I've been eyeing up a King V but I'm leaning towards an RR3 at the moment. It's an age/Randy Rhoads thing. The neck on those are super. I know what you mean about the EMGs. I had a 81 and a 85 and got rid of them, didn't like the tone, or lack of really.Duke of Metal said:I like the King V alot.. it has a really nice neck.. The tone of the EMGs I am not too big on, but it works great in drop D tuning. Thats what I mainly use it for. the lespaul is for standard tuning. But sometimes I go back and forth between them.
