Just ordered my ultimate metal beast

Postby Dave_78 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:50 am

It's my first Kiesel, so I felt obliged to go with the popular KRG color :)
I really hope this guitar turns out to be as good as it will look! There is nothing particulary fancy (most of the options are the standard ones), but i love that green X220 with the ebony keyboard and green dot inlays.
Now I'll share the painful weeks of waiting with you guys!

Metal indeed! The green inlays are going to be a cool contrast with that ebony fretboard and black hardware.

Nice! :rockon:

Only thing i might add, would have been black-painted bevels, but that would likely make it non-returnable, so this is about as good at it gets without doing that!
