    Is it the same model Keith playing in this recent video? No maple board though, could it be a prototype?

    That
    The one in the video is one of his US custom shop guitars. Same specs as his other US models but with the satin white finish and white pickups..... pretty sure that’s all it is BUT Don’t quote me on that tho.

    this new one with maple board is a prototype for 2020 production MKIII’s.....
    I check for new info on it everyday lol

    I remember with the Hellraiser Hybrid, it combined elements of the Hellraiser series and the Blackjack SLS series. I'm guessing this combines features of the KM MKIII with another Schecter model, or just combines all 3 KMs into one hodgepodge.

    Just pulled the trigger on a MKIII Pro 6'er. I'll definitely do a NGD when it arrives, but for now here's the shop's photo! So stoked!

    Sorry if this was covered before...but does anyone know if the Fishman universal rechargeable battery pack will fit into these new MKIII's? I know it comes stock on the Studio, but for the one's it doesn't come stock with? (IE the above PRO).

    looks like they put the flamed maple on the headstock but never stained it a very odd choice

    Have the issues with the mk III been sorted or are they still kind of a dicey prospect? I still would prefer an old banshee elite 6 but the radiused body on these are cool

    Last one I bought wasn't as bad as the first 3 but still had a minor chipping issue. Really quite negligible but it was at a steal price.

    Definitely like the neck profile on the MK-3 over the MK-2 which was too flat for how thin it was. Still very usable though.

    Way late to the party here, but I LOVE the transparent white, but the yellow-ish transparent white not so much. Any proven method to remove the yellowing? Is it just a breakdown in the top layer of the clear coat? TIA!
