There are so many humbucker sized options available already, but Stonewall just came out with a new design called the "Slutty Wolf" you may want to check out.

Once again, there's not a single CS model in-stock. Can't decide if they're the most popular, or most hated.

They posted the one they brought to namm, and it was sold in a couple of hours.

I think that the young crowd that they attract nowadays are a little less into classic designs like that-- I think they generally are attracted by the wild stuff that Jeff is doing.

But I think there's still some of that crowd as well as the older Carvinites that are into a fat classic singlecut like the CS as well as the CT. I also tend to think that the majority of these younger Kiesel players are into drop tunings and therefore into 25.5 scale or multiscale. They probably don't put up anywhere near as many versus a Delos or a Vader etc, but when they do go up they tend to get snatched up quick!

Love that black-out ash with the gloss. I'll bet it looks way darker in person, but very sexy in the photo.

I look at this, idk, 2-3 times a week for the last couple months. Always contemplating pulling the trigger but still haven't. Absolutely gorgeous. I should just drive down there one Saturday, it'd only take me like 1.5 hrs, and bring her home.

Showroom is closed Saturdays (even before this whole "human malware" situation).

IDK why I thought it was open Saturdays :lol: Got my wires crossed. Well I suppose I could go any day really. I'd imagine right now they just ask that we call in advance to let them know what we want and when we will be there.

The showroom *used* to be open Saturdays, but hasn't been for like...a year.

For the past month or so, the showroom has been fully closed, except for by-appointment pickups only. I'm not sure if anything is changing this coming week, though.

Ooh. One-piece mahogany under that sapphire blue. Is it a solid one-piece body? Can't tell from the back photo, too small, but seems likely. That's about as nice and simple as you'll see from Kiesel, and pretty reasonable on the price, too!

Their math is a litle off on the standard price (I got $1549 when I built it out), but amusingly the guitar doesn't even use all $100 "free" options. The pickup covers and trans finish are the only two options that cost money, and they only total $80...but then in the cart, it even shows "$90 options discount". :lol: So ain't nothing right...

But, yeah...that one's gonna sell QUICK! it's actually the lowest-price in-stock right now (in the right-handed guitars section, anyway)
