NGD! CT6 Deep Umber Flame w/Antique Brown & Flamed Maple Neck

Postby Feenwager » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:49 am

Yeah. It's pretty froot.

The Duncan Saturday Night Specials are exactly what I hoped for, and they absolutely killed it on the build quality. The only thing I may consider is swapping out the black switch for a cream switch now that I've seen it in person.

The pickup rings are flamed maple, too. Not sure if that shows enough in the photos.

I'm gonna go play!

GREAT looking build!
I'm surprised how red the Antique Brown burst looks.
LOVE the neck, Board, and Inlays!

Why did you cover up the flamed headstock with the Ebony though?
I've seen that before and thought that I would've wanted to see the Flame as much as possible.

Still a beauty!!
Congrats and enjoy!!

Thanks, man.

I showed Keith a photo of a finish on another guitar I really liked and he suggested the Umber/Brown combo. I trusted him and he was right. Funny how red it comes out with the other color under it.

As for the headstock, I really wanted a vintage vibe overall so I went with plain black. I’m not always a fan of matching the body flame with the headstock, I think it works about half the time for me. I did consider going with royal ebony on the headstock, but I’m happy with my choice.

That is downright unbelievably sexy. Oh, and by the way... Welcome to the 12th fret only signature inlay on royal ebony Club. It's very exclusive... Hahaha!

Gorgeous git ya got there. I like everything about it. I'm a huge fan of the non-matching headstocks and particularly like yours. Congrats and enjoy.

Wow! That top just pops!

Nice color choices, it goes together really well.

I love the simplicity of a single volume knob.

I agree about the Saturday Night Specials....I have one in the bridge of my CS6 and Pearly Gates in the neck. They sound good!

Congratulations!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. A few days in and I'm still loving it!

Super impressed by the light piece of mahogany I got for the body, and it just plays so easily. I've owned three CT's over the years and none of them were of this quality. Kiesel is definitely at the top of their game right now.

Oh, I also swapped the switch for cream. It definitely looks better.
