Schecter teamed up with metal instrumentalist Keith Merrow to bring his perfect guitar vision to life. The result is the KM-7 MK-III, a beast of an axe made from exotic woods, faultless hardware and precise craftsmanship.
LA-based Schecter have a rocketing reputation for making top quality guitars equipped with all the specs a modern metal player would want.
Body and neck
The KM-7 is built from some of the most beautiful woods on the market today. A stunning Burl top brings the trans finish to life on the contoured natural back Swamp Ash body. The nine-ply modern 'C' neck is made of Wenge, Maple and eye-catching Purple Heart strips. This is simply a beautiful, dangerous-looking guitar.
Fretting the 24 stainless steel frets on the KM-7's 14"-16" compound radius Ebony fretboard is absolutely effortless. And they're rust resistant so have an extra long lifespan.
The active Keith Merrow Fishman pickups may look like metal machines, but they're surprisingly versatile. They produce three distinct voices when switched between positions via a custom-fitted selector.
In position one you'll get a vintage P.A.F low-to-mid grunt. Set in the middle it's an airy chime with punchy mids and tighter lows. And in position three is a single-coil setting for those Strat tones.
Think of all the hottest hardware you can. The KM-7 has it. Once adjusted to the glow in the dark side dots on stage, there's no going back. It's also got the ever reliable Hipshot bridge and tuners to provide excellent intonation and stability. An Ernie Ball compensated nut kills any unwanted fret buzz.
Next to the neck pickup is a heel access spoke wheel to the two way adjustable truss rod. Altering the truss rod can be the worst part of setting up a guitar the way you want. But the spoke wheel makes the process a whole lot simpler.
