    Hey Keith, a quick question....

    I have bought about 10 USA Schecter's from them and was talking to Michael about your model. If possible, would you approve of a customer purchasing one of your USA Sigs but in a different finish color? I was thinking this maybe...

    If you can convince them to do that, I don't care at all.

    Hey DIOBOLIC5150, do we have an ETA on your sig Fishman pickups? I've been looking for a new set of pickups for my Ibby guitar, but I just remembered you had those down the pipeline. :lol:

    Also, estimated price? And are the tabs going to be squared off like Duncans or triangles like Dimarzio?

    EDIT: Just saw pics and they're triangled. Thank fuck for that, Keith. :lol: I know triangle tabs aren't common, but it's a pain in the ass wrecking the resale value of pickups when you have to file down the tabs to fit them into triangle-routed guitars.

    Double Edit: Also, will it come with the charging jack like the Greg Koch model? Or is it just the pickup and wiring? Also, any word on the single coils? My Ibby is H-S-H so it would be kickass to have one of the first H-S-H 7-string fishmans. :lol:

    I believe his pickups have a single coil voicing built into the humbuckers, I don't think he has a separate sig single coil.
    Fishman does sell their own single coils individually however. The KSE pickup page on the Fishman website has wiring diagrams for HsH configs.

    Forgot to mention I was talking about the 7-string set. They don't made a 7-string single coil... yet. They're rumored to be making a 7-string single coil, and I'd be looking to get one to pair with the Merrow set in an H-S-H config.

    +100 :D I have been googling their model numbers almost daily, not a single online store anywhere has them, including ebay/Reverb. That was not the case last year, IIRC, I got Tosin's like a couple of weeks after they were announced.

    One site has the 6-string set listed, but no ETA or price.

    I'm just now discovering this guitar and seems like a lot of bang for your buck. Do all versions have stainless steel frets or is that a later version like the kmIII?

    The only thing you might want to do to an Mk1 or Mk2 is upgrade the electronics.
    Mines came in a bit shady.

    Everything else on these guitars is quality.
    Skimping some on electronics is understandable.

    It kinda why i jumped on it. I was waiting for guitar center to send me pictures since they only had one, but i figured by the time I would get them it would be sold, and guitar center has a return policy i'd take a chance on it.

    Do those rumors happen to include anything about an 8 sting single coil?
