Whoa! Did they deepen the channel for the nut? or maybe they made it thicker? Definitely sounds weird. You might want to post this over at the Kiesel forum as well.

The problem is you can buy X100B's for like $300.

Well, for a tube based preamp pedal with a graphic EQ, $250 won't happen unless it's made in China. It's definitely got more features than tube preamp pedals like those from Two notes, and those reta ...

I can hope that this may mean an eventual return of Carvin amplification. Their bass amplifiers and cabinets were great, and I would hate to see the name go away.

I don't think the 25 scale is going away. It just seems that almost all of the new designs are bolt-on, and not set neck. the SCB6, CT6, and CS6 all are still 25 scale, and the SCB6 is definitely a Je ...

I had never heard that rule until someone mentioned it. really stupid, and really indicative of the level of maturity of the PTB at Kiesel Guitars.

Well, going into pedals will make them quite a bit more nimble in the long run.

Now I can have an X-amp that I can run into any type of amp.

Just got an email from Carvin indicating that Carvin Audio was relaunching?

Not really sure what is going on at this point.

What I find funny is that Jeff apparently hates the Gibson SG shape, but half his designs are obsessed with extreme bevels.

Either way, Carvin audio going away is still something I can't wrap my he ...

Still a great post! Carvin may technically be no more, but this place still lives on. Maybe we'll see more traffic here now that people with carvin amplifiers don't really have any alternative.

17 or 17.5mm should be the correct string spacing, unless it's got the optional wide asymmetrical neck, which would then require a 19mm spacing.

Carvin used a slightly modified B-style bridge, as t ...
