Picking up a Keith Merrow Mk-III Artist tomorrow AM - pretty amped about it.
I also ordered one (left handed) hope it lives up to the expectations!.
What do you think of the guitar so far?
Loving it. The pickups are great and it plays super fast. Definitely a metal/shredder guitar. The pickups are pretty hot for Logic's onboard patches, though, so it might not replace my Schecter ATX-7 for recording rhythms.
Sometimes the string itself can just be a lemon too, if none of those solutions worked.
When I got one of my guitars plek'd, the tech dipped into both sets of strings that he recommends bringing for the process, intonated everything, and still couldn't get the 5th string to intonate properly, despite the saddle and everything else being in place.
Really want to grab one of these import MKIII's, I played my buddy's and I was seriously impressed with how well put together it was. Been looking for a hardtail 7 string too so it would work out pretty well. I saw those B Stocks on reverb, has anyone bought a B Stock schecter? I know a few dealers sell a lot of them.
I bought a B-Stock Blackjack SLS 7 string a few years ago, and that served me well for a good while, and I was able to get the action really, really low on it. It did have some cosmetic blemishes, but I went into buying it with that in mind. But for the MKIII artists specifically, I'd assume they're a lot of the returns with fretboard flaking and whatnot.
Merrow - Desolate Horizons (Feat. Krimh and Vogg)
^ Liked it but I thought it was missing some Loomis type shredding, Vogg's (1st time I hear of him, sorry) playing did not do it for me. Amazing drummer though!
I may be just wanting another Conjuring Dystopia album that bad, lol.
Ever hear of the band Decapitated? Vogg is the main guitarist for them, he fuckin shreds.
Does Vogg use a feedback pedal or something? It sounds a bit ... unusual ? at times but I can't tell what it is.
Sounds like a whammy, mostly lightly used but in the end he kicks it in more. With delay and maybe touch of reverb it makes really eerie sounding tone.
I hope I didn't offend any Vogg fans, just didn't like his playing on this particular song.
fair enough, but really you should check out decapitated, vogg has some killer solos and the riffage on their albums in general is uber tasty.
I think Vogg was more concerned with music overall than trying to play something difficult, he's a great guitar player though. Keith Merrow could value a little more bass in his songs, as Alex Webter did in the album Conquering Dystopia.
That song didn't really hook me
6-string version spotted of the MK-III
I dig the song since its different than the rest of his compositions, but overall it sounded like a less technical Alluvial song.
Still solid though.
Forgive me if this was discussed. It has been a minute since I have been here and there are 231 pages. I read the last few pages and didn't see anything.
Has anyone got the KM7 mk-iii standard? Looks like a fair price but how does it compare to the artist? I can see the differences with neck wood, pickups and bolt on. Country of origin doesn't matter to me as I have seen some crappy work from the artist but I am looking for a comparison to see if it worth it.
DCGL just announced the new MK3 Standards are arriving this week and are only $899! Honestly I might consider one as a mod project.
dammit I really want that km3 with the predator inlays, but I have a feeling I'd end up refinishing it because the grey is hella boring. Slime green would have fit the predator motif so much better imo.
