And now 12 weeks. Sigh ...
Expecting some new gear from Kiesel Guitars? Post here!
I feel your pain, I ordered a vader bass April 2nd...Hopefully soon!
I just received my guitar that I ordered 50 days ago, so that might help give a recent estimate. Note that I got essentially the simplest build one could get (default everything, no paint, tung oil finish), so that probably sped things up a bit.
I bet getting any kind of finish probably contributes significantly to the wait time, now that I think about it.

thesleeve, that's darn quick!
DD, good to know. Mine's running on the tail end of the estimate. Actually, when I went through checkout, it said 9-10 weeks, but when I got the email receipt, it said 10-12. It's been 12 weeks and 2 days ...
It will be 12 weeks to the day on July 2nd. Haven't heard a word. I called about a week or so ago and got absolutely no answer except a reiteration of the estimated date i got when i ordered it. I don't think mine is a complicated build.
Why would you? In your earlier post you said they told you 12 weeks...and that's not until next week.
You sound frustrated that it wasn't completed in week 10 of a 12-week estimate. It's also an *estimated* date, and actual ship dates swing both directions by a few weeks. Some people are 14-15, sometimes its 6.
I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it on this thread yet but, in a live walk through of the custom shop last week, Jeff mentioned that orders paid in full are being prioritized (still by date ordered, of course) due to the high volume of orders coming in and limited space for finished guitars to sit waiting for payment. That will certainly be an added variable in wait time, at least for those who haven't paid off their builds. sounds like a bonus for those who have, all the more reason to take care of it at the time of order!
I've only got 3 days until the estimated completion date for my VM8 (ordered on 5/11)! We'll see what happens.
