Took advantage of the Dad's day special...

Postby pbass6811 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:09 pm

Even though I'm not a guitar player, I've always wanted to have a nice guitar for my studio. I always hafta have one of my guitar players or a guitar playing pal come over to flesh out song ideas because I didn't have a guitar to mess around on. Almost every guitar player we've had in the band, has played some kind of PRS, so, I really like those guitars. I like the way they sound and I love the way they look. Since I've been playing Kiesels, I wanted to keep it in the family. When I saw the Father's Day special, I knew it was time, so I ordered a CT324X. Since guitar isn't my primary instrument(I'm a bassist) and I won't be playing this on stage, I went pretty low key on the specs. I really just want it to have in the studio, so it didn't need to be fancy. I may take it to shows, so my guitar player has something for alternate tunings, but it's gonna be my studio songwriting tool. I'm pretty excited...

Just trying to keep the price at point where I don't feel bad because I just bought an instrument that I, kinda, don't play, LOL! I do want to get better at playing guitar, as I feel it will help my bass playing. And so the wait begins again...

I'm still waiting on my VB5 Fretless. It was "due" last week, but my other VB5 was about 3 weeks late, so no worries.

I feel like I will be waiting for basses and guitars most of this year... :woot:

Yeah, I've been staring at your CT's for a while, LOL! I'm pretty sure it was $1,049 base, then the $100 to make it an X. You could always use another one... :wink:

Well, Mr. Jones got ahold of me and did me a solid! White/White wasn't my first choice for my build, but since I wasn't sure how long the special would be going and I couldn't get ahold of anyone at Kiesel, I went ahead and picked a color that I'd be happy with, even if it wasn't what I wanted, and ordered it online Sunday night. Mike pm'd me and asked me to email him and he'd fix it for me. I told him that was super cool, but it wasn't necessary, I was ok with my choice. He said he could get it changed and that it wasn't a problem. I said, well, if it isn't a problem...

I'm now waiting on a Primer Gray CT324X! I guess they've not done a PG CT, so, mine'll be the first! :woot:

Thanks, Mike!
