    I bought a more precise contour gauge a few days ago so I will remeasure them and post pics if I get the time

    Okay, so I measured the Kiesel and the MK-III Artist and the MK-III is much more rounded than the Kiesel. The Kiesel is closer to a D shape than the MK-III Artist is for sure. I'll post pics of the gauge later if I can but I've been super busy. My word is about as good as the pics of a contour gauge anyway. It's hard to really get the full idea unless you can see the gauge in person. I really want to get my hands on a MK-III Standard to find out if the profile is different now.

    There's no doubt it's different. If you are saying it's rounder than the Kiesel profile, then I know it's different. My Kiesel is rounder than my KM7, but you are right in that the Kiesel is slightly close to a D shape. It's like in between a round C and a D shape.

    Hi everyone !!!

    I've been following this thread since I got myself a KM6 MKII NATP. I am so happy with this beauty, but it had a volume pot removal because It was so noisy, and I see now the original wiring diagram was not followed by the luthier, because instead of volume, it has a tone (the volume is always at 10, but I can regulate tone with this pot :( so sad) and there is no split anymore either ! split does not do anything, same sound.

    Could you guys please post here the original wiring diagram? I would be so grateful so I can get it totally original :)

    Thanks everyone in advance :)

    Just received my KM7 MKIII Artist in Blue Crimson today. I ordered a B-Stock off of Reverb and couldn't be happier with it. There is a small mark by the bridge that you can see in certain light, but other than that it looks perfect.

    It sounds, feels, and plays great. Absolutely in love with it.

    The ONLY thing I'd like different with my Predator is that the red was brighter on the inlays.

    Congrats man!! I totally love mine. I was considering a B stock but was afraid it would be a trainwreck. Glad it worked out for you.

    So shameless plug I have great shape MK-II 7 string for sale for $625 shipped in the USA in the classifieds if anybody is looking for a good deal on one. This is the 4th one I ever owned and my favorite one,I had. I planned on keeping it, but I lucked into an old Ibanez universe and have to sell something to pay the bill.
