New Vanquish Bass Ordered

Postby bsquared62 » Tue May 15, 2018 12:39 pm

Just ordered my first Kiesel. Visited the showroom a little over a year ago, and was tempted, but decided to make sure a custom guitar is the way I wanted to go. I bought a Fender Jazz, and I love it, but when I returned to the showroom a couple weeks ago, I played the Vanquish on the wall and that was it! Had to have one. Ordered my V49K on 5/2/18 in a simple, (what I hope is) timeless configuration:

V49K - Vanquish 4-string
ASH - Swamp Ash body
RTF - Raw Tone Satin
3MW - 3pc Maple w/Walnut
APH - Ash Headstock overlay
EF - Ebony Fretboard
STF - Stainless Steel frets
ISOD - Staggered Offset dot inlay
IMP - MOP inlays
KRJ - Radium Single Coil pickups
BC - Black Chrome hardware
BL - Black logo
SL - Straplocks by Dunlop

Estimated Delivery - 1st week of July

Is the finish just going to be the clear raw tone on ash? I'm suprised we don't see more of that. That's going to look great!

I just completed (by "I completed", I mean the company I work for, on a project I worked on, finished coordinating the design, purchase, manufacture and installation of) a large office furniture project with nearly 1,000 solid ash desk tops, close to 400 other solid ash and ash veneer table tops, and then about 20 custom-built solid ash tables, and a bunch of other custom seating and misc, all with open-grain-style clear finishes on ash (and about 40 in a sort of "jet black raw tone" style finish).

And even after aaaaall that, I'm still not sick of clear on ash. :lol:
