About This Listing

Kiesel D7X 7-string guitar. #17 of 50 from a Run. Like new condition. Played only a few hours in my smoke-free home. Never gigged with. Nothing wrong with it, I'm just thinning down my collection. Comes with the original Carvin soft case. Free shipping within the continental United States.

If you spec'd out a similar DC today, it would be $2629 plus shipping. Get this beauty. Save yourself hundreds of dollars and 12 to 16 weeks of waiting. :-)

Some interesting things about this guitar

  • This was built in 2014 only months before they changed their brand name to Kiesel.
  • This was the very first guitar run Carvin/Kiesel ever did. Guitar Porn was a Facebook group. One of their admins contacted Jeff and arranged for a run of 7-strings. Someone started calling it a GP7X for fun and the name stuck; however, the true model number is DC7X.
  • Kiesel retired the DC7X moniker a few years back. Now they offer the DC700 model with a 27" scale option. The DC700 model is virtually the same as the DC7X, except the body shape is slightly different. 
  • The pickups on these are Lithium prototypes. Jeff told us we were the first production guitars to get them. We received our guitars and the pickups had round pole-pieces. About a month later, Jeff decided to use hex screws for the Lithium pole pieces. I don't hear a difference between these and my other hex-pole Lithiums. It's just a cool little bit of history.
  • This was the only orange guitar made in the run. Jeff liked it so much he had his guys photograph it a bunch of times.
