7-string loaded with Custom Features

The Schecter KM-7 MK-II solidbody electric guitar is YouTube heavy metal star Keith Merrow's second guitar design with Schecter. Every aspect of the KM-7 MK-II is aimed at building the ultimate instrument for highly technical playing styles. Construction appointments like an Ernie Ball compensated nut and a 5-piece neck ensure optimum intonation and stability. The ultra-thin neck is capped with a compound-radius fretboard for fast playing. And two Seymour Duncan passive humbucking pickups deliver enough power to drive any amp to saturation. The Schecter KM-7 MK-II was definitely designed by a man who knows what modern metal players need.

Schecter Keith Merrow KM-7 MK-II Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Attention to detail
  • Sleek, fast, and stable
  • A powerful tone
Attention to detail

One of the most obvious construction appointments on the KM-7 MK-II is the 5-piece maple/wenge neck. Extending through the body, this wood choice ensures maximum stability from the neck's ultra-thin profile. And the carbon fiber reinforcement rods and spoke wheel truss rod adjustment keep the neck where you want it. The Ernie Ball compensated nut is cut to allow for perfect intonation all the way up and down the fretboard. And the swamp ash body with maple top delivers plenty of cut and low-end power.

Sleek, fast, and stable

The neck of the KM-7 MK-II begs for you to play fast. Its ultra-thin profile stays out of the way as your fingers cruise across the ebony fretboard, and it's quickly becoming a favorite among Sweetwater guitarists. The compound radius offers comfortable chording and wide bending without inhibiting your playing. The beveled top of the MK-II model is comfortable under your arm. And the Hipshot hardtail bridge's low profile provides excellent control during speed picking.

A powerful tone

The swamp ash body wings and maple top are a potent combination for fast attack and note clarity, especially when using a lot of gain in your signal. The 26.5" scale length also helps, making sure you hear a strong fundamental whether playing in standard or drop tunings. The pairing of Seymour Duncan Sentient and Nazgul passive humbuckers are a favorite of Merrow's for their mix of clarity and aggressive punch. And a push-pull pot extends your sonic range with single-coil tones.

Simply the best 7 string at this price point you can buy

I purchased this guitar at Gearfest, after doing extensive research for a guitar to replace my Jackson DK-7Q. I wanted an extended scale guitar with a hard tail for more modern playing style, The spec sheet for this price point is outstanding- stainless steel frets, beveled top, Nazgul/Sentient pickup set, hipshot hardware (yes, the locking tuners are made by hipshot as well). The neck is super thin (thinner than my Jackson) and is an oil finish (not satinized, hich was important to me). Even dirty the pickups are articulate. I was suprised by the great clean tones I get as well (playing through an Engl Ironball)
Music background: Retired (due to medical consition- semi pro bassist of 30 years

Great axe

I have one, and it sounds and feels great. Stays in tune well, and is punishing on tone. My first 7 string, and I'm so glad I traded my KM-6 for it.
