Jackson is an iconic brand for all metal-heads. If you’re a metal-head, you probably like the music of someone who uses a Jackson. The Jackson JS32 is the affordable version of the iconic King V used by many. This Jackson JS32 King V review will show you why I love it so much.
The Specs of the Jackson JS32 King V
According to Jacksons website, the Jackson Js32 King V features “a basswood body, bolt-on maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement, compound-radius (12”-16”) bound rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, and bound headstock. Other features include dual high-output Jackson humbucking pickups with ceramic magnets and three-way toggle switching, Jackson-branded double-locking tremolo bridge, black hardware and die-cast tuners.”
My Personal Experience and Honest Review
I own the Jackson JS32 King V and I will say that I have no real problems with it. The only problem I have had with it is the third fret inlay falling out on me. People love to talk down on licensed Floyd roses, but I have no problems with this one at all. I can slam on the whammy bar all I want and the guitar will not go out of tune. The neck feels thin and smooth, enabling you to play fast comfortably.
This guitar sounds great from the neck position to the bridge position. The Jackson JS32 King V can get some nice warm tones from the neck despite being a guitar mostly for metal. It does not only do metal but it can also play rock and blues. I’ve been able to play all types of genres on this guitar to my surprise. Paired with the Blackstar HT 5, (which I have a review on) or an amp from this list of the best guitar amps for beginner to intermediate players it’s perfect.
This guitar plays great for a metal guitar and it is only an affordable trim of the guitar so it blows your expectations out of the water. The only reason it gets a 4 out of 5 is because it is an affordable guitar, it isn’t perfect and it’s not expected. It does sound good and it is well built, but it is no American version. This isn’t just another Jackson King V review, this is honest. If you are a beginner to intermediate player, this is the perfect guitar for you.
