Zeusiris? Osireus?

Postby spudmunkey » Sat Apr 14, 2018 9:32 pm

Hmm...

I thought this could be a "best of both worlds", but I'm not sure it works as well as I had imagined.

To be clear, this is a 'shop, and not real.

I would like to see the lower horn mirrored as the upper horn, but still with the bevel

To be honest, that looks really good.

I wonder what it would look like in a 6 string. My biggest beef with new Kiesel designs is that the aesthetics of the body size to neck proportions are ideal for 7 and 8 strings, but look rather goofy in 6 strings. I'd always figured I'd get a 7 string eventually, but recently played a 7 and realized they just aren't for me.

If I had the choice between a Zeus, an Osiris and your Zeusiris, I'd go with the Zeusiris. The upper bout on the Zeus doesn't look right on a 6 string, and the Osiris looks a bit milquetoast to me-- but your design keeps what I like best about both. I think it looks best overall.

That rendering is much more appealing to me than the beluga. Still has some originality retaining the lower "jaw" but dumps the ugly forehead hump. I like.

I couldn't find high-quality straight-on images of two guitars of the same finish. If you can find two "gallery" type shots, I'll give it a go.

For me, I think it's the waste that's not grabbing me. It feels very "boxy" somehow, and I guess I wish the waist was narrower/curvier :think:

Michael Angelo Batio Kiesel signature model perhaps? He has played worse.

As wacky as his previous guitars have been, you could still tune them all. ;)

I was suspicious when I first watched him play. Alas my rumors were confirmed by a good source.

M.A.B. is an Alien. He wills the strings into tune.
