6IN - Pointed Straight 6 Inline Headstock

Postby Spiritus » Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:13 pm

I haven't been on this board in quite some time. Anyone know where I might find a pic of a DC127 and/or Bolt Classic with the Pointed Straight 6 Inline Headstock (option '6IN')? Until tonight, I didn't know Kiesel offered such a headstock.

Where'd you find this pic? I just checked the Guitars in Stock and didn't see it there.

I literally just googled "kiesel 6in bolt" and it was one of the results. :)

It actually WAS an in-stock at some point, but it's been sold:

Yeah, I had rather hoped Carvin/Kiesel would do something a bit different with the headstock for the DC127/135 and Bolt (not that the original looked bad). I didn't realize they had until stumbling across a photo of a reverse one in a gallery.

And I just now find in the DC600 gallery a number of guitars that look like DC127s with 6IN headstocks. I also see that the DC127 isn't listed immediately below the Bolt like it was just what, yesterday? Is Kiesel discontinuing that model in lieu of the DC600 having a bevel option though there's a link to the DC127 under the MORE INFORMATION tab for the DC600?

I wouldn't be surprised if someday soon that the dc127 went away, but today is not that day. Instead of giving it its own listing, down by the bolt as a separate classic DC line, it is now listed as one of the options under the regular DC line, I believe just to the right of the multiscale 8 string.

It's the one that's a pretty blatant ripoff of the Dean design.

I mean, sure, but all headstocks are more or less derivative of either fender or gibson at some point.

I can't believe kiesel ripped off steinberger and strandberg for their Vader headstock.

No, it isn't. The tuner edge of the Kiesel has an arch (that I personally don't care for) and the "shoulders" (the parts that would make contact with a hanger) are more symmetrical on the Kiesel design. Just like the 1992 pointy — the one they really should bring back — is not a rip-off of the Ibanez shape.

Eh, still a little different. Also slightly similar to B.C. Rich's Gunslinger headstock.

Look for my thread around December 2016. Beautiful CR Bolt with that headstock. I don't post pics here anymore since you have to reference an external URL and can't embed them anymore.
