The B.C. Rich Kerry King V features a hard Canadian maple bolt on neck, a beveled top basswood body, a rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets and a KKV inlay at the 12th fret, and 2 BDSM humbucker pickups. A Kahler Tremolo and B.C. Rich BDSM pickups highlight this nicely equipped bolt on V.Bolt-on Construction The Kerry King V Electric Guitar uses a classic Bolt-on construction. The maple neck is bolted on with 4 screws to the body. This construction offers some added flexibility in the instruments adjustment and provides the option to change the neck in the future.B.C. Rich BDSM Pickups B.C. Rich designed their BDSM humbucking pickups to provide a solid sound and to be durable while delivering high output. BDSM stands for Broad Dynamic Sonically Matched. That simply means the pickup is designed to reproduce a wide range of frequencies accurately (broad dynamic). Then they are tested and matched in pairs (neck and bridge) by their inherent individual and signature tonal and output characteristics to give a solidly balanced tone (sonically matched).Beveled Top The Kerry King V Electric Guitar employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look.
