If anyone ever wanted a 7 string strat, it looks like Jeff just announced a new strat model called the Del Mar. Comes in a 6 and 7 string.
Of course Kiesel is going to overdo the translucent thing now, but I gotta admit it looks cool too. I’ve seen people asking for 7 string “Strats” on here forever—I could see them selling a lot of these. Even 6s as a cheaper/faster alternative to Fender Custom Shop/Suhr. Seems like a pretty good move.
The clear guitar is not something they are selling. It's just a NAMM show piece to show the inside of their guitars.
That is the first thing I though of as well. Production 7 string Strats with all the usual Kiesel options like SS and whatever else. Could be a hit. I'm paying attention.
Looks really nice, even with the extra frets.
Of course this happens when mostly play 8s now and no mention of 8 string options.
It's insane how many people on the Instagram posts aren't getting this. I guess the 1-3 sentence long captions are too much to read.
Huh kept it classy and didn’t “kiesel” it
This could be a problem!
7-string strat? My prayers have been answered!
I know that, I just think using it to showcase multiple models is overkill after the first one. Unless they’ve done it for all of their models, which would actually be really cool.
Hmm, I’m digging the idea of a 7 string strat. Maybe I can get a pink sparkle version and pretend it’s the Ohmura Snapper sig. I always liked the look of those things.
They seem to be Strats only in profile, and the pickguard. Are single coils going to be an option?
I’m not a Kiesel expert, but it seems like most models are available in most pickup configurations. I can’t imagine they’d do a model like this and have that be an exception. Wouldn’t make sense to do this model at all if it wasn’t available, but it is a little weird that the unveil didn’t use singles. Then again it’s Jeff, so what makes sense to him and what makes sense to most of us are two different things.
Side note: I wonder if there’s a new headstock option to go with this too? I’m not sure which of the current offerings would look very good with it.
Some models are available in a few pickup configurations, and anything not in the builder is typically an upcharge in addition to voiding the warranty.
I don't think they have anything outside of a couple 6-strings available in SSS.
Do they even have 7-string single coils anymore?
Yeah, now that you say it, I guess everything I’m thinking of is a 6. I know I’ve seen some of their headless models in 3-single configuration but not 7s. A lack of single coil options is probably one of the reasons there aren’t more 7-string Strats in the first place.
Kiesel does all pickups in house, so I don't see it being a factor unless they don't want to make them specifically.
I think they still do even 8-string single coils, and I’ve seen SSS 7-string Aries. What is and isn’t option 50 has always been vague to me, particularly as their online builder has some obvious holes (some finish options for example don’t appear for some of the 8-strings, but things like antique ash and rear natural clear just have to be available if you call).
Nothing is on the builder and I wouldn't touch anything OP50.
