Schecter USA KM7 MKIII – Custom Keith Merrow of Alluvial by John Gaudesi

Keith Merrow of Alluvial:

“Here’s a look at a prototype Schecter USA KM7 MKIII guitar, crafted by master builder John Gaudesi at the Schecter Guitars USA Custom Shop. John is an extremely talented luthier who has created guitars for legends such as Alan Holdsworth and many other players in need of a precise instrument. His attention to detail and engineering skills are just insane. He’s been building guitars his whole life and I’m honored to have worked on this with him. We spent many long days together in the shop trying out different ideas. We’re still experimenting with different finishes and minor things, but this is such a great sounding and playing guitar as it sits. I’m stoked to use this on tour in China this month. Figured I’d share.”
