2015 HH2 question - second owner

Postby jmillion » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:24 am

Hi all,

I recently purchased a 2015 Carvin HH2 and I'm trying to determine if it was built with the carbon fiber truss rod(s). I heard this practice started in 2015, but I'm not sure if this was built before the practice was in place. Thanks in advance!

The only way to know for sure is to get the built date from Kiesel, themself. There's no way to tell from the outside, and the serial number isn't like some manufacturers where it's a code that can be translated. They are randomly-assigned (sort of sequential, but sort of not).

Short of calling Kiesel, I suppose you could rip off the fretboard, or take a bandsaw and make a cross-section of the neck (joke said in good-natured jest!). :lol:
