And without a top, it'll have that "definitive kiesel/Carvin" neck-through look of the visible 5-piece with the maple and walnut. :applause:

Looks like an AWESOME build, man. Really sharp appointments on a remarkable bass model. I hope it exceeds your expectations.

Thanks for posting!

That will be a wonderful Christmas present to yourself. I JUST (2 days ago) received my new Aries bass. Before that, my last new bass was 17 or 18 years ago and it was an LB70!

I love the feel of the LB70 neck, love walnut and also think the "neck-thru show is very sharp.

Congrats. Now sit back and wait. To make my wait go faster, I ordered lots of accessories (strap, tuner, strings, stand) all one at a time. Didn't help.

You're gonna love it though.

Major congrats, very nice. That’s also a pretty impressive build time, standard time for me has always been like 2.5 months, but I think it’s a really cool step forward that Jeff is making.


The LB is my favorite body shape, just based on looks. Yours should be awesome, nice choice with the singlecoils :rockon:
Kiesel basses, lots of pedals, nothing wrong
