Anyone Else Going To “Hoard” 22 Pole PUPs?

Postby Terry Tibbs » Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:56 am

When ordering my build, I had a really hard time deciding between two sets of pups. Given the announcement on the 22 pups, I went ahead and bought that extra set for a rainy day. I might even throw down on another set just because.

If you guys were to make a zombie apocolypse stash of Carvin (soon to be discontinued) pickups, what would you fill your doomsday basement with?

My top three would be AP11s, M22Ts & C22Bs

Those and on a Bolt or two.

And J99's and J99A's, on a. LB or two (I play bass).

As long time regulars know, I suspect the Bolt and LB will be going away.

I have three sets so I'm good.

I have three M22SD's , Two M22V's and an M22N. They're not going anywhere!

I've got the original 1985 M22N in my guitar, a spare mid Eighties M22N, a 2014 M22SD, and mid Eighties M22SD, so my guitar is pretty well backed up.

I might buy a 22V/T set just for variety, but I don't know what I'd use it in.
Carvin Weaponry:
1985 DC150K (koa) Stereo, M22N/M22SD w/black hardware.
1985 100 Watt X Amp 2 x 12 combo (XV212) upgraded w/ 2 Vintage 30's
...and other gear.

I'm going to work out my c22s this week.
If the mojo isnt there, I'm getting a set of m22s.
Otherwise nope.
There's plenty of pups in the sea.
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

I guess I'm hoarding an M22SD & an M22V, but that's just until I work out the particulars on my latest project. And I'm fairly lazy.

New parts for the 2-poles-per-string pickups are not going to be re-ordered, so when current parts are exhausted, that's it for them.

I already picked up "spare" 2x M22Ts, a C22J and a C22N.
I probably wont order another Kiesel until they announce whatever new K12*s they are brewing up. I would like to try an Alnico5 K12* variety. (What,... you can just buy p/ups and put them in a guitar you already own?? What .. I .. huh? ) :? :lol:

I've got some spare C22Bs and a C22J and a couple of other things. I should order an M22V though. I never have tried one of those.

From what I've read, I just assumed that you've been hoarding 22 pole pickups (C series) since before I joined the forum.

I have a spare M22 N,V,T,SD, plus TBH-60 and AP11 sitting around. If I sell a Carvin, I'm just going to have to take out the original pickups, and slap in some "upgrade," types. Maybe some Duncans so people will think it sounds better than stock.

I got my set! My guitars are covered.

M22SD, S60A, Twin Blade, S22b, S22J, S22T and an AP11.

I love all the pickups but if you held me to the fire I would say the M22SD and AP11 are very killer. But I really do love the S22's I have too.
My Kiesel/Carvin collection: ST300 (M22SD bridge, S60A middle, Twin Blade neck), SCB6 (S22B bridge, S22J neck), Bolt Classic (AP11's in all positions), SH550 (S22T in the neck and bridge), AC375 and CL450. Also a Carvin V3M 50watt head with a Carvin 1x12 cabinet and Fender Jazz Bass.

It was a blast bringing out the Koa Bolt Plus w/ the C22s.
Very different from the M22s but man o man they're still pretty awesome.
Plenty of mojo

Good call!

I'm not hoarding them... they're fine, but I don't really have a use for them.
