Schecter Keith Merrow Signature KM-7 MK-III Standard in Trans Black Burst

Written by

Elliot Stent

Schecter teamed up with metal instrumentalist Keith Merrow to bring his vision of the perfect guitar to life. The result is the KM-7 MK-III, a 7-string baritone-scale beast boasting exotic woods and faultless hardware. As the third iteration of Merrow's popular signature guitar, the KM-7 MK-III is arguably the most comfortable and playable instrument that Schecter has ever conceived - making it perfect for touring and the studio.


A swamp ash body gives this guitar a light feel, perfect for long sets where an ergonomic instrument is necessary. Giving you a full-bodied sound, this serves as the perfect tonal foundation for the high-output Schecter Diamond KM pickups; bringing out the best of their qualities. Adorned with a beautiful Quilted Maple top - this guitar will get plenty of attention on stage!

The Schecter KM-7 MK-III's ultra thin "C" neck profile provides further comfort, enabling fast runs and lead lines without any hindrance. Constructed of a mixture of Roasted Maple and standard Maple tonewoods, you can expect a snappy response with plenty of mid-range attack. The roasting process also removes any moisture from the material, which along with the 5-piece design ensures rock solid stability in differing climates.

Electronics & Hardware

One of the most noteworthy features of this instrument is its dual dose of Schecter Diamond KM humbuckers. Delivering ultra-hot tones that can handle copious amounts of gain, these pickups have lots of upper mid-range bite that makes them particularly useful with high-gain amplifiers. But they aren't built solely for distortion, as with clean tones they sound warm and pure - perfect for softly-picked arpeggios or chords. And with the ability to engage a coil-split function, you can attain those glassy single-coil tones too!

The Schecter custom hardtail bridge is machined super-smoothly, enabling comfortable palm-muting. Its high-mass design also ensures superb sustain and fullness, especially in conjunction with the string-thru-body format.
