Nevermind, I got it, sorry for bringing that into the thread. I figured it was a "quote"but that never worked, since I found it now I see it needed your username in the tag to work.

Thanks again. Can't wait for my CT3 , it is gonna be sweet!

And, you go to the post you want to quote, and there is a quote button in the upper right corner. boom.

No, before you start a new post, you find the post toy want to quote. In the upper right corner there's a quote button right next to the exclamation point to report a post. Clicking it will start a new post with the text of that post quoted, tagged to that user.

oops - did not see pg 3 of this thread...

No, there are 2 or 3 usually, on each post (not entire thread). A pencil, if you can edit, "!" to "report this post", and double quotes to - y'know - (reply with) quote.
It just wraps the post with

Code: Select all

[quote="user name"][/quote]

Man , you had a lot of CT's, did you notice a difference between the ct3 and ct4/6? How did you like the Koa one?

Ha, thanks for the work. I was always hitting reply first and trying to find it on the editor where you type. I know some coding and was baffled when the [ quote ] was not working for it.

Got it now I hope :wall:

Yeah, they are my favs - with a 22 fret Bolt or Bolt+ a close 2nd.
Most of them probably have diff p/ups, so its hard to compare. Similar enough in the base chassis I suppose. I tend to have my Platinum Gold CT3M hanging on the wall, and while not my fav looker, I really like the tone. I've been contemplating a satin Pearl Blue CT3M at some point, hence my lament in this thread.
I have a post out on the Carvin Museum with an account of my saga with the Koa CT324K. I didn't find any covered p/ups I liked in it. I couldn't bring myself to go uncovered since it screams for gold-covers IMO. Then I tried the Phat Cats in there now, and they've found a home. I wasn't expecting how much I'd like them in that guitar.

They'd better introduce some new models then. It seems they're going full throttle in the pointier, flashier direction, which I'm not on board with. Also they're getting rid of more and more 25" models in favor of longer scales.

I was eyeing a CT3 but that's gone now. Maybe I'll get a PRS and forget about Kiesel.

yeah, its looking more like Kiesel === headless amoeba / beluga / mega-beveled 24 frets with multi-scale option.
So they got that going for them, which is nice.

:idea: But maybe you can call in the CT3 - for a while?
