My Kiesel Lineup is complete... for now

Postby jfuchs18 » Thu Jun 27, 2019 9:09 am

Having just received the last of three Kiesels ordered this year, I wanted to take a moment to thank the company for making such stellar instruments. I had never owned a headless guitar, but was intrigued by how many I've seen in recent years. Having played a few secondhand, I decided to take the plunge. I tried a multiscale a few years ago, but found it wasn't really for me. That AM6, like all the Carvin/Kiesel guitars I have owned held its value pretty well, and having received a decent amount of money selling it, it helped fund these builds. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how helpful Keith Ighner was when deciding which options I wanted. He answered every question, made great suggestions, and was very personable. I never felt like I was talking to a salesman. The only pressure I felt was that which I put on myself. With so many choices before me, my brain was in overdrive and Keith never flinched. It really felt like I was ordering a guitar through a buddy. He is truly an asset to the company and I told him if I ever make it out to Escondido, drinks are on me.

I went with three Osiris builds and am thrilled with each of them. So easy and fun to play. All of them have the trem option and they stay in tune wonderfully, even using various tunings. They are going to be a staple in my rotation.

LMAO! Yeah, the Fluence pickups have a nice reflective quality. But I will occasionally dip them in Guacamole.

I use holy mole' instead of guacamole'. The tones, man. The tones.

A nice collection you have going, and it's nice to see some more Fluences.

So it's gonna be like that? You literally post in the "photo gallery" section of the forum, talk about a guitar you just got, and don't post any photos?

:cowbell: :cowbell:

Nice...a CL450, too? Strangely, that's probably the retired model I most wish I would have gotten before it went the way of the dodo.
