Man this new design is absolutely killer. Might finally have to add a Schecter to my collection.
Idk, I expect an artist to talk about their signature gear. The same way that I’d expect someone I know who sells real estate or cars to occasionally check and see if I need a new home/car. It’s just pragmatic.
Also the peeps who come on this forum tend to have some pretty great signature guitars.
I’m looking forward to seeing a 6 string MIK in a store to try out. That blue/purple burst thing is hot. Love crazy colors.
I ust say, I finally tried a KM 7 II the other day and wow, it was amazing. Shame Im already sold on upcoming guitars I have on the way, if not this new one would be up in my list. Love that purple/blue burst with black hardware/binding. jsut beautiful. I might steal that finish idea if the day comes I would get a custom guitar. Love the finish and how it looks
Are you really basing your guitar purchase on nut material?
All of the EB compensated nuts are graphite anyway. He's just being cautious I think.
Great, thx for pointing out! Of course the material is not a deciding factor, but I have a habit of looking into the minute details. And let's be honest, the nut is an underestimated component of the guitar. I Look forward to trying the EB compensated nut!
UPDATE: Looks like I'll get an ETA for completion by the end of the week. I asked Sweetwater to reach out to Schecter to see of I could have a hand in choosing the top wood or maybe even a few pictures of the build progress.
I reached out to my Sweetwater rep and they told me it would take about 3-4 months. That's way too long of a a wait for me right now, sadly.
Hey Keith, any idea how many of these are going to be made? Are they going to be pretty limited?
I ordered my NJ through Sweetwater and ended up contacting Schecter directly through their facebook because I had a few more questions. They were extremely helpful and even sent build progress pics without me asking for them so you may have better luck removing the middle-man. Everyone at that company I've talked with has been so genuine and ready to roll out the red carpet for a nobody like me--can't recommend that route enough
That's what they told me.initially as well, but now that the order is placed it won't be just an estimate.
Considering these are basically Masterworks builds, that time frame is understandable.
One last question from me regarding the neck's on your sig guitars.
Are the necks on the KM MK1 and MK2 identical?
Thank you kind sir!
I'm a little jealous of people ordering their KM7s now… Hopefully KM6 soon-ish
Yes, same profile and fretboard radius
Thank you very much Kieth!
Really appreciate the replies.
Current MKII with new fishman KM pickups arriving around June.
Keith I have a question: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10155091628812797
In the video, I do not see the second selector (the one for the voicings). Do you know if it's still possible to select the 3 voicings of you signature fishman pickups?
Man I really love the new C1 SLS Elites.... just wish they were a satin finish.
My guess is that they wanted to show what those would look and sound like with his new pickups. Hopefully they've thought of that. Depending on how these sound in demos I might put them in my ZH7B. I'll have to find someone local who I can trust to drill the hole for the extra toggle to make the layout like it is on the US models.
Keith, I was just curious as to how you have these wired. Is the toggle to switch between the voice 1/2 and the push/pull for voice 3? Or is it the opposite of that?
Speaking of the neck, what was your inspiration in going with wenge/purpleheart for the neck laminates?
Guitar looks sick, by the way!
The Fishman MKII guitar uses a push-pull to toggle between the 2 different humbucker voicings for both neck and bridge. It doesn't have the single coil mode. The MKIII has an added toggle so you can have those tones as well as a coil split mode. Adding a toggle to the MKII would get you that 3rd voice.
I've had a few wenge neck 7 string custom guitars in the past with a few different types of stringers in them. I really love the way wenge sounds, feels, and looks. Some builders use it in bass guitar necks a lot because of the way it translates low tones. It works the same way on an ERG. The lows sound really defined. I went with purple heart and maple for the stringers mainly because of the density and stability, but it also just looks super awesome.
