Phil Demmel gets his own Demmelition King V model
Jackson guitars have unveiled a new signature model, the Demmelition King V, designed in collaboration with guitarist Phil Demmel of Machine Head.
The Demmelition King V has the line’s classic sharp V-shaped alder body, with a more aggressive twist thanks to its additional cutouts on the Vs.
It has a through-body quarter-sawn maple neck, with a bound compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12-16 inches) and 24 jumbo frets. It also has mother-of-pearl shark fin position inlays and black-bound headstock with an inlaid mother-of-pearl Jackson logo. Pickups are by EMG – an 81 at the bridge and a 60 at the neck. Each has its own CTS volume control. Other features include a Floyd Rose Original double-locking two-point tremolo bridge, black hardware and die-cast tuners. It comes in red with black bevels, black with silver bevels or white with black bevels. Most of all, it comes looking very metal.
