Cool/favorite K/C unboxing and demo videos

Postby gumbynotpokey » Thu Dec 24, 2015 6:19 am

Ok, I found this unboxing video on youtube and it sort of says it all - perfect fit and finish and yet ANOTHER arrives in tune. Great to see.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1Z7sgjCT04

Then it hit me - let's start a thread with our favorite K/C unboxing videos and demo videos from the K/C players out there that might or might not be here on the Forums. It's a neat way to compile in one thread what could be helpful to others. Plus, it will be fun.

I put this thread in the Lounge out of respect for the fact that we're putting up instruments not owned by the one putting them up. Mods, feel free to move this, of course, if it fits better in the photo gallery.

Among regulars, Moose and Spud have some classics, that is for sure.

I have one, and it's no longer relevant for this forum. My recent AC375 was delivered while I was away and unboxed by someone else. :laughhard:

Someday I'll get that Bolt w/BBE...think I may need a new computer first...

Great idea for a thread, though! :applause:

THIS IS A GREAT theread topic! And it has been said already, Spud and Mooseboy definitely have my votes as well. Spudmunkey's still makes me laugh whenever I watch it ... where does one get all those huge swords? And demo'ing the footswitch while still being boxed ... classic!

Mooseboy always tests every sound possible at every pickup in clean and dirty ... and with chops and tastes for days. The smile never leaves his face, and why should it? If I had his talent I would be smiling like that as well whenever I picked up a Carvin/Kiesel.

Special mention goes to Coda for the Christmas poem and video!

There was a guy on here who demo'ed his HH ( a creamy/white guitar). This guy was and is an amazing talent of all genres. He played jazz, rock, country, and everything in between. He pulled fender Strat sounds and thick Les Paul sounds out of that guitar but they sounded even better! A fabulous video of what can come from that amazing guitar!

Cheers,
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Here's a great one, showing off the DC 800 and an amazing run-down of options, how to think of a build, etc.

Excellent DC7X video. A review and demo. Very cool explanation of options, overall ordering and choices and more. Well done.

I agree and I bet Jeff Kiesel will have a big smile on his face if he sees this because I feel this guy is the demographic they have been focusing on over the last year or so. Nothing wrong with that at all. I just appreciate the fact you can still custom order almost any guitar they've produced over the last 30 years also.

That guy seems like a dude that I would get along with really really well. Just a chill, genuine guy who made a serious effort.

Turns out he replied to me he is an endorser, knows Jeff, Manny etc and digs K/C to say the least. I told him he should come on the bbs and he would enjoy it.

DUDE... A six minute twenty seven second unboxing video... And over four minutes struggling with the box!! You need an editing suite.

Guitar is really beautiful so the payoff is sweet indeed. I just had to break your cojones on that. :mrgreen:

Hey fellow Carvinites! Thanks for the mentions, dudes… as you can tell, I love my Carvins and making video :mrgreen:

I haven't been around here as much lately, sorry about that. I've been visiting the dark side and buying some different brands of guitars. Still have every single one of my Carvins, love them to death!

good idea for a thread! I'll try & peak online & find some. Here's mine meanwhile... the audio was captured just after opening & taking pics / video, but did tune it. It wasn't in perfect tune out of box (almost though) but it was in perfect intonation.

versatility of the Lithium pickups in an SCB6 demo

a brave soul giving a very wide ranging demo of all the sounds you can get from the Lithium pickups. BRAVO.
