    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Keith Merrow KM-6 MK-II Electric Guitar:

    I have a Line 6 Variax guitar which is fine but with a Floyd Rose tremolo it takes some work changing strings. i use a block on that but I want a hard tail bridge guitar and one that would look great along side of the JTV. This Schecter KM-6 MK II fit the bill. Its natural grain front and back, with black hardware make it stand out. Everything from the pickups to the locking tuners to the shape was designed by Keith Merrow and he did an outstanding job. It was ready to play out of the box except for tuning. The only thing I have a question about is how to adjust the Hipshot bridge action height if it is ever needed (which it may not be needed)? The screws are very small and no wrenches were included. May be hex type but hard to tell.

    With the five piece carbon fiber reinforced neck, it should stay solid. I would not hesitate to buy this again, a great guitar!
