Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop is now offering its new Kiesel Passive Lithium Series humbuckers as replacement parts. These are the same pickups that have been used in some of the company’s popular new models, such as the DC800 extended range eight-string guitar and Vader headless six-, seven- and eight-string guitars. Bridge and neck models are available, in six-, seven- and eight-string configurations.

For a limited time you can upgrade your Custom Shop Kiesel or Carvin Guitar to these pickups for no charge. Purchase them online by clicking here, or call 858-GUITARS. Pickup prices range from $89 to $109.

From the press release:

Lithium Series humbucker pickups were made for the demanding modern music, where clarity, focus and articulation is needed. From standard to drop tuning, this series offers great versatility and has an excellent balance between power and clarity. Patented six-point star-headed (also known as Torx) adjustable pole pieces give the proper amount of mass to add the needed focus and get amazing attack. The expensive Alnico V magnets produce a rich, powerful sound with warmth that is not available from less expensive ceramic magnets.

These feature one coil loaded with adjustable pole pieces and the other coil loaded with non-adjustable slugs. Lithium Series pickups feature industry-standard sizing, so these are direct replacements for brands such as Duncan, Dimarzio, Bare Knuckle, and Lundgren.

The standard color is black, but white coils, cream coils and zebra coils (white/black or cream/black) are also available. The six-string versions can also be ordered with black or cream mounting bezels.

Kiesel Guitars and Carvin Guitars has been designing and building pickups since 1946, and the new Lithium Series continues the tradition established almost 70 years ago. The Kiesel pickups were designed in-house and are proudly made in our Southern California Custom Shop. For a limited time, Carvin Guitars is offering these new pickups as a free upgrade in any humbucker-equipped Custom Shop guitar.
