I have two Schecter's already. First one I got was full of dings, second one was a Loomis signature that had a pickup screw insert jammed in crooked, needless to say changing the pups was a nightmare. After reading what people say about the QC getting better, I went to my local dealer and told him to order a KM-7 MK-II. I took it out of the box and alas Schecter still maintains their sh**y standards. The front side on the wenge was not properly filled so the black portion of the headstock is full of holes. The veneer binding and fretboard were glued on with the most haste possible leading to some ugly squeeze out Finally, the high E string Ferrule is not set in right. I mean 5 years of hearing that Schecter's QC has become top notch and yet the defects this thing has are those of a sub 300USD chinese guitar. The store will exchange the guitar but I have to wait for a new one.. I hope this is just a lemon.
