The A60's are great pickups, comparing them to EMG's they are a lot smoother - not as much gain but right up there, I like them better, just a really nice full sound...but don't get me wrong, crank it up and they get NASTY!!! :twisted:
do they have any dynamics to them? Emg's (exept for the 57/66's) can be a little one dimentional, do they clean up o.k.? Do they react differently by how hard or soft you pick? Thanks for the imput, I was a little nervous getting them but I wanted a clearer hi-gain signal & was hoping I could get a decent med & low gain signal as well

They really clean up nice and clean and do react to your pick attack, I'm very happy with them and I was nervous about them a little also but again I'm glad that I did! I hope I can ease your mind a little and can't wait to see your Nightburst!

So it's my birthday next Monday and I was browsing the 'ole eBay this weekend. Pretty sure I found the exact DC600 that was in the Guitars In stock in 2014/2015? and talked about in this thread: http://www.kieselguitarsbbs.com/viewtop ... sc&start=0

She was way too sexy so I pulled the trigger, couldn't let anyone else grab it :lol: . I'm like 98% sure it's the same guitar as the one in that thread. I was comparing unique features in the Ash top and the backside of the maple, everything seems to match up.

Compare the Carvin pics to the eBay pics. That brown dot in the maple under the string holes seems to match and so do some of the features in the Ash top. Also notice that round part on the bottom right backside of the Limba? :think:

Paid asking price, didn't want to risk someone else grabbing it first. You're the person who started the thread on that guitar first :lol: .

Guitar arrived last night. The previous owner must not of known how to string with locking tuners? :lol: I was taught you don't need multiple wraps with locking tuners, maybe half a wrap, or am i wrong?

Anyways guitar is very nice, love the way it plays even with the old dirty strings on it. Not a fan of gloss necks but I can live with it. The neck is thinner than the one on the CT4T I picked up from someone on this forum.

Regarding the Kiesel Treated board, it seems very dirty and/or faded/dark. What do you guys recommend for cleaning it up and making her shine? Rub it down with some lemon oil?

I am in, folks. This is my 2nd Kiesel. My first one was an ST300, which I have played the heck out of for the past 1 and a half years. This DC600 is something else however. Let me know what you think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00aGFFebpVs
