Jackson has just rolled out the brand new X Series Scott Ian KVX King V “Baldini” and it pretty much screams shred. The Baldini offers a 24.75″ scale length and Nyatoh body, a one-piece through-body Maple neck with graphite reinforcement, a 12″-16″ compound radius bound Rosewood fingerboard, and 22 jumbo frets.
The Baldini comes loaded with Jackson High-Output humbucking pickups, a Floyd Rose Special double locking bridge, and yes – a finish inspired by Dimebag.
“This guitar was 100 percent inspired by Dimebag. Darrell had what he called the Dime Slime, and I had a Custom Shop done as an homage to Darrell’s Dime Slime. When I started playing that guitar live, people were flipping the fuck out over that guitar and how it looked. People were blown away [and asking] ‘When is that going to be available?’ Well, now it’s available!”
