Vanquish Guitar AND bass run!

Postby spudmunkey » Fri Oct 06, 2017 1:07 pm

Put it in the gallery because it's not just guitar or just bass and wanted to make sure everyone saw it. :)

https://www.facebook.com/groups/KieselVanquishRun/


Welcome to the Kiesel Vanquish Limited Run Group!

In this group you will be able to choose from 3 Stages to build up and order your very own Vanquish Guitar or Bass and save huge!

A few key details:
Run orders start Weds October 11th @ 9:00am PST by calling 858-GUITARS - international customers can email International@KieselGuitars.com
Make sure you print off and highlight the options you want on your build BEFORE calling in - these runs have always sold out and it is very hectic and chaotic - our staff will NOT have the time to go over each and every option with you over the phone.

Photos of the Stage 3 resin tops available will be uploaded for selection - because this is so limited you will need to select your top 5 BEFORE calling in and our sales staff will give you your highest preference based on availability.

Limited to a max of 2 instruments per customer

There is a set limit to each Stage

All instruments will be signed and numbered on the back of the headstock by Jeff Kiesel before they ship out

All Sales are Final (no returns will be given)

No changes are allowed - period - yes even 5 mins after you hang up the phone.....

20% deposit on stage 1 and 2 / 50% deposit on stage 3

Pics, videos and updates along the build process will be uploaded to the Confirmed Kiesel Vanquish Group (only accessible to customers who partake in this run)

All of these instruments carry the same 5 year warranty and in no way are rushed out. These Builds will take anywhere from 8-16 weeks depending on the Stage and Options selected. Because we have gone through and streamlined the selection this will help us batch the builds together and be more efficient - passing that savings and then some right on to you guys.

Good Luck and Hopefully you get your order for a Guitar or Bass in before we sell out.
Commenting is turned off on all posts for now....

99% of all your questions will be answered by reading the options offered in each Stage description - if it is not listed as an option means it is not available

Since they are non-returnable anyway (because it's a run), they will add a tone-knob for no charge to the guitars.

I want a 4-string standard scale or a 5-string multiscale, stage 3...but to justify it since I'm not a bass player, I would need it to be <$,1000, and that ain't happening. :laughhard:

It doesn't say if you can get 22-pole pickups instead of the Lithiums... :stir:

...how exactly? The easy out: it's a run, and options are limited for efficiency.

Back on topic: I hadn't seen that teal+walnut one. That looks great.

They are woods that have been permeated (stabilized) with resins. They area usually burled woods, and can be quite colorful.

They have a specific "vanquish run" facebook group. This is actually the same way they have done the last couple, too.

What specific color is that sparkle, just sprakle blue? I also saw they have "metallic" rawtones, anyone have pictures of what those look like?

Pearl Blue Metallic, with raw tone, on ash.

Because raw tone is a satin finish, you loose some of the sparkle depth of the metalic-ness, but seem to gain a diffused "glow".
