Decided to dive head first into the Carvin/Kiesel custom shop bandwagon. A buddy of mine kept hounding me about trying out their guitars, that I might be surprised at how good they are. For a long time I thought they were just plain ugly. No offense to the 727 owners out there, I just don't like rounded edges.
So I ordered up a DC700 as my first. I was a bit aprehensive about the necks being to fat so I opted for the "thinner" neck option. Here are the rest of the specs....
5-piece maple/mahogany neck
spalted maple top
Original Floyd Rose
Kiesel lithium pickups
stainless steel med/jumbo frets
3-way toggle w/single vol
Pretty simple build and that's what I was aiming for. I'm so tired of blade switches I couldn't bear to have another on a guitar. What I'm most impressed with are the pickups. The low end is tight like a BKP and the high end reminds me of an evo 7. Will pretty much cut through anything. Been playing it a lot as my fingers are sore as hell. Then neck is very comfy, like the fatter wizzard 7's that you find nowadays.
