Jackson Custom Shop KE2 QMT Chlorine

Item: FE2811001105

Straight out of the Jackson Custom Shop, this killer KE2 with a Quilted Maple top gets noticed immediately. Its stunning Chlorine Blue finish has been adorned with Gold hardware, zebra pickups, matching headstock, and a cool “outline” logo that lets you know this is not a standard USA production guitar. The Kelly’s rise to fame came back in the early 90s when Marty Friedman was “schooling” us all on “what makes a great Metal guitar solo”, and this shape has since become iconic of Heavy Metal music. Obviously the design was inspired by the Gibson Explorer, but the Kelly offers several improvements that make this axe a Metal monster. First off, the Kelly is a lighter guitar than an Explorer allowing us Metal Maniacs more freedom to get crazy on stage, and secondly, in the studio the Kelly is one of the easiest to play “sitting down” guitars of any of the crazy shaped instruments. The lower “waist cut” (that rests on your leg when sitting) is exactly where it should be… right between the humbuckers like a Soloist. You’ll also notice the lightning fast neck profile that Jackson refers to as the “speed neck” and is only used on the Kelly.

We’d all have to agree this is a killer guitar, but let’s take it to the Custom Shop level. This axe of mass destruction is loaded with Seymour Duncan Distortion pickups in the neck and bridge, these sound chunky on the low end and sweetly saturated on the highs, harmonics jump out of this guitar with ease. The frets are pure stainless steel so when you’re shredding scales at dizzying speeds… these frets feel like your skating on ice at the verge of losing control, and I mean that in an exhilarating kind of way. So, if you’re looking for a great sounding, beautiful looking, inspiringly easy playing guitar that is pure Jackson Custom Shop, look no further and buy this one today. – Scott
