    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Keith Merrow KM-7 MK-II 7-String Electric Guitar:

    The Nazgul doesn't have a bunch of muddy low-end which is perfect for recording or playing live, when you toggle to the middle position and use the coil-tap you get a very huge Strat tone but more rounded and balanced. Great for cleans and a nice alternative "djent" tone. The Sentient Neck pickup is very smooth and surprisingly responsive for a passive pickup, but then again Seymour Duncan never disappoints. I was always told "Active pickups, mahogany body are key essentials for metal".....very wrong, swamp ash and passive electronics are perfect for it. I've tried all sorts of active EMG's and even Bare Knuckle Pickups with Mahogany, just never works for me.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Keith Merrow KM-7 MK-II 7-String Electric Guitar:

        I wanted this guitar for a while. It has great specs. It was delivered yesterday and right out of the box I noticed the craftsmanship is not on par with its price. There's tool chatter on the fret board and a loose spring in the bridge. Some finish blemishes. The low B string buzzes somewhere on the guitar I have yet to figure out. It's not fret buzz. The nut also has some tooling marks and is a tad smaller than the width of the fingerboard. The pick-up routing isn't the best. Looking down at the bridge the routing holes for the string through are not aligned. Worst of all is I couldn't get the action as low as I like, so I used my fret rocker and the guitar has uneven/high frets all over the fret board. I'd expect this on a $250 guitar or a used guitar, but not on a brand new $1,000+ guitar.
