First Custom Ever!

Postby Shhpink » Sat Oct 17, 2020 10:28 pm

Order will be 18 weeks in come Monday. I meant to make this post when I ordered but I have a feeling I'll be waiting a bit yet.

This is my first neck-thru and Kiesel - I might've gone a little crazy, but I really only plan on getting one of these. At least that's what I keep telling myself... and the old lady 8)

I always found it funny how many people I read on here having more than 1 guitar being built at a time but I totally get it now. THE WAIT IS TORTURE.

Anyways:

I got the top from a pick your top on instagram - its a figured walnut beast of a hunk-a-wood.

That sounds awesome! Do you have a pic of the walnut? Walnut's my #1 favorite.

Yeah, the waiting's the hardest part. I don't know how people do it with some makers like Daemoness who I've read on other forums where they paid their deposit like 3+ years ago, and they haven't even made it to the actual production queue yet. :shock:

Did I miss it somewhere in the specs? I see "pick your top" but no idea what the top is! :lol: Nevermind, I see you went walnut. It's bad juju to post specs of a special top like that and not post a photo.
