Kiesel direct mount pickups adjustable?

Postby BigMac2304 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 9:29 pm

Hi, just wondering if the direct mount pickups on the Aries A6 is adjustable or fix mounted? So if it is fix mounted we have to do the adjustments with a home made shim?

Also are pickup rings available as an option 50 on the Aries?

On the few direct-mount p/ups I've had (DC747, at least), there is some sort of rubber-like tubing between the p/up base and wood. Acts like a spring.

On my builds there is a spring just like the bezel mounts. No rubber things however. They are just as adjustable as bezel mounts for the most part. You may be able to lower a bezel mount more but at that point it would be too low to be practical.

Okay, I'm relieved to know that it's adjustable. Because not all direct mount pickups are adjustable AFAIK.
