Nah, just a 7-string single coil and a possible Devy 7-string set.
Make 8 string singles Fishman!
I recently bought a KM-7 and the volume pot crackles. I see this happens a lot and should be an easy replacement. However I'm not savvy at these types of things. Can anybody point me to the type/brand of pot I need to purchase to replace it with? Thanks!
I want t try the mkIII, but I get a little peeved that you have to change out the volume knob on Schecters. Had to on my km6 and my km7mkii, plus my friend on his hellraiser. It’s very common and I think when spending $1k or more on an axe, stuff should work properly.
I've never had to change my volume knob. Not sure why you had to on both of yours.
After buying any overseas or mid level/entry level guitars; my inclination is to replace the pots, wiring, and nut immediately. In your case, I would just get the equivalent CTS model pots and switch you need. I believe these all come with the EBMM compensated nut, so no need there. If you solder, your only out the cost of components and 30 min of your time. There may be better quality components out there, but they've always worked fine for me.
IMO of course.
I haven't either, but I've definitely heard of people having this issue. I'll admit the volume pot on my MKII does feel a bit fragile.
But I'm not quite sure which one I need. The Schecter website only says: "Controls Volume (Push-Pull)/3-Way Switch". How do I know I pick the right one?
If you look up 500K Push-Pull Pot on Amazon you should see a DiMarzio one. I've used that in the past and it was good.
Find the push pull pots, measure the shaft height (giggity) in your guitar's, and get the matching one.
Switches are pretty simple, you shouldn't have an issue there.
Choosing between 250k, 500k or whatever pots, is somewhat of a personal choice. I'm not sure what comes stock.
Holy cr@p!...looks amazing! Im aiming for the black one.
the purple/blue one is amazing. hopefully the MIK versions look half as good.
Dont you guys dare not to get one!
Can't wait to get the MIK black one in neck through version! I hope it will have the same (or really close) specs and looks.
And..... the black pro is sold already.
having in mind construction differences (set neck vs ntb) between mk1 and mk2, are there any resonable differences in sound between these models?
maybe mk1 is more snappy, agressive and tight because of set neck? or maybe the differences are so small that it is difficult to tell?
maybe someone has both guitars with the same pickups and did some test or just could write some words about it?
I suck at describing sounds but I'll have a go...
My MKI to me sounds a little more rounded where my MKII has more snap and snarl. I should also note my MKI is on the heavier side and my MKII is on the lighter side so that is probably feeding into it. I should really do shoot out as I have never really compared the two head to head.
