    that is very cool. I thought the mini toggle had to be an on off on but I guess either would work.

    hey thanks again i bought the toggle you suggested and it comes tomorrow.
    quick question -- i looked up the fishman wiring diagrams for the merrow set and it shows an on-off-on switch. did you have you do anything different to get the on-on-on switch wired up? or am i cool if i just take out the old switch and wire the new switch up with the wires in the same spots? thanks.

    The On-On-On DPDT switch needs an additional step. I found a fishman wiring diagram using this switch, the only issue is i think where it indicates the behavior or the operation is wrong, i think is 2-1-3, not 3-2-1, if someone can clarify this...

    switch is in and working, and if its different than the orig switch i certainly cant tell.

    looks like its an on-on-on to begin with in the mkiii artist.

    Super happy. thanks all for your help

    Hi guys ! You two have brought us a great tutorial, that actually works perfectly, of how to make that posible for many MKII owners like me. Thank you !!

    I wanted to do that mod on mine as soon as I saw the MKIII, but I was afraid of damaging something on electronics.

    I still have a couple of questions about what kind of DPDT or SPDT switch to buy:
    Amperage and Voltage does matter?

    Can someone owning an original KMIII make a picture or tell us all what ampere and volt has the original fishman wiring from factory? and what manufacturer is?

    Thanks once again !

    Just saw this too, definitely going to pick one up in white. It ticks all the boxes for me as a replacement #1 7 string

    The hybrid looks really cool but I don't really like where it sits in the KM lineup at the moment. I guess it really depends on the specifics of the pickups and which statements are true. If you can actually wire them up the same as the proper fluences then it's a fine deal. If they are truly one voice then the hybrid is in a weird spot because it is only $70 less than the very comparable MKII fishman version, but also $500 more than the very similar looking grey MKIII.

    I'm feeling very certain that the intention is to do away with the MKII. I mean we just had that blowout sale, I haven't seen Sweetwater have any in stock in what feels like 2 months or so. Maybe that's just my speculation, but it seems to fit what I've been seeing.

    All variants of the MK-2 have been discontinued. Schecter has moved their product pages to the "VAULT" section of their website.

    does anybody know what string post length is on the hipshot tuners on the Mark 3? 19mm, 20mm, 21mm or 23mm?

    im guessing 20 or 21 but do not know for sure.

    That makes more sense then, if the MKIIs are going away. I still think it's a little expensive given their other comparable offerings like the SLS elites (plus it still competes with all the MKIIs that are NOS in stores for the time being).

    I like it though. Wouldn't be considering all this if I didn't want to buy one.
