    Not even a Schecter fan, but I'm overwhelmed with copious amounts of GAS...

    Beat me to this by a minute, I'm very, very intrigued by this thing, looks to be extended scale judging from pickup-bridge distance.

    I'm betting, like 95% of Schecter 7-strings, it'll be 26.5'' or more.

    Hopefully Keith can give us some specs. On his Facebook page, he said it has the SLS neck profile, which is like a slightly rounder Wizard neck.
    Also, I wish Duncan did more white pickups. Would look a lot like his BRJ, which I loooove.

    I'm definitely going to get this as my first 7 string but I really hope that he comes out with a six string version too. I'd have both.

    Well yes I know that :lol:

    Though I'm pretty sure the production version will have one.

    So now everyone on this forum loves Schecter:lol:

    Looks awesome. Specs are(Some are guessed knowing Schecters usual options):
    Pegasus or Nazgul bridge /Sentient neck set
    Flame Maple top, Mahogany body, Set maple neck, Ebony Board
    26.5 scale
    Hipshot Bridge
    Satin Neck with SLS profile
    One Volume, 3 Way Switch
    Schecter Locking Tuners


    Modified Sunset from the looks of it.

    Reverse headstock is a neat touch!

    Like I said in the first post, I'd say it's a Maus, which is a C-7 with sharper, deepe horns.

    Although the horns look a bit rounder on the KM-7.

    I never thought I'd want to give Schecter my money... until now.
    Well played.

    White pickups would be awesome, but SD charges a LOT more for those since they are considered "Custom Shop"...
