Schecter Guitar Research Announces Keith Merrow KM-6 Signature Model

This model also features the new exclusive Seymour Duncan Blackened Black Winter pickups.

Sun Valley, CA (September 11, 2014) -- Schecter Guitar Research proudly announces the addition of the new Keith Merrow KM-6 signature 6-string guitar. It will be showcased for the first time in a new edition of Schecter Guitars’ "Conquering Rifftopia" webisode IV on schecterguitars.com. Building on the massive success of the prior Keith Merrow 2014 Signature 7-string model, Schecter Guitar Research has decided to respond to the enormous popular demand by producing and releasing a new 6 string version of the much acclaimed KM-7.

“The KM-7 turned out to be the perfect guitar for what I do. It just made sense that we also make it available as a 6-string," says Keith Merrow. The new KM-6 retains the same powerful tone and imposing yet simple looks that were popularized by its 7-string counterpart. This model also features the all new Blackened Black Winter pickups, made by Seymour Duncan exclusively for Schecter Guitars. Straightforward and to the point, with a hipshot 6-hard tail bridge, a single push-pull volume knob and a three-way toggle switch, the KM-6 needs nothing more to prove it is the ultimate shredding machine.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
