This item is a “B-Stock”  directly from the manufacturer. It is NEW Stock that has never been owned. Pictures are of the actual guitar you will receive.

A “B-Stock”  is a guitar that won't have structural or playability issues, but could possibly have some particular minor cosmetic flaw which can keep it from passing the rigorous inspection process put in place by the guitar manufacturer. On this guitar we noticed an indent on the body of the guitar. This is difficult to see head on but under the right light conditions is visable. we did our best to take a picture of this area. (see last pictures)

we will have our licensed tech go over the guitar and set it up for you.

Keith Merrow Signature 7-string Electric

Based off of Keith Merrow's USA MKIII Studio model, the Schecter KM-7 MK-III Artist is tailor-made for modern metal. Benefit from exotic looks, along with a robust natural tone and resonance, thanks to a poplar burl-topped swamp ash body. Plug in and enjoy warm, gritty humbucking tones from a duo of Keith Merrow Custom Series Fishman Fluence pickups. This guitar's 9-piece wenge/maple/purple heart neck is stable, fast, and comfortable, while its neck-through construction ensures maximum sustain. The KM-7 MK-III Artist includes an Ernie Ball compensated nut and Hipshot locking tuners for rock-solid intonation.

Poplar burl-topped swamp ash body

The KM-7 MK-III Artist's poplar burl-topped swamp ash body gives it unique style and flavor. These tonewoods sound incredible — experience a balanced blend of brightness and warmth, along with plenty of midrange "pop." Filled wood grain on the poplar burl supplies eye-popping looks and a smooth texture, while the swamp ash is coated with a thin semi-gloss finish that's sure to impress. This guitar's beveled top provides exceptional comfort for hours of playing. Finally, a Hipshot hardtail bridge accentuates the body's natural sustain, while its low profile provides excellent control during speed picking.

Keith Merrow signature humbucker set

Anyone familiar with Keith Merrow knows that he's a tone fanatic. And up until now, he's been a hard-nosed passive pickup devotee. He loves their earthy tone. He revels in the way that a passive pickup responds to his pick attack. Only Fishman's Fluence technology could inject an active pickup with the tone, feel, and dynamics of Keith's favored passive humbuckers, without the technological constraints of traditional designs. Conquering dystopia requires killer tone, and the Schecter KM-7 MK-III Artist's Keith Merrow Custom Series pickups deliver the goods.

A neck meant for metal

The KM-7 MK-III Artist's 9-piece wenge/maple/purple heart neck is a must-feel experience. This beautiful ensemble of woods provides stability for the neck's Ultra Thin KM profile — a favorite feature among players. It stays out of the way as your fingers cruise up and down the KM-7 MK-III Artist'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.
