    No, you can have them purchase a guitar on your behalf. Just read the custom program details. $50 flat fee for them to ship to you.
    https://www.evertune.com/shop/installation_program.php

    There reason why I won't sell my current guitars and repurchase is because of that resale loss (and seller fees). It would've been cheaper for me to buy them from EverTune outright though.

    Enough about EverTune though. It's not really relevant at this point and people are arguing without knowing what they're talking about because they won't research it themselves.

    Not sure what exactly you are trying to say here, what you posted shows its 275 to get it put into a guitar you already own "obviously not counting shipping" and then getting a new guitar with it installed is $325.

    Obviously shipping costs would alter the actual cost of sending in your guitar... but yeah.

    Yeah, $275 to get it put in, and then $355 for the bridge you're having put in. :lol:
    Please, just finish reading the details on their website.

    For a 7-string guitar that you send in, it would be $355 for the bridge plus $275 for installation plus the shipping you pay to get it to them (about $50 maybe?). Total = $680.
    For a 7-string guitar you purchase through them, it would be just $355 plus $50 for shipping (price of the guitar excluded of course) to get it delivered from them. Total = $405.
    I'd rather pay $405 than $680.

    I'm trying to clear this whole confusion up because their Custom Installation Program is absolutely the best deal out there. I'd hate for people to disregard it because someone was spreading misinformation. You have to buy the bridge from their website to get it in the first place (unless you find one second-hand, which I've yet toever see) so what makes it awesome is that I don't have to find a guitar shop that I hope knows what their doing with EverTune bridges AND I don't have to pay them an extortionate fee for having it installed.

    Wow sorry I somehow had such a giant reading comprehension fail, not sure how I missed the point by that much, sorry for being obtuse.

    Seems weird to make it so much more expensive to modify someones instrument, seems prohibitive to them getting the bridge out there to more people.

    Anyways sorry again for misunderstanding.

    The whole time here I was thinking it was ONLY $325 to send them your guitar and have them install it as well. So you’re not alone.

    Yup. I thought LeviathanKiller was tripping. Turns out he's the only one with proper reading comprehension

    After drooling over this thread, I just snagged a KM7 MK-II 2016 (black) for $850 on Reverb. The seller is in my area, so I'm picking it up tomorrow morning! Super excited!

    Hoping I'll like this enough to replace my Ibanez 1527. I love the neck on that thing, but I'm tired of messing around with floyd rose setups.

    So...I think I actually just bought a KM7 from Jeff Loomis himself.

    I don't want to divulge too much detail, out of respect for Jeff, but I have sufficient evidence to believe that I'm about to meet Jeff Loomis this morning to pick up my KM7...

    I'll post again later today to confirm. I'm picking up the guitar at 10:30am PST.

    *mind blown*:shawn:

    haha good luck on everything!
    Maybe you can ask if he is still with Schecter, lol

    On a serious note, if it is Jeff, find out if hes got any of his signature 7 string guitars for sale with a fixed hipshot?

    Holy shit, I just bought a guitar from Jeff Loomis! I was gonna ask him for a photo or something, but I was really nervous and totally forgot. Really nice guy, though!

    I didn't ask him about the hipshot bridge, but he confirmed that he's no longer with Schecter. He is a "free agent" as he put it.

    Also, the KM7 is amazing! I already love this guitar. Jeff gave me a good deal on it too.

    I can't believe that just happened...

    Now the mystery about Loomis gets even more intriguing. Who was the jackass?

    You're good man haha

    Yeah, they're honestly not suuuuper clear about it. Poor website design / word placement.

    :lol:




    Lucky you didn't just give him the money, shake his hand, and forget to take the guitar. haha

    LOL

    At one point he said, "Yeah, I got this guitar from my friend Keith." As if Keith was just some random guy. I thought that was pretty funny.
