They haven't made it into the pickup order page yet

https://www.kieselguitars.com/group/kie ... ve-pickups

But my guess is if you give a call they'll send you what you want (if you're looking for them as a set of replacement pups, and not to go into a kiesel build you're putting together now, right?

Just call them up and order. People have them already so they must be available.

That's weird man. JCG got his a couple weeks ago. How long does it take to wind a couple Alnico ll buckers.

Weird. Maybe namm? Delays?

Whenever they launch a new pickup, it seems like it takes forever for then to sell them as parts, even if they are available in builds for weeks/months.

I mean... the single coil lithium are still not available in the web. :lol:

But TT is waiting for his in a build, just like JCG if I'm not mistaken. Am I wrong TT?

Nope, just the pickups. I ordered them the day they came out. I will give them a slight break because it is a 7 string multi. Although I did order a six string set a week later. They are not here either.

So what is the cost of these PUs? How do these Pus differ from the C22J&Bs?

It could be that I AM a burnout lol.

Oh well. I still would advise OP to call, instead of waiting for them to show up on the site. Because truth: He may be waiting for a while if he does wait for the online ordering to get implemented.

And I too really like Alnico II humbuckers, 3 of my 6 guitars are Alnico II humbuckers, 2 of them between 40 and 50 years old. The high 3 strings in particular seem to ring freer and seem to be subject to really broad dynamics, esp when riding light fuzz, just on the edge of breaking up and using your volume knob. We've all heard that technique w the volume knob and tone pot. Alnico V is also spectacular with this too (See the demo of the Carr Merc V that I put up late last nite, and that was the old M22N and the '14 22SD, both of which are Alnico V), but I love the way the high strings move in and out of distortion, and just sustain forever, esp w a really responsive amp.

I'd chalk it up to the lower mag pull on the strings from Al II giving them a little more freedom to move around.

It's one of the reasons I like those 70's Hagstrom humbuckers so much: they're A-II, but they're wound really nicely, and they're not wimpy at all in terms of volume (the DC resistance usually at about 8.2k). They remind me a lot of Mark's M22's, especially the neck pup 22N.

So I'm going to ask this question in a more appropriate thread:

Anyone seen any videos of these Beryls in either a Zeus or Osiris where a good rundown of clean and lightly broken up sounds are run thru?

And are Beryllium singles going to be a thing (or are they already)?

If I remember right, the singles are a thing that you can order with a call-in.

This is the only video I've seen with the Berylliums on a headless that i can remember:

Someone on Fb is promising to do a demo of all of the pickup types available. There were different sets and he was going ot pop them in and out of one guitar - taking style requests.
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)
