Just ordered my first Kiesel. Visited the showroom a little over a year ago, and was tempted, but decided to make sure a custom guitar is the way I wanted to go. I bought a Fender Jazz, and I love it, but when I returned to the showroom a couple weeks ago, I played the Vanquish on the wall and that was it! Had to have one. Ordered my V49K on 5/2/18 in a simple, (what I hope is) timeless configuration:

V49K - Vanquish 4-string
ASH - Swamp Ash body
RTF - Raw Tone Satin
3MW - 3pc Maple w/Walnut
APH - Ash Headstock overlay
EF - Ebony Fretboard
STF - Stainless Steel frets
ISOD - Staggered Offset dot inlay
IMP - MOP inlays
KRJ - Radium Single Coil pickups
BC - Black Chrome hardware
BL - Black logo
SL - Straplocks by Dunlop

Estimated Delivery - 1st week of July

Is the finish just going to be the clear raw tone on ash? I'm suprised we don't see more of that. That's going to look great!

If it is, I totally agree. Right on! 8)

I just completed (by "I completed", I mean the company I work for, on a project I worked on, finished coordinating the design, purchase, manufacture and installation of) a large office furniture project with nearly 1,000 solid ash desk tops, close to 400 other solid ash and ash veneer table tops, and then about 20 custom-built solid ash tables, and a bunch of other custom seating and misc, all with open-grain-style clear finishes on ash (and about 40 in a sort of "jet black raw tone" style finish).

And even after aaaaall that, I'm still not sick of clear on ash. :lol:

It is raw tone.
