Should look exactly like this one, literally a dead ringer.. there was one year where this apricot/peach kind of orange burst (faded into a thin line of brown around the edges) was used, and this is from then. But it may be even more mint than this one if possible. Everything 100% stock and original:

Was actually set to grab this one here with beautifully figured birch:

But then during a convo w NakedApe during PM about these he pointed out the crooked neck plate:
Image
and then looking close I noticed the rosewood (ebony?) mount for the bridge, which usually angles slightly downward/left hand side to be intonation-friendly.

Like so:
Image
but this one actually seems to slant the other way!
Image
Either someone did some weird work on it (doubt it) or it just came out of the factory that way (likely.. theory was it was the holidays and too much Swedish Akvavit in the shop).. and produced your proverbial lemon. Shame, since it's so mint and so beautiful, and probably plays just fine.

Just. Do. Not. Want.
So will be that orange burst. I think . . . .

Here are my Kiesel Kids. (From Left to Right)

Wally (Jan 17) - HH2X - Walnut Top, Mahogany Body, Maple Neck, Kiesel/Hipshot trem
Lil’ Al (Oct 16) - HH2X - Mahogany Top, Alder Body, Maple Neck, JCustom trem
Val (Aug 17) - V6 - Mahogany Top, Alder Body, 5P Maple/Mahogany Neck, Kiesel/Hipshot fixed
Obi-Wan (Apr 17) - V6X - Alder Body, Maple Neck, Kiesel/Hipshot trem

Val is really my favorite overall. The combination of the chambered body with the Holdsworth controls and pickups and fixed bridge on the neck-through guitar is just sonic nirvana. She is so light and can sustain notes longer than any of her brothers.

I will be adding what I expect to be a fifth and final "Kiesel Edition" kid to the family. I'm on Jeff's list now. So, maybe sometime next spring or summer I'll have a new kid to introduce to you.

Mine are always linked to in my sig - just 1 click away. No way I'm getting ALL of 'em in 1 room for a shot. :shock: :twisted: I probably haven't posted it here due to photo&*^%$#@et :evil: :evil: :evil: , but I since have that resolved with my own domain. Plus there are some linx to other interesting things (or not), like Carvin Museum mini-"Glogs" I sometimes write up about the life cycle of each piece (reviews, p/up swaps, etc).

I'm missing the crap-tastic Yamaha strat copy I just acquired (for free) but I don't think that will stick around very long.
