Jackson Y2KV was a guitar designed by Dave Mustaine, in an effort to create a less aggressive and retro-looking flying V guitar, to contrast for his usual King V. It was mainly used for touring of Risk and The World Needs a Hero as Mustaine's own model, with less than a dozen produced, including some prototypes.[1] Eventually, the Y2KV went mass production and introduced in the Jackson Guitars year 2000 catalog.

The DVD concert Rude Awakening features the Y2KV with a Floyd Rose bridge and a "Shut up" sticker in between the pickups. For the closure song "Holy Wars", Mustaine uses a Y2KV stars and stripes (USA flag).


The guitar resembles a classic Flying V shape, with rounded edges, and symmetrical and rounded headstock as well.[2]
