NGD - Aries 7x Poplar Burl

Postby PO0784 » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:50 am

New guitar day! I was amazed when I saw it pass on Kiesel FB. I can't be more happy with the final product. Fretwork is perfect, pickups sound great, killer look, amazing bridge... Finally something that can replace the old beaten up RG7.

Gotta say : shipped on friday and received it monday in Canada. Now, that's FAST!

Big thanks to Kiesel on this one! :applause: :applause: :applause:

Here's the spec list:

Aries 7 without the bevel
Hipshot contour 7 trem
Alder body, maple neck (nothing crazy here)
Poplar burl top and headstock veener
Custom burst (see picture)
black ebony fretboard
20 '' radius
Stainless XJ frets
Thin neck
Abalone K inlays with staggering offset dots.
Black hardware

What a phenomenal guitar. It looks even better than it did in the shop. Maybe that's because it's home. Such a sweet top ... lookit that flame! Congratulations.

Looks like a veneer of a closeup of the inside of a fumarole or volcano became the top. Very cool :applause: 8)
