hey everyone i have i question... ok two
im going to buy a KE3 soon.... BUT theres two of them
1: crimson swirl ( very good looking ) but made in korea and has duncan designed
2: solid black ( looks boring since my other guitar is black too ) but made in japan and has seymour duncans
can anyone tell me what the difference between the duncan designed and seymour duncans ? and what does it effect to have a guitar made in korea or japan ??
Thanks in advance..

if your willing to sacrifice sound for looks then get the crimson swirl though if not get the black one
I sat next to a nun on the bus once, she said hi

seymour duncans are the proper stuff, duncan designed are good, but not as good
best example i can use is itslyk gibson and epiphone

yes one more thing the crimson swirl has a chrome hardware which from what i saw in reviews are not that good and wear faster than the black hardware on the black kelly....
and i dont care much about the looks, the sound is what matters so that means the black one ??

Yeah the crimson swirl is an earlier model, pre 06 I think. The later ones supposedly have a revised trem in addition to better pickups.

this is the newer revised spec 06/07 model - if you want the crimson swirl on the new ke3 model, order online.

F*ck both. Get Eerie Dess Swirl. That model has JB/Jazz, and looks great.

I'm looking into getting a KE3 too, not sure about the Swirl finishes. I'm thinking of just getting the Trans black version, it's sleek looking and you can see the wood, half the cost of the swirls too.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
