Keith Merrow is a master of metal production and guitar. He has recorded with top bands and produced videos for Seymour Duncan among other but it is probably his work with Jeff Loomis in Conquering Dystopia that he is most known for. To get the tones he needed in that band he needed a special guitar...The KM7-FR-S is the latest version of his signature that is fitted out with loads of top grade tools.
Great Feel, Light Weight.
Keith's playing quickly switches between high speed riffing and insane solos that sit perfectly in the song. To make this switch the guitar needs to be designed for smooth playability and great access to all frets. Made with a Swamp Ash body and Maple neck with carbon reinforcement along with an Ebony fretboard this guitar is the perfect mixture of lightweight feel with great tones.
Keith Merrow is a big lover of Seymour Duncan pickups so it only makes sense that his favourite Seymour Duncan Nazgul pickup is in the bridge position. This guitar is a bit different to his other signature models however as it uses a Sustaniac pickup in the neck. Opening up a world of infinite sustain at the flick of a switch you will not believe how much this can add to your sound until you have one.
