:lol: Carvin calls them input jacks, too! :roll:

Nice BoltV! I also went for the white pickguard, knobs, pups, and switch. 3 S60A's. Mine's emerald green translucent. That KRO rocks.

I like the Vintage trem. Easy to use, does the job.

Well...I suppose it accepts a plug...so it is an input in the physical sense, even though it's a signal output.

Actually, I hadn't thought of it that way before...I might actually stop being a pedant about it. :lol:

I'm just being difficult. Haha. I can agree with both. Input, output... either way I am loving this guitar. Also after hearing some not so positive things about the Carvin pots I must say I'm baffled. Both the volume and tone work fine and sound great. Maybe it's my ears and too many metal concerts but I'm happy with them.

Jeff has said that they have constantly been making little improvements o the guitars, and even mentioned "electronics" in passing once...I wonder if maybe they have a better design now? I never had any complaints with the ones in my 2008 CS6.

That said, the most common comment is that the posts are undersized. This means that many aftermarket knobs don't fit, and also, swapping the pots might mean having to enlarge the holes. Also, that some of these "mini" pots are so close to the control cavity's edges that full-size pots didn't fit.

Your guitar is an inspiration. I think someone needs to do an ash-bodied bolt with AAT and trans orange (no burst). :drool:

The color is great.

But I think the side input jack is waaaaaaaaaay cool!

I know this thread is ancient... but i am wanting to do this on a bolt with the side jack input instead of top mounted. Does anyone know the upcharge on this? Contacted Kiesel facebook and they said i should call but i am not nearly able to order and don't want to waste their time.

Anyone happen to have this information?

It's totally ok to call - don't even hesitate.
It's what the sales guys do. They've always been happy to answer all of my dumb questions.

You could also try to email a sales person directly, or message them on FB (if you are friends with one)
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

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

Yeah I would prefer this as well, I always use L style guitar cable and bring it around from the bottom strap peg and into the jack.
It just seams like the most logical position

Beautiful! Sometimes a simple look is best! I recently received a GH3 with no top wood--just an alder body and sunburst finish--I love it!!

I know it's difficult to compare colors when taken under different lighting and cameras, but is the current KRO the same as it was on the 2015 Bolt in this post (see attachment of current - 10/2017 - guitar)? It looks different to me... Maybe this current pic is over saturated. I saw one in the showroom a few months ago and thought it was rather too bright. Orange is one of my favorite colors, but not so bright as KRO. I think the '15 Bolt looks great.

Looks very similar to me.. I would chalk it up to the old one likely taken on a phone camera, low pixel density... Plus the new one is likely saturated and lit bright.

The actual color is probably in the middle. But they still look pretty similar to me.

I'm looking at it them on my crappy work laptop monitor, and they both look like Road Flare red.

I pulled it up on my work Samsung galaxy S7, and the Bolt definitely looks more like a tomato, and less "fluorescent red".

OK, this is really embarrassing! :oops: The first picture I showed was RED, not KRO although it looks more orange/red on my monitor!

This is a recent KRO from the Gallery. To my eye, it looks more orange than the Bolt in this post. The KRO color just didn't turn me on when I saw it in person. But, it's definitely ORANGE!

A new (10/27/17) posting of KRO from the Kiesel Facebook page. Must be the shade of the week! It looks redder than the one from the Gallery that I posted previously. Maybe it's hard to capture an accurate image.
