NGD - Trans Moss Green Over Black Limba Aries

Postby peoplearestrange » Sun May 06, 2018 7:27 pm

Aries6X with Trans Moss Green over Black Limba one piece body, one piece walnut neck, royal ebony fretboard, holdsworth bridge, and now Dimarzio Heavy blues ii in neck and middle.Got it a few weeks ago, did a couple pickup swaps today and finally got around to taking a few pictures. This guitar surpassed every expectation I had, somehow..it plays as good as it looks -- friknfrakn perfect. Swapped the neck and bridge afer the pics bc I wasn't crazy about the lithium sc's, too thin as Im used to vintage thick/hollow/woody sounding strat pups - also put a 750k ohm resistor on the volume pot to warm everything up and it worked like an absolute charm. The guitar has such a rich tone and sustain for days. This is my first Kiesel and the workmanship and finish knocked me out.This guitar has literally made me a better player, its just sooo easy to fret and move on the neck, and its so easy to access the upper fretboard. Love the bevel and the overall feel, the feel and stability of the trem is really great too. Can't say enough about this beauty, huge thanks to the guys here at Kiesel!

Flippin' perfect! :applause: Love that stripey limba and wavy, diagonal grain in the walnut. Even the little specs on the fretboard. This guitar is just a tour-de-force of gorgeous wood.

Dayum... they should call that finish over black limba "Pistachio" because that's what it looks like...

That is one sweet looking axe, it all comes together so nicely.

Those were my thoughts exactly, I was seriously so in awe of all the beautiful grains, I’m so happy with it I could cry

Hah hah cool! You should get a truss cover engraved with that nickname. I keep forgetting to send in my old 150K's truss cover screws' measurements to a custom cover company, I want to get one engraved.

I'm usually not the biggest fan of the Aries, but once again, that thing just came together completely perfectly.
