Ordered my FIRST Kiesel (Vader) IT'S HERE!

Postby WFPPtheSound » Mon Nov 27, 2017 3:07 pm

I am so excited! I've been drooling over these guitars since the old Carvin catalogs in the early 2000s. This is my college graduation present to myself. The black friday special was the straw that broke the camels back and I sold my Charvel and some other pieces of gear around the house and made the call. This will be my first headless guitar. Thanks to Keith for making it a painless fun process!

V6 VADER
ALDER BODY/MAPLE NECK
GRAPE JELLY METALLIC GLOSS FINISH :twisted:
TUNG OIL FINISH NECK
STANDARD EBONY BOARD
MOP BLOCK INLAYS 8)
STAINLESS STEEL MED JUMBO FRETS
H/H LITHIUM PUPS BLACK/WHITE ZEBRA BOBBINS
BLACK LOGO
BLACK KNOBS W/ PEARL TOPS
SL STRAPLOCKS BY DUNLOP
ULTIMATE SOFT CASE

I went low on cosmetic options since I'm a fresh graduate starting my new job (see also "broke"). If I love it as much as I think I will, more will come!

Edit: It arrived on 2/15. We just recently got a break from cloudy skies so I could take some usable pics. I have never had a better guitar in my 15+ years of playing. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

Looks very cool - digging the choice of gloss for the body.
It should turn out amazing.
The vader is a great model.

Congrats on graduation and enjoy the wait!

2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
