Postby SolidOrangeTiger » Wed Jun 19, 2019 4:38 pm

Firstly, I apologize for the extremely bad joke in the title but regret nothing. :)

After debating back and forth on it with myself for several months, I decided to finish off my Kiesel collection (I know, famous last words) with a K series. I am stoked about this!

Agreed! I think the contrast from the black hardware will look really clean against it.

Solid, this is an amazing build.

I just received my first guitar ever with a maple fretboard. I got roasted flame maple and it's simply spectacular. I'm positive you're going to love it.

Thanks! This is my first roasted maple board, but I do have an SCB6 with a Kiesel Treated Baked Birdseye board and I love it. I'm sure the roasted flamed maple will feel even better though!

Anxiously awaiting that shipping notification... :)

So FedEx delivered this one a day ahead of schedule...

But I got stuck with a late night at work and my apartment's leasing office closed before I could collect it.

Is it bad that I'm considering hacking my own building's security system? :laughhard:

Tomorrow I suppose... :)
