This Dean Kerry King Overlord signature model comes from the USA Custom Shop and is not subtle. It screams visually, with a sharp-angled body and highly figured headstock that make a bold statement
Kerry King Overlord
The new Dean Kerry King Overlord signature model is very extreme, both visually and as a high-gain riff machine. It features a solid mahogany body and a maple top finished in Dark Gray. The 24.75″ scale length set-thru 3-piece maple neck has a custom Kerry King C-shaped neck profile and 12″ fretboard radius. It is fitted with 24 jumbo frets on an ebony fretboard.
There is also some pretty fancy inlay work, that includes handcrafted Slayer-inspired pearl custom inlays accompanied by LED fret markers along the side.
It comes loaded with a Sustainiac neck pickup and an EMG 81 with PA2 Preamp Booster pickup at the bridge position. This means this guitar will scream with high gain and offer infinite sustained notes as well.
Controls consist of Volume, PA2 Booster on/off, a 3-way toggle, Tone, Sustainiac on/off with mode switch and a 25K pot to further control volume and tone.
The hardware is all black and includes a Kahler KFK tremolo system and a set of Grover 18:1 tuners.
If you enjoyed Slayer and love Kerry King then you will understand what this guitar is all about. It isn’t subtle and is even more outlandish than his previous V-shaped model.
The perfect weapon for the job at hand!
