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

      Buying this product was nothing short of a disappointment. When I opened the box the first thing I noticed was the excessive glue residue around the nut, which was immediately complimented by the cut in the nut for the 7th string not being large enough. The next issue I noticed was there were scuffs all over the neck pick up in addition to the toggle switch and the push/pull pot felt like it was grinding whenever I would push or pull it. Additionally, the plastic tab attached to the top of the strings on the guitar said "Premium Ernie Ball strings" and the high E string snapped the first time I tuned the guitar. I think the most disappointing thing about this guitar is that it would not stay in tune to save its life. I tuned it 13 times in the first hour of playing it and I am not sure if this is just a reflection of the poor quality of Schecter locking tuners in general or if whoever let this guitar out of the factory decided that it didn't matter enough to fix. The fret filing was significantly sloppier than fret filing I've seen on Schecter guitars costing around $300. Needless to say this was beyond a terrible experience and I honestly can't believe that a company would charge so much for an instrument that was so significantly sub par not only compared to other guitars in its price range, but to other Schecter guitars that cost a third of the price. This is the first time I've spent this much money on a guitar and now it is clear to me that I should have gone with another brand.
