The pickup is well balanced between the gypsy strings (especially on B string) and this is because we tuned the pickup considering the famous argentine gypsy strings of Savarez, but also works very well and with other gypsy strings. There is a line on top of the pickup that indicates the position of the B string.
Kleio 51 has a nice vintage volume control with 500K log pot and can easily mount either on the tailpiece or on top of the guitar.
The idea of mounting the volume pot on the tailpiece belongs to the guitarist Dmitry Kuptsov, so we named it the “Kuptsov variation”. With the “Kuptsov variation,” you don’t have to stick something on the top of the guitar.
The other solution is to stick a bluetack plastic with velcro on the top of the guitar.
The volume pot bottom plate has a velcro that can mount on the velcro strip of the “Kuptsov variation” or on a plastic piece that we provide you with.
