Schecter KM-7 MK-III STANDARD – Keith Merrow
Based off of Keith Merrow’s USA MK-III Studio model, the Schecter KM-7 MK-III Standard is an amazing value for modern metal guitarists. Its premium roasted maple neck boasts an ultra thin “C” profile that sets the perfect foundation for precise technical playing. A pair of Schecter Diamond KM humbucking pickups pound out lively tone with impressive punch and detail. To top it off, the Schecter KM-7 MK-III Standard includes an Ernie Ball compensated nut for rock-solid intonation.
Schecter Diamond KM humbucker set
Anyone familiar with Keith Merrow knows that he’s a tone fanatic and a big fan of passive pickups in general. He loves their earthy tone. He revels in the way that a passive pickup responds to his pick attack. Conquering dystopia requires killer tone, and the Schecter KM-7 MK-III Standard’s Diamond KM humbucking pickups deliver the goods.
A neck meant for metal
The KM-7 MK-III Standard’s roasted maple neck is a must-feel experience. This beautiful ensemble of woods provides stability for the neck’s Ultra Thin “C” profile — a favorite feature among players here at Sweetwater. It stays out of the way as your fingers cruise up and down the KM-7 MK-III Standard’s ebony fingerboard. Enjoy easy chording and wide bending without inhibiting your playing, thanks to the fingerboard’s compound radius. Beyond that, this guitar’s 26.5″ scale length is ideal for modern metal, whether playing in standard or drop tunings. And its carbon fiber reinforcement rods and spoke wheel truss rod adjustment keep the neck right where you need it.
