Agreed! I sneer at veneer. Feh! :mrgreen:

Thanks dude! I definitely recommend the HH guitars; you'll love the light weight and huge sustain. Best guitars for legato playing (naturally, being designed by Holdsworth).

Love the look of spalt on a pointy! Your V rules! :applause:

Time to join the club! I've had my guitar for almost 2 years now and never posted "quality" pictures of it (let's all face it, i ain't a photograph and they are not the best pictures, but decent enough, lol).

Mother of god, the spalting on that carved top looks like it was drawn by hand by a master impressionist artist. Nice going! Enjoy her--that's a real beauty!

Here's my all-time favorite spalt I've seen from them. Not mine, but don't remember who on the BBS got this one. I've saved it as an example, should the mood x wallet formula ever get the best of me.

Kerimminy.. looks like a cross between petrified wood and rarest italian marble or something. Completely mind blowing. The very bottom center beneath the bridge looks like a phoenix rising under a mushroom cloud. Look close and you'll see it clear as day.

You just never know what's lurking in the GIS until you look. A truly awesome spalt top coupled with a one piece mohogany body, flamed maple neck, ebony jet black fret board, no inlays, black hardware. The pups are cream and black they look kind of white in the photo.

My all time favorite spalted Carvin/Kiesel it's still on my phone and when I do get a new Keisel this may be the picture I send as to my example! How does it play and sound?

Every here and there I wish that Kiesel would re-introduce mounted LP style pick guards for their axes, esp these CS's. This ravishing beauty of a spalt CS would look purrfect (imo only) with a black pick guard.

Not that it isn't totally fine and completely bitchin as is. I like pick guards on LP's though --like them both ways actually (obviously, since my two flame top LP style guitars have no pick guard, it's deleted on my DC150, and the guard on the Special is in classic Special style which is a screwed in ply scratch plate rather than a mounted guard bracketed down on the side of the body.

INCREDible CS though. I love that it has a relatively traditional burst scheme on it. It just looks incredible, and does just fine (obviously) without a pick guard.

What kind of pups on that bad boy? C, M, or H?

What color is this burst? It looks like a sunset burst or possibly a cherry sunburst edges? This is still my favorite spalted maple guitar! Looking someday to get a CS6 very similar looking to this one. Love this!!!
