Jackson X Series Kelly™ KEX Rosewood Fingerboard Satin Black Finish
Whatever way you look at it . . . sophisticated, sultry, commanding or simply erotically sexual, the satin black Jackson X Series Kelly KEX is one incredible guitar.
Featuring a slab top, an electrifying angular shape and lightning-fast neck, the Jackson KEX Series Kelly™ exudes metal sophistication along with massive sound and – thanks to it’s PRO-SCM setup – superb playability and performance at a truly exceptional price.
At the heart of the Jackson KEX is a single through body maple neck that features graphite reinforcement rods and a scarf joint. Light and resonant Basswood body-wings complete the look that is 100% Kelly. The Jackson Kelly™ was the brainchild of Aussie Heavy Metal Guitarist, the late Brad Kelly of celebrated Metal band – Heaven. His legacy lives on in his music and the iconic Kelly series Guitars. Brad was also instrumental in developing what we now know as the compound radius fretboard.
The Jackson X Series Kelly™ KEX features a 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays. Another major plus is the genuine Indian Rosewood Fretboard. Rosewood has been listed as an endangered species and consequently, Rosewood fretboards have become increasingly rare and found on only the most expensive instruments. It’s right here on the KEX!
The electronics are also top shelf and the KEX is equipped with a pair of Jackson high-output humbucking pickups. A single volume and tone control, three-way toggle switch and genuine Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo system combine to provide amazing tone, exceptional dynamic response and reliable performance.
Our Jackson X Series Kelly™ KEX is finished in Satin Black with classy gold hardware and white binding along the body, neck and Jackson® pointed 6-in-line headstock.
Our price also includes a PRO-SCM setup…sharp frets, high action, bad intonation etc etc…all sorted.
By the way, we have done the math on Aus vs US pricing. You can buy this model (condition unknown) for USD$650. Add freight ($100), Duty (5%) and GST (10%). Just on those numbers, we are cheaper! Add warranty and our PRO-SCM setup – its a no brainer. Your challenge? We only have one.
Do not be misled – unless indicated otherwise, this incredible guitar is available from southcoastmusic right now!
