I beat the price increase -- #10 now officially ordered

Postby silvergoat2k6 » Thu Dec 28, 2017 1:24 pm

Wasn't really planning on ordering another new Kiesel so soon after receiving my killer new CS3, but I didn't want to take a chance of the next Kiesel I wanted being price-hiked over my budget, so I went ahead and called Chris today and got Build #10 started. This build was inspired by my friend Tim's (X-Mann's) recent GH3 build...I loved the vintage look he achieved with his GH3 build and I wanted something similar but yet just a little more daring while still retaining some vintage looks. Time will tell if I achieve my goal.

Here are the specs:

GH3
Fixed Bridge
Alder Body/Maple Neck
Metallic Gold, like a Goldtop (not Metal Flake)...entire body painted
Birdseye Maple Fretboard
Black Acrylic Diamond Inlays
SS M-J Frets
HR33 Headstock
Birdseye Maple Headstock Overlay, Natural Satin
Black Pickguard
SD Lil' 59 in the Bridge Position
Twinblades in the Middle and Neck Positions
Black Pickups
Chrome Hardware
Black over Gold Drop Shadow Logo
Hardshell Case

Hopefully I will receive this right around my birthday (March 4th). Looking forward to seeing this one...just like with my CS3, I must have went through the builder 100 times before I decided to do something unique and not listed in the builder. Thanks as always to Chris for his help with this.

Thats' gonna be super slick with the black pickguard an inlays!

I'm still shocked nobody has pulled the trigger on an HH bepickuped GH3, though!

Did any of your options make for a non-returnable build?

Yes...my choice of paint and the Twinblades option made my guitar non-returnable.
