NAMM 2009: Another Kerry King B.C. Rich V

There’s another Kerry King V on the way. Jeff Hanneman was always my favourite Slayer guitarist but it seems Kerry’s the one who got bitten by theh the endorsement bug (although check out Jeff’s ESP signature guitars).

Here’s the press release:

The hundreds of thousands of people that have seen Kerry King on stage with Slayer recently have seen his Generation 2 graphics. This new striking tribal design is floating over a hand drawn flame making it visually striking. Now B.C. Rich is bringing this great new graphic to a new production model called the Kerry King V2.

The body shape is the aggressively styled B.C. Rich speed V and it has been augmented with many Kerry King inspired features. The V2 model is equipped with B.C.R.A. active pickups and a genuine Kahler tremolo. It also features a basswood body, bolt-on construction, ebony fingerboard, special inlay and a Beast headstock. The 24 jumbo frets provide 2 full octaves of notes to shred.
