The quality of materials and overall craftsmanship is really top notch. The one piece top looks simply incredible. The camera hasn't really caught it but the reddish areas are quite vivid and lava like. I asked for a quite streaky piece of black limba and they've delivered in spades. It's a really nice piece of wood in it's own right and really shimmers when the light catches it.

Needless to say I'm a convert and am already planning number two. I've played high end signature guitars for a lot of years, I have to say playing my own has been long over due.

Thanks guys and gals.

Cheers guys.

Well I came up with a cool idea for the backplate. Particularly as they also sent me the build tag from the factory as well. Did this today on my day off to hang in my mancave:

Stunning! The fretboard is nothing to sneeze at either :rockon:
Kiesel basses, lots of pedals, nothing wrong
