Have you ever bought one of your old ones back? I JUST DID!

So I sold this one, and instantly regretted it. I am so glad to have found it again and got it! I love it a lot more this time - I put one of my favorite pickup sets in. I forgot how nice it was!

Pretty simple overall - Mahogany body, piezo, "extra streaky" ebony board... and the one really cool bit - solid rosewood neck! SO happy to have this one back.

I'm glad you got it back!

There was one guitar that I sold and then bought back. Not a Kiesel/Carvin though.

And then I gave it to my daughter. What was I thinking?

That's a great combination of woods. . . does that neck have a rosewood fretboard, or is it like a Fender maple neck with no actual fretboard laid on top.. ie the top of the neck just radiused and frets laid right on top like a strat or tele?

It’s actually an ebony board on this one. I think regardless it would’ve been a separate bird because that’s how they load the truss road.
