Now I don’t know about you but I’m totally confused about the whole Carvin/Kiesel thing and this new signature guitar for the amazing Greg Howe further confuses the issue in my opinion. According to Jeff Kiesel all custom Carvin guitars will now have the Kiesel logo on the headstock and he has personally worked with Greg Howe on the his new signature model and yet Carvin is the logo on the headstock?!
Anyway aside from the name confusion the guitar will be available from February 1st and it is a sweet looking 24 fret, bolt-on superstrat with a chambered Alder body, Birds Eye Maple fret board with a 20″ radius and comes in a California burst flame top. The guitar will feature a Kiesel Greg Howe signature humbucker in the bridge and the Carvin twin blade pickup in the neck position.
Skip to 1:26 to see Jeff Kiesel talk about the new Greg Howe signature model, or just watch the whole vid to see the Jason Becker tribute guitar:
For more info there are a few places to follow, first up it makes most sense to go to http://www.greghowe.com/, you could also try Carvin’s website and you could try Kiesel Guitars facebook page, I’m sure one of those will eventually settle the confusion.
