Is that a fretboard binding, or it's just really dark colored Kiesel-treated BEM?
I'm not sure about Binding, but I did get a double black BEM Treated Board. Absolutely glad I chose that.
Not a binding then, just natural sides of the fretboard... looks killer!
Yeah I think so! I thought it was binding for a while since it looks almost squared off but either way I'm very satisfied with the final product
It was so cool with the process for the group run, they told us we couldn't change out specs after a certain date but they gave us upgrades for Piezo if we wanted it. And then the option to change from Gloss to Satin and vice versa, I went to Satin just because of my recent gear being similar
Are there new carvin 7s coming out soon? I thought I saw something on this recently..... baritone scales and compound boards.
.... I wish my DC700 had Piezo. Is there a way to retro fit? Probably not as it requires a second input?
As far as I know they already have baritone 7's, BUT a compound radius would be a lovely addition to the builder
I thought I saw a funny looking 8 string hiding amongst the guitar porn Run in an instagram pic Jeff posted actually... Thought I saw a scooped cut away...
Will find the pic and post it later...
i need a headless 8 string Carvin.
rumors of a 7/8 string headless at namm this year!
has anyone fit covered Dimarzios or Bare knuckles into their Carvin 7 string?
Questioning if I should attempt it or not. Maybe I can take the covers off easily if they don't fit?
Depends on the year i believe, recently carvin widened their pickups routes to make it easier to swap aftermarket pickups. but if its before that then you have to widen them just to fit normal sized pickups.
Heres the instagram pic i was talking about before.
Edit: its an 8 string in this pic, but if its a new feature it could very well carry over to a seven
The guitars in this run are outrageous! Haven't really noticed them until now
Here's a few of the varieties from the run
Once again, mine
And then Kiesel made this for both him and Zack as a part of the run. They look insane.
They all came out fantastic IMO, some of the others haven't been revealed yet like the Cherry Red. But I'm sure it looks badass as well.
Holy Mother of God GAS!!!!
Isn't it a bit weird to brand those as Kiesel custom guitars? Is he really planning to branch out from Carvin that much?
Kind of looks like someone barfed all over the yellow and orange fretboards. Also, the yellow bodied, blue fretboard one looks like my 2 yr old nephew got a hold of crayons and went to town. I love my Carvin's/Carvin related projects? and to each his own, but I just really don't like all the odd figured/painted/triple step fretboard combos they've been doing lately. Seems like a bit much for me and right up there with excessive abalone on the gaudy scale.
That's right. I have the newer D26 routes, but wondering if those fit covered pickups.
I kind of agree with this, but, the baked fretboard treatments are KILLER. I would love to see that on a less busy guitar.
Sooo it looks like they are now offering Graphtech Piezo saddles....
I now NEED a DC700
