They should. If my $400 Omen 8 went through the US setup treatment, it'd be kinda bonkers for them not to put a ~$1000 guitar through.

I'd guess 6 months.

Also, if Keith is still reading this forum I'm wondering if you pulled the tuning up to your drop Bb (sticker on case said it was setup for drop A) and if so what gauges are you using?

No writer's block here, just a complete and utter lack of motivation to follow through.

Any idea when this model will be available? On Schecter's facebook page, in a comment on a different 2014 model, I was surprised that they said it'll be available for Xmas this year?!!! Usually the new models are announced in next NAMM, available 2~3 months after that.

Schecter usually releases their models a month or two after NAMM. The Banshee-8 is going to be released in December.

If it's the Banshee models you're talking about, maybe. But I highly doubt this KM7 guitar will be launched that soon. I'm supposed to be getting the 2nd run of prototypes (which will likely be the final version) at the end of the month. It's supposed to be released at NAMM, which means it would be shipping around February. I suppose it's possible that it would be sooner, but I'm not sure.

Just another little FYI, there will be a few options/variations of the KM7 guitar available. The core design of the guitar will be the same, however. But, there will be something for pretty much everyone. Stoked for you guys to see what's headed this way.

I've been tracking an album with the prototype, and I couldn't be happier with it. It's such a great playing guitar. It's exciting to think that the final version will be even better than this first one after a couple small adjustments. I've let a few close guitarist buddies play it, and they all think that it's easily the best Schecter to date, and will be one of the coolest options for a mid-priced 7. I'd have to agree!

Can't imagine this would be terribly popular....but....if there was a variation with a dark rosewood board and a Pegasus-you could stick a fork in me 'cause I'd be done.

I think this is the first guitar I've thought I had to buy since I joined the site. I've started getting that GAS feeling, you know, the fluttering heartbeat, the constant daydreaming of playing it, and the half-assed plans to come up with the money?

I've never seen a sig so well matched to whatever passes for a consensus in the seven-string world, especially not from Schecter. I know they've had a few popular sigs, but I suspect this one will outdo them in popularity given enough time.

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.

Would you mind being super-awesome and posting up a picture of the original proto next to the 2nd run so we would all be able to see the changes made to the more finalized version please, Keith? Me love you LONG TIME!!!! As I said previously in the thread, I'm really not playing the only 7 I have anymore, but honestly I LOVE the specs of this thing, I don't have any ash-bodied guitars and just about everything ticks a box for things I dig or feel would be useful to me, even with the bonus string. Curious to see the model options, but pretty sure I'll end up with one of these.

Guitars: PRS (lots <3), Suhr, Parker, Schecter
Rigs: Kemper + Atomic CLR, Invader 100, Port City and Mojo cabs w/ Scumback M75's/Hellatone 60's

Home. As this is Keith's Sig thread its probably not cool to post pix of my Schecter guitars, not what the thread is about etc. I looked on this hard drive [new laptop couple weeks ago which you can verify by my posts about my new laptop in the "Recording Studio" thread a couple weeks ago lol] and I have 5 of my old Schecters including my 2006 Loomis which I have sitting next to me now on this drive. I could probably dig another 5-8 off the old drive if ya just gotta see 'em. I'd have to really think how many I had that I don't have pix of. I grew up in North Hollywood and first heard of Schecter about umm... about 1977.
So if you want to see the pix PM me and I'll email them to you. My Loomis, which I refinished, has before and after pix in the "Loomis Brotherhood" thread. I'ts blue now lol.

But those aren't the specs that I had in mind for my guitar . Safe to say you'll probably see an OFR version, but probably not those other things. They have other models that are close to what you described, I believe.

I appreciate hearing everyone's requests on what I should change, but I'm very happy with it how it is now, and I think that's important. If it's not exactly what I want in a guitar, it kind of defeats the purpose of having a signature instrument. I wouldn't feel good about it if I didn't totally love the design and spec. I know it's not perfect for everyone, but I'm stoked on it, and I think it'll make some players happy. I'm looking forward to it!

If you had a sig guitar, what specs would you choose? I'll tell you what... it was the easiest thing to dream up, and the hardest thing to actually commit to. I actually lost sleep while thinking of the possibilities. In the end, I kept it pretty simple. Glad I did, because I'm very happy with the result!
