    No Shit ey?
    I went through the specs and they just kept piling up, then pulled the trigger.
    To me, the combined matrix of selling points:
    1. Sustainiac
    2. Nazgul for teh brootz(?)
    3. 26.5" (always wanted)
    4. Floyd
    5. Maple board- nope, but that's OK
    6. That Lambo Blue is pretty sweet
    7. 7 strings....sure why not?
    8. Stainless Steel x jumbo fretz0rz
    9. Ultra Thin C neck profile

    This hopefully will keep my 2018 GAS under control. I think I can make it with just this one man, just this one, I swear.

    The KM7 that I bought for $499 is at the guitar center in florence KY if anybody is interested in it. The case it came in was a bc rich hardshell that fit it extremely well. Only reason I took it back was to pay some bills. I will be getting another one someday.

    That's seriously a good deal! If I had the money, and didn't just buy two expensive guitars...... I'd love to buy it as a backup to my KM7. By far the best 7 string I have ever played!

    I'm like 95% of the way to pulling the trigger.

    stinkoman, can you describe the condition some more? Everythings seems OK except for the fretboard, that looks sketch from the pic online.

    Screw it. If it doesn't work out I can return it. I pulled the trigger.

    That's the spirit! Although for that price, you absolutely will be satisfied. Hell I'd pay full price for my MKII. It's by far my favorite seven string.

    For sure. I ended up getting my KM6 for around $250 out of pocket (trade in!) and that's my favorite guitar that I have, so I expect nothing less!

    Any ideas when the mkiii 6 string is coming out? And whether the colour options will be the same?

    I got one. It was too hard to pass up for the price.

    Got mine yesterday... unfortunately it looks like it's going back. Had a few spots of buffing compound that needed cleaned up, no big deal. Unfortunately two of the open strings sound like a Sitar, not sure if it is the nut or the first fret is high in two spots. Overall it's a cool guitar, but don't feel like trouble shooting it so back it goes :(

    Bummer! Going to get a replacement or cancel the endeavor entirely?
