I finally received my Lefty CT624 Aquaburst! PICS

Postby smoobg » Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:11 am

My lefty CT624 showed up 2 days ago, just 2 days shy of 3 months (from the day I ordered it). It took 6 days for it to arrive from CA to FL. My first impression was that it was dark for an aquaburst finish. It looked dark green inside, but once I got it outside in better lighting, the aqua came out (somewhat). The craftsmanship is excellent! It looks amazing everywhere. I really like the signature inlays, which give it a unique touch.
The beryllium pickups sound great! They're punchy, have a lot of clarity and definition, even on low, distorted notes. The coil split sounds awesome, and opens up another level of sounds. The cleans are very clean, and they sound great with distortion. I hope to record sound samples soon. You'll see my CT624's older brother in the last pic (Carvin DC-135T Koa). I ordered him 18 years ago... I won't wait that long to order my next Kiesel!
