#21 AB6 Special Grey Buckeye Burl

Postby amispy » Fri Dec 06, 2019 9:47 am

I did it again. This will be my 21st Carvin/Kiesel. It is truly an addiction.

The pick-your-top Buckeye Burl from Instagram kept haunting me, so I just snagged it. :-)

amispy; if you don't mind my asking, was your AB6 a custom build; or was it already made?

As an afterthought, if your AB6 was already built, it should not have taken this long for you to get your shipping notice.
All things being normal, that is!

normally I'm not a fan of mixing AAT with natural wood tones, but dang that works well here! Congrats on the NBD, and perhaps the last AB?

Gorgeous!

I wish that I had the $$ to order an Aries before they discontinued, that one is super sharp.

:applause:

It's fun to realize who people are on the forum based on NGD posts on the FB group. Takes me back to the old internet days where you had no idea who somebody was on a forum until an in person meet was held. :lol:

I couldn't believe they discontinued the Aries basses. Well at least I'll always have my AB5 and AB6.
