Schecter KM-7 (Keith Merrow) Signature Thread









Not even a Schecter fan, but I'm overwhelmed with copious amounts of GAS...

Beat me to this by a minute, I'm very, very intrigued by this thing, looks to be extended scale judging from pickup-bridge distance.

I'm betting, like 95% of Schecter 7-strings, it'll be 26.5'' or more.

Hopefully Keith can give us some specs. On his Facebook page, he said it has the SLS neck profile, which is like a slightly rounder Wizard neck.
Also, I wish Duncan did more white pickups. Would look a lot like his BRJ, which I loooove.

I'm definitely going to get this as my first 7 string but I really hope that he comes out with a six string version too. I'd have both.

Though I'm pretty sure the production version will have one.

Like I said in the first post, I'd say it's a Maus, which is a C-7 with sharper, deepe horns.



Although the horns look a bit rounder on the KM-7.

I never thought I'd want to give Schecter my money... until now.
Well played.

White pickups would be awesome, but SD charges a LOT more for those since they are considered "Custom Shop"...

Unbelievable. Best seven signature I've seen so far. The see thru white finish with matte black back it's pure deliciousness.Hardly could have been better than this,well done Schecter and Merrow

The guy that once gained the light green spot,got the reputation disabled

And with an unlimited gassing list, but very limited cash.

I'm curious to see how this gets priced. Low enough and it could fairly well annihilate the mid-range production 7 world.

I'm going to bet $899 or $999. Most Schecter sigs are priced around there. Most expensive one I know of is the Syn with the Sustainer, and that's around $1,150.

Makes sense, IIRC the Maus C-7 falls right in that $899-$999 range.
