I may just ditch my V-T-T control dream, as it might not be possible … unless they did a 3-way blade p/up selector (and push/pull taps on the tones)? :think:

I've heard Jeff say they could do V-T-T on an HH Delos, but I'm not sure if that messes with anything else. I assume it's still a 5-way blade.

I emailed and they said it could be done too, but wasn't sure if that was the sales guy "projecting" the SSS or HSS capability? It would be interesting "how" they do the H-H + V-T-T. :?:

I confess that Stage 1 was very tempting.
Until I came to myself and remembered how many Strat-shaped Carvin/Kiesel guitars I already have. :lol:

The pickguard makes changing pups or adding a knob or switch super easy. I wouldn't bnother having Kiesel do anything special and pay the bucks to do it. Electronics is not their strong suit anyway.

Were I to order one I would make it different from all my others by getting one with a trem.

I think maybe they might run the inside coil (the one that gets split to) as the last one (Ground->Outer Coil->Inner Coil->Hot Out), then running the individual tones between the pickup and switch. It would be in the same place, split or series, like this.

Love the raspberry jam color. Had that been an option, I may have ordered my Zeus in that...though that hot pink is pretty hot.

They have also added flamed maple neck and FB as a Stage 1 option, optional chrome brushed humbucker covers for stage 1, and the option to add strap locks for all stages.

I *believe* it was $300. I don't recall for sure. There's a chance it was $200, but I'm thinking it was $300. Normally that would be $520 to upgrade from plain maple neck and FB to flamed.

Mark (called and left VM)
Nader (called and just rang)
Nicholas (called and left VM)
Dan (called and left VM)
Mike (Chris left a VM)
