    Ernie Ball made a nut and lets other makers use it?

    It's sort of like an Earvana nut. I guess it isn't too surprising since EB makes all kinds of accessories as well. The newer KM's also have them.

    That's super hot! Love the fade, and I own a pair of those pickups, also awesome. Really great specs on that guitar. I have heard Schecter has been a bit spotty on QA, but the ones I own are excellent. One thing I think Schecter has always done a good job of is building guitars with desirable specs. Maybe it's just my personal preference, but when I imagine exactly what I would want in terms of woods and pickups and colors and features, Schecter often has a model that fits just that.

    This is the only Schecter that I have owned, but it is pretty much on par with everything else I have owned from WMI.

    I'll post a ngd. I was looking for something with an ultra small neck and this is insanely small when I picked it up. I'm a lefty so I had to order it but I'll have it next week.

    Intonation is fine, these have Ernie Ball compensated nuts too.

    That's exactly why I asked. Because the MKII has an EBMM Compensated nut which appeared to be too close to the frets in this dudes case. Just trying to get some infos before buying this guitar.

    Maybe it was an issue with that particular guitar. I don’t have experience with any other Schecters and honestly haven’t followed them close enough to hear about any issues with them on the MKIIs. These nuts remind me of the Earvana nuts that used to be on the LTD Deluxes.

    Well I just ordered my replacement/reparation from the german distribotor. Not getting another KM-7 but the SLS Elite C-7 in antique burst. Hope it does not suck.

    Luckly they sent me pictures before sending it out. The product manager said the guitar has waves in the finish, the nut is straight but out of place (!?) and the back has a spot which looks like someone was trying to fill.

    Hard to tell at the angle the picture is taken. The spot on the back looks like epoxy was used to fill and appears pretty small. As long as you can return it, play it and see if you like it. To be honest, your not likely to find an absolute perfect guitar in this price range. That little spot on the back probably isn't something that would bother me on this. I've never gotten an absolutely perfect guitar from WMI, but plenty that played and sounded great for the money.

    Still, for $1,853 you are getting a lot of features. Binding, finish, woods, neck-through, pickups, fret material, fret ends, locking tuners, compensated nut, 7-pc neck, etc. Every piece of this guitar has a premium extra added to what most other guitars have. I am a MIJ Ibanez fanboy, but a guitar in this price range from Ibanez would have none of the features that this guitar has.
