    The sort of blah figuring might
    Don’t have it yet so can’t say when the end will be...

    Ordered last May. Was told a number of inaccurate completion dates. Last was told it would ship to the dealer “around” today. Hopefully that happens.

    That was me and what Schecter themselves sent still had issues so it's pointless really. Just return and exchange or refund.

    Man, I remember that lol. I do not mean to laugh at your expense and apologize. I can only imagine the heartache you had to go through. That thread killed all the KM gas that I had. (was recently considering the standard but nah)

    I know any guitar can have flaws, especially from WMI on a new "hot item" guitar but damn, What was it 3 in a row? That is just unacceptable.

    Actually, it is now 4 in a row. I just bought another new one. Same main issue but no other annoying issues (like the bridge being scratched to bits). I got this one for $1299 new and it has the least chipping out of all that I've owned so I'm keeping it and just going to make the best of it.

    Oh yeah btw guys, I bought another KM-7 MK-3. :lol:
    This time I went for the black one. I got tired of the blue and purple burst and having a different color helps me forgot about the absolute crap I went through on the first 3 MK-IIIs I got.

    TBH that is pretty fair. You got a B stock for $400 off. Kind of a steal.

    So yeah, PSA: The MK-IIIs are still coming out imperfect.

    Check my previous post. I have already received it and as mentioned it had the chipping issue. Minimal this time though so I'm just going to keep it. Like Jacksonluvr636 said, I basically got a B-stock for $400 off. Which is what I would have accepted the first time around but it was never offered.

    I really wanted another KM-7 series and I have a black MK-II, two natural MK-IIs, and a lambo orange MK-I. I ran out of color options so when I saw this come up and decided to roll the dice. I still have yet to find a guitar that just feels like me as much as these do. That includes my custom Roehrs, my Kiesel, and something else I'm about to do a NGD for. I also have something else on the way that might fulfill the need for something higher end with close to the same feel but it won't be done for a couple more months.

    I’ll do a proper NGD (in the right sub forum) once I get some more time with it and better pics.

    It’s magnificent.

    I posted in the Ibanez 2019 thread about going to Guitar Center to check out new models. I did the same with Schecter. I played a lot of guitars yesterday but the series that really caught me off guard were the Schecter Reapers. I'll admit it, I'm a total snob when it comes to Indo made guitars. With that said, the Reapers were fantastic! Frets were slightly sharp, but with a bit of fret knowledge, it would be easily fixable. Honestly, after playing those Reapers, I'm fairly confident I'll be buying a KM7 MKIII standard. The fret edges were slightly rolled and that ultra thin c (like usual) was just so comfy. Aboslultey blew the Ibanez Axion Labels out of the water. The finish also wasn't too bad either. The tops were surprisingly nice looking, at least, if you like burls. I can take them or leave them.

    It is unfortunate that I’m suddenly disappointed with my other guitars.

    This thing is so damn cool. It's the perfect strat. I need one badly. This year's model is a nitro finish too and it just so happens to be my favorite strat color. And that wenge/ebony combo will never get old. Bonus points for knob layout, and of course the custom shop pickups. While it does have typical layout face dots, the silver rings are much more appealing to me than the regular fender style inlays.

    I have the same model in the green finish and it's by far the best guitar and my most favorite guitar I've ever owned. The Wenge neck is almost "soft" feeling, and you can play on it effortlessly. The two-knob layout is perfect too. My ONLY gripe is that the bridge pup is a little too hot for my tastes for leads (when I'm doing heavier stuff), but rhythm, on point and the neck pup for leads is silky. The 4th position is my favorite of all though.

    NJ set sounds quite modern IIRC right?
