Yeah, I am a photobucket-head too. Ads? ... Not even ads ...
That 1 big screen-blocker they throw up with those pix that look like
a butt (or crotch) shot - but its an elbow, poop - but its really a spud,
something that looks like a smoking-gives-you-cancer ad - but its ...
some other natural thing??? Disgusting things really.
(A browser refresh usually gets you back to the pic you were viewing.)
I know its free (and I'll never pay for it), but, just, why?!?!?! (right?)


Yeah photobucket sucks all right ---- sorry again for the original version of this post thru them. As for the Aries I love that it is such a versatile model. This is imo Kiesel's best guitar and they have really perfected the variations of it over the last couple years. The bevel feels fantastic and fits right into the solid color scheme. Thanks wicked!!

Thanks buddy!! Yeah the neck & fretboard woods really compliment each other imo. All of my other builds have stark contrast there but this time I wanted more uniformity between the two, and I think this does that. For me at least! :D :D

Walnut looks so good tung oiled.

Raw tone finish is so strange. I've seen it totally matte. Then slightly see through. and now semi-gloss?

Thanks Tube! I didn't have great lighting the day I took these pics but I can assure you it is all matte in person (with ridges on the grain). And totally worth getting if you're considering RTF!

Thanks Ion!! I am very happy with it. The white RTF just gives it a warm rustic look that for me seems to come through best on lighter colors.

Holy cow, Bovine! Was searching the BBS for "one-piece walnut necks" and stumbled across this thread. What a wonderfully conceived build. Your review of the bevel is VERY appreciated also.

Belated congratulations, good man. And Happy Thanksgiving ...

Thanks Greg!! I should really try and do some better pics of it, including the back of the neck. I highly recommend it and it is exactly as Jeff describes "smoothest neck wood ever"

Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you buddy!!

Classy. Were you going for anything in particular tone-wise in opting for a walnut neck and/or Ziricote fingerboard? The colors of the two blend nicely together. Nice contrast against the body too.

Thanks so much Spiritus! Contrast & Class are exactly what drove this build idea and I picked ziricote because I thought the swirls would best compliment the grain of the white ash. The walnut neck choice was to further embed the dark wood theme when looking down at the fretboard. I just really like that. Especially with the MOP diamonds popping out. It's been a year now and this guitar has become my favorite 6 string, and my 2nd favorite Kiesel!
