V6X -- New Photos

Postby arahobob » Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:53 am

Steinberger Killer

My take on their M series guitar that I loved so much back in the day, but never could acquire.
A superior Kieselfied version. A modern classic.
The entry pricing on the new bridge pushed me over the edge.
Would have gone with RTF, but was not willing to take the chance with new / unknown hardware & no 10 day.
Super excited to have a HSS again - going all the way back to my beginnings.

All OPT50s are returnable.
Due sometime @ the end of March-ish
Big time thanks to Mike Jones.

Looks amazing! Great call on the HSS pickup configuration! Nothing sounds better than a good mid-rangey single in the neck :)

Neck humbuckers are nice and all.
The single coil middle and neck are truly where my heart lies.

As the end draws nearish (hopefully) I finally sold off one of the guitars that was going to fund this one.
Normally i sell first / buy later, but that intro pricing sucked me in!!!!

The months have flown by!

Your light blue one should be a winner too.

I'm guessing I have around 3 weeks to go.
Who knows?

I'm mostly excited about the new bridge and the HSS.
I'll be honest, I've been checking their FB pics of the day pretty regularly this month!

Jeff said the name of the owner of EVERY SINGLE OTHER GUITAR EXCEPT THIS ONE!
He did say it was a RAD build! :mrgreen:

I'd have to say there's a decent chance it's mine
The only strange thing I heard in the walk through - he mentions the "new Kiesel single coil pups (covered)" while he's showing a Bolt.
Does anyone know about this????
I haven't heard thing.
:think:
I definitely was hoping for the non-covered singles I had all ready heard. I'm going to have to reach out to Mike.

As of today, I've unloaded two guitars and officially have all the cash in hand for the V6X!
I could just buy guitars, but I'm not really working with them as much these days.
I justify the spending by unloading stuff that's laying around - ship guitars off to good homes.
Makes me feel better about my frivolous spending. :laughhard:

Feel free to finish my v6x and send it east asap!!!!

Fed Ex emailed saying there's a package headed my way from the west coast. 15 lbs or so.
Sounds suspiciously vadereque
Friday could be a pretty cool day in the house of arahobob.

Out for delivery to my local FedEx place @ around 9:43 am
It's around 8:41 pm and the package is "IN TRANSIT"

Called FedEx and aske WTF is up - they honestly have no idea.
NOT COOL.
:evil:

Maybe next week they can find it - no one's going to look Sat or Sun.
Not impressed w/ the fed ex team today.
Not one bit.

Are you near the hub? I've had them hold packages for pickup but I'm right at an airport, so they were open late.

Or mayve they could deliver to a FexEx/Kinkos location that has extended hours?

It was supposed to go to my local FedEx place for pick up (open till 11pm). It never made it.
The problem is that it was scanned out for delivery - and that's it.

They'll have to figure out where it is and what happened. At the moment they don't have any idea other than that it went on to a truck....... :roll:
Probably not this weekend from the sounds of it.

Man, that's a pain! But this build looks like it'll be worth the hassle! 8)
