(PRESS RELEASE): Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop is excited to team up with noted bassist Roy Vogt to offer the Roy Vogt RV69K 6-string signature bass, part of the Vanquish Series bolt-neck basses.
Roy has been playing Custom Shop basses for a number of years, and has worked with an amazing list of artists, including Larry Coryell, Victor Wooten, Tom Scott and the LA Express, Chester Thompson, Glenn Campbell, BJ Thomas, Chet Atkins, Englebert Humperdink, Dickey Betts, Charlie Daniels, Jerry Reed and many others, and we are excited to work with him on the development of his new signature instrument.
Like all Custom Shop guitars and basses, the RV69K is made in the USA, and is loaded with features generally only found in high-end instruments. Standard features include an alder body, 4A flamed maple top with matching headstock, 5-piece maple/walnut neck with tung-oil finish, and dual SCP split-coil pickups. New 18V active/passive electronics include a master volume/push-pull active switch, pickup blend, stacked concentric bass/treble, and stacked concentric mid with sweep. The new pickup blend circuitry eliminates volume drop-off when the pickups are blended for more consistent sound when playing.
The Roy Vogt Signature RV69K is our first bass to carry the Kiesel badge. It's a boutique instrument, however, because we sell direct to you, you don't have to pay a boutique price for your new Custom Shop bass. With hundreds of options available, you can build your V69K exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of an instrument that will last you a lifetime.
