CT624 My first Kiesel

Postby ZooHead » Wed May 09, 2018 6:12 am

I've been looking at Kiesel guitars for a while and I finally bought an in stock California Carve Top.
I love it so much I immediately ordered a custom V6!

Congrats on that real beaut. I love the way the figure of the maple top starts to skew upwards into a chevron, but only on the top where the upper bouts begin.

What kind of pups are on that--Beryls or Lith?

Hah! That's funny, I didn't even look closely at the pickups.. I just automatically assumed that the GIS would automatically be 12 pole buckers.

It's called going blind with 20/20 vision.

Thanks, it's a 7 top. Make PRS 10 tops look like Kiesels standard 4 top.
What would a Kiesel 10 top look like I wonder?
Problem is I have to keep from drooling on it while I play.

Pups are C22s

Yup, although I had no Idea what to expect as I have only read about the lithium and Beryls, they are great.
How would they compare?

Thanks, I think Kiesel Guitars are as good as any guitars made today, and even better because
they aren't overpriced, there made in the USA and not to mention customization.

The only problem was the color looked different on my monitor,
it's a common calibration issue, so I wasn't too surprised.

Agreed. I like that it's a darkback, I think it goes well w this guitar.

It's a great, old school Carvin-style Kiesel.

No one will know who made this until I tell them, it has the
abalone headstock inlay and it gets totally lost in the quilt.

Ya, it's a sickness. They got something special here, they keep you going back
to look, cause you never know what mind blowing finish your going to see.

I know what a Strat looks like, no reason to keep looking at the fender site.

You know, I've had a pile of junk in my music room for two years now.
And now that I need space for more guitars, I cleaned it up in a couple of hours.
