King V KV2 Electric Guitar
The King V is an electric guitar made based on the Gibson Flying V. The King V was originally designed for Robbin Crosby of Ratt and he popularized the guitar throughout the 80s. Robbin's nick name was King hence the name of the King V. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine eventually became the guitarist most identified with using this model.
The KV2 is a variant of the King V, which features include an unmistakable look and unbelievable sound. The body is made of alder and is intersected by a neck-thru quarter sawn maple neck with ebony fingerboard. It has Neck and Bridge humbucking pickups, both from Seymour Duncan. This model has 24 frets with Floyd Rose bridge and is constructed in the US. The KV2 is one of the 2 USA Select Series guitars (alongside the KE2) built with the "Speed Neck" profile, a slim neck thickness for a fast playability. So KV2 is so popoulared by many heavy metal and thrash metal guitarists. A well-known example of them is Mille Petrozza.
Mille Petrozza(born December 18, 1966), who is also named Miland Petrozza, is a German guitarist and singer. He is best known for being the lead vocalist of the band KREATOR. In 1994, he played guitar in the metal all-star band Voodoocult. Petrozza has an extensive collection of guitars, but his primary guitar is a KV2 guitar, which he plays almost exclusively live.
