    the silver one I modded to have a “chrome theme” on accident just because only chrome parts were available for cheap on reverb but it worked out to be kinda cool

    No, you'd have to solder one of the connectors that comes with it. If it would even fit in there that is, it didn't on the earlier KMs.

    I installed the rechargeable battery in my KM-II but i had to make some mods, the push/pull was replaced for a traditional one (smaller) to give space to the circuit board, installed a mini switch to access all three voices (previously there was only access to 2, so it was improved :cool:) and placed the rechargeable battery in the space of the traditional one, but removing the plastic cover/box, otherwise, it wouldn't have fit. I plan to have a custom plastic cover made for the battery compartment.

    I have a C-7 Apocalypse for sale on Reverb atm. Every time I pull it out of the closet to make sure it still works, it blows me away how a guitar marketed for extreme metal could play a Phish set if you wanted. And I'm not even good so I'd be curious to see what an advanced guitar player and their shenanigans could do.

    Been waffling hard whether I really want to sell it. I prefer my Evertune and Floyd, but damn it does sound good.

    Don’t see many people playing the apocalypses - I always wonder how the wood looks in person. Sometimes it looks almost green/yellow, sometimes just gray, could be the lighting in pictures

    I know what you mean. Mine is quite green, not grey like the stock photo's on Schecter's site. I've seen a fair amount of variation on the one's I've seen on Reverb as well. The grain and the orangish spots do look good though.

    Most I've seen in person lean predominantly grey

    I don't need another 7 right now but man that looks great.

    I keep hoping he does a baritone 6 at some point but doubt it will ever happen

    If his stuff with Nightmarer keeps on going I'm hoping we'll see a 28+ inch version, whether 6 or 7, as their tunings are F and lower iirc

    His old Strictly 7 was 27.5, same with Ola's, but I know he was generally more of a 26-26.5 kind of guy. His BRJs were like 26.2, no?

    I've been looking for a used blue one since it came out! How is it holding up?
