Plek'd for Supreme Playability and Precise Intonation

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. Plus, we ran this guitar through our Plek machine and replaced the stock nut for supreme playability and amazingly precise intonation. 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.

  • A powerful tone
Sweetwater's Plek upgrade

This Schecter Keith Merrow KM-7 MK-II has been specially tweaked in Sweetwater's very own Plek Pro machine. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Add to that a custom setup, a set of fresh strings, and Sweetwater's extensive 55-point Evaluation, and right out of the box, this Schecter Keith Merrow KM-7 MK-II is bound to be one of the nicest playing guitars you ever pick up.

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. 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.

Very sweet

This guitar is a metal player's dream, especially when it's Plek'd. Smooth playing, fast, great looks, killer PUPs, great bridge. Push/pull knob is a nice addition and there are a lot of tones. Most of all the nut is amazing in keeping this thing where it should be tuned wise. Great guitar, not disappointed one bit.
