Edit: Oh...right. These are the pics on that pink/purple one where they first mentioned the actives.


Has Jeff said much about these yet? Any indication of what they are like?

Mine's wood … for teh tonezzz baybee!! :lol:
But yeah, acrylic neck … that's gonna be even heavier!!

Mine are bolt-neck, like rivots, no screw adjustment. Stoopid idea, not very stable. This does look to be set or thru - more stable?

I like it. For some reason, I like lucite guitars, and that one is a cut above some of them. Looks like they even polished the routes inside, which is something I've not seen before.

Probably heavy, but it really does show off their construction. I'd buy it, if I had the money. I like lifting weights, too. :mrgreen:

13lbs suprisingly...which is a testament to how light the Aries can be in woods. It's been years between when I owned them, but I swear my ash-bodied Aries feels nearly as light as my old Mahogany Ibanez S.


Those insides do look flame-polished. I wish they would have done a trem with their kiesel trem to show off their custom block...but that might have put too much strain on it because the trem would need balanced tension to not look "decked". :think:

There is some super light wood out there. And Gibson seems to have a supply of it. Their 4 string EB basses (new body style) are consistently about 7 pounds. Heck the 5 strings are about the same.

This one is 6lbs 3 ounces. That's 15 ounces lighter than the 4 string Vader I returned.

Not on social media, but the website. Now that the PB is Kiesel branded and has the newer style heel, they had to build an example to photograph for the website, and they did in their new-for-2019 color, Metallic Lavender...although here it says light purple...maybe this was made before Jeff named it? Or maybe it's changed? Or maybe it a different color? :wall: :lol:
