The Schecter Keith Merrow KM-7 Electric Guitar is designed to acknowledge the contribution of the solo instrumentalist Keith Merrow to the field of rock music. The ebony fretboard offers a crisp attack and strong fundamental tones. The maple construction of the neck lends tremendous strength to the overall design, as the material is known for its resistance to atmospheric changes. The Seymour Duncan Sentient and Nazgul pickups cover a wide harmonic range and provide a punchy, high-gain sound. The Schecter locking machine heads ensure fast stringing. The Hipshot hardtail bridge with a string-through design provides enhanced sustain. The set-in neck design facilitates convenient transfer of vibrations between the neck and the body.
