Boasting an electrifying offset angular shape and lightning-fast neck, Jackson X Series Kelly™ models exude metal sophistication, while also delivering massive sound and reliable performance at an exceptional value.
The KEX features lightwood and resonant poplar body-wings and a through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement to guard against climate-induced warping. Hosting 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays, the 12”-16” compound radius bound laurel fingerboard has a more rounded profile at the nut for natural-feeling chording and riffing and gradually flattens towards the heel for optimal shred articulation and bends.
Ready to roar, the KEX is also equipped with a pair of volcanic Jackson high-output humbucking pickups that give this metal beast an expansive voice loaded with crunchy, full-bodied tone ideal for brazen lead work or assertive rhythms runs. Command your sound with a three-way pickup toggle switch, single volume and tone controls, and enjoy exceptional dynamic response and reliable tuning stability from the Floyd Rose® Special double-locking tremolo bridge.
Make a bold statement with the X Series Kelly KEX, available in all-new Ferrari Red with black bevels, black hardware and a black Jackson® pointed 6-in-line headstock.

Highlights & Specs:
Jackson High-Output Humbucking Pickups: Jackson high-output humbucking pickups were painstakingly voiced for full, rich tone while providing maximum overdrive and sustain.
Maple Neck-Through-Body with Graphite Reinforcement & Scarf Joint: True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980, allowing for greater playability and sustain. Neck-through is a method of guitar construction which involves extending the piece of wood(maple) used for the neck through the entire length of the body. Graphite reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
