An accessible Keith Merrow signature 7-string.

With the common individual in mind, Keith Merrow and Schecter Guitar Research combined forces to deliver high-performance specs and styling like those of his KM-7 MK-III Artist model at an unprecedented price-point, and the Diamond Series KM-7 MK-III Standard is the proud result of those efforts. It all starts with a swamp ash body carved generously around its perimeter to afford maximum ergonomic comfort and easy access to the full span of the 26.5” scale 5-piece laminate roasted maple/hard maple bolt-on neck, reinforced with carbon-fiber rods for durability. Looking into the heart of this beast, one will find it's equipped with a set of Schecter Diamond KM pickups, passive powerhouses voiced by Keith Merrow to provide incredible response and unreal tone perfectly suited to modern metal styles. Further appointments include a Schecter Custom Hardtail bridge, an ebony fingerboard with 24 X-Jumbo frets and aluminum offset circle inlays, Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side dot inlays, and an inset neck plate for a smooth neck-heel transition.


  • Satin-finish solid swamp ash body
  • 26.5"-scale 5-piece, 7-string maple neck with 24-fret ebony fingerboard
  • Dual Schecter Diamond KM humbuckers with coil-split, 3-way pickup selector
