Make it multiscale and you might get my interest :P

Guitar theorem: G=X+1 where G= guitars one needs, and X = guitars one has.

Do or do not; there is no understand.

This evening's kiesel musings

The Vader bridge is really a clever thing. Such a simple design that works well. Easy string changes for a locking system, and no, my screws don't stick out on the tuners and my strings are cut flush!!
The new strings are the only thing that could entice me away from my scb6.

Which leads me to thought number 2.
I'm glad I didn't order an scb when they came out. After multiple builds over the years I really figured out what I wanted to do with the scb. I put all of my favorite / dream options into one guitar and it just kicks ass.
A joy to play. Its so nice when a build REALLY works out. :mrgreen:
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

Options, Options, Options! I'm happy but UGH!

While I am happy about Kiesel's vast array of options, configurations, colors, finishes, etc...

I'm feeling a bit frustrated about the growing "In-and-Out Burger" secret menu. Each month there are more variations on things that are available to us but there is really no way to get your arms around everything. I know the answer is to "call my guys" but, even when I do call, they aren't going to have the time to just suggest everything.

I'd be happy with a current color guide that listed all colors, paint options, and finishes.

I agree. Even if they just had a single page that was just "custom gallery" that was simply a single image of things, with a brief-enough description to know what to ask for.

In other news, I kinda want a DC600 or Aries in black-on-hot-pink (or red-purple color shift or Tropical Turquise) crackle with a reverse pointy headstock, all black hardware, Floyd, and Abalone logo with a flamed maple fretboard and black dot inlays.
