NGD - JB100X

Postby elstefo » Sun Aug 06, 2017 1:05 pm

Here's my first pictures and the unboxing video I made on my first Kiesel. Still haven't been able to take any pictures in good light, so more pictures and another video will come.

I think everything about the guitar is amazing. It's my first guitar with a tung oil neck and I absolutely love it!

Super nice guitar, sir. Yes, the tung oil necks are hard to beat. Will wait to see more pics. Congrats.

Did you get the Gold drop shadow logo? Looks great. Aren`t the JB100`s 25.5 scale? The body looks more like a DC without the beveling maybe? Still looks great though :rockon:

It's just the regular gold logo and yes, it's 25.5 scale.
I've never seen a DC with my own eyes here in Sweden, but I think the JB body is more round on the sides. At least what I think from looking at pictures of both models.

The blackburst edge really sets that off nicely.

How does the hipshot kiesel trem hold tuning? Is it just as good as an OFR?

After some bending and swinging stretching the new string for the first few days it holding tune perfectly. Now weather is changing for winter and temperature is going up and down alot here in Sweden both indoor and outdoor so some days I have to make small adjustments to get it in tune before I start to play it, but after that it stays in tune til I stop playing for the day. Couldn't be more happy with it and can absolutely recommend it!

Welcome and congratulations. Very happy for you. The guitar is beautiful. (By the way, the landscape in the background of your photos is wonderful too!).
