I keep my pickups as they come, which is usually lowest under the low E and the G string. (for unwound G).

that's how carvin pickups would come stock, and also how the pole pieces on most "mod ...

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.

So, they are going to go entirely into pedals and other more advanced items? I donít get it.

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

Not really sure what is going on at this point.

Some stuff happened, years ago, due to certain members having an issue with the fact that Kevio became a Carvin and now Kiesel employee, running their website and BBS. Some BS ensued, and so forth.

That's exactly what I don't get. The direct to dealer savings is almost gone. There are other options that honestly are better values for what they are. And of course don't have some ego-maniacs runni ...

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 ...

They stopped caring about the "Legacy Customers". Also with Carvin Audio now defunct, I can see a reason why they would not want to keep using the Carvin name. I mean, the name also came fro ...

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 ...
