Zeus guitar ordered.... now the waiting begins... TORTURE !

Postby nsxdude82 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 9:52 am

This is torture!!! I can appreciate how long this is taking as this is truly a custom guitar.
I can't wait to get mine but I have a LONG wait - 9 weeks.... sigh :(

Ordered my Zeus, Sapphire blue, thin neck, blue dots, tremolo.. Actually had a Strandberg but looking to get a different guitar, I realized if I ordered a Strandberg by the time I got done... about $3k !!!
Amazing what you can get with Kiesel; quality, completely custom... AMAZING!!

Can't wait!
Todd

I just hit the 8-week mark on my DC127. I've bought two other guitars since I ordered that one as well. I got a monkey on my back, I tell ya!

I’m on week 14 of a Vader build so hang in there.

Nice choice of car. I drive a S2000.

Week 10 !!! ugh... I was originally told 6 -9 weeks back in March. Although a basic build compared to most (should a lot like the one posted by Treadplatedual - except I have black Birilium (sp) pickups with black poles and it is a ZX - Mine has a trem)
I assumed more like 9. Then I watched a couple of youtube of Jeff and I think 9 has turned into 10 - 12 and maybe more... :(
What are you going to do !!!
Big outdoor gig coming up in July ... at least hoping to have it by then....

The torture continues...

Just keep checking Facebook, Instagram and the forum compulsively until you see it or it arrives on your door :) I'd like to say it gets easier (this is my 5th kiesel/Carvin, 4th custom built) but alas, it really doesn't haha!

All depends on what they want. If Jeff is hand-building it, or there's any really off the wall options requested, it can take far longer than 4 months - ask JCG about some of his epic build times...
