So it's just the MKII that got the Schecter branded Jin Ho tuners?
Aw shit, that's disappointing. Something about the tuners felt off on my model so I picked up a replacement set. Oh well, the new set is the open gear kind so at the least it will look cooler
aaand there it is.
im getting one.
you do know that's the usa specc'd one right? and that it's like 4k usd
With enough ESP/LTDs, KM's and Solars, we can have the complete knife set. I vote the Khukri blade needs to be a headstock next.
let's dispel this fiction once and for all that I don't know what I'm doing.
I know exactly what I'm doing.
lol, i do know its like 4k. it is what it is.
im getting one.
but i prefer bowies or tantos
more power to you then dude. i'd love to get one myself but i'm in the process of paying for 2 other customs.
Actually tempted on this. Not 100% sure how I feel about the burst implementation though
Idk why but that burst pattern with those colors really gives me a Diablo vibe.
That bottom heavy burst is one of the things I like most about it.
So looking at one of the mkiii's myself. Would be trading my 1997 uv777bk for it.
How's the playability and neck compared to an original wizards? I realize it's probably nowhere near as thin - but how does it compare?
I'm not sure if it's a stupid trade, but I've always wanted one and it looks to be in mint condition.
I don't have experience with the wizard necks but the neck was pretty fast playing imo...so long as your hand doesn't catch on the chipping finish.
We want to see the receipt when the purchase happens
I can't really answer your question other than FWIW my Ibanez 1527 seems about as thin as the my KM-7I and the 1527 reminds me of the late model (non premium ) universes I played. But that was a long time ago.
But my ibanez and shecter they are completely different feelings with the neck carve, radius, scale, larger frets on the schecter, and I believe the MKIII has a slightly different carve as well than older models so I'm not much a help. I'm a huge fan of the KM series ,but if your don't get to try before trading I would pass only because right now they might be similar in value right now, I only see the universe probably going up in price.
lol maybe then you can hook me up with a bunch of schecter swag mr. schecter rep.
how hard would it be to acquire one in Mexico city? i don't see any local dealers ill probably have to order it from the states and ship it.
edit: i just realized my account still says i live in korea, gotta get that changed.
I understand. Don't necessarily need a wizard clone, and sometimes the neck is tough to play anyways.
I realize Universes are probably a bit more collectible, but it's not like I have one of the rare ones. I do kick myself trading a green dot away..
Anyways already committed to the trade, so next week I'll find out. From the pics and what seller has told me, the neck is not flaking.
I traded for one and despite the known issues, I don't regret it. Truly plays like a dream.
I do have some cracking in the neck binding in a few spots but it isn't chipping as of yet. The seller claimed they happened in shipping, and perhaps he is right. Hopefully yours holds up in transit
Yeah, I saw a tiny bit of that starting to happen on mine around time where the temperature dropped significantly. I decided to be a mad lad and just lick my thumb and rub it on those spots, and that seemed to do the trick. Might not be the best way to remedy it, especially if it isn't yours or if it's more than just a dot near a couple frets, but that worked on for my very small scale case of it. My guess is that it happens with any fretboard changes, because I also noticed some small cracks in the ebony (that's fine though, because that's just what some of the more raw ebony does and doesn't affect playability or anything).
What's up everyone
I just posted my signed and number km-7 on reverb.com if anyone's interested. This one's #9 of 20
The headstock color has faded some due to me being dumb and having it on my guitar rack where sunlight shined on the headstock certain parts of the day. Aside from that it's in great condition.
