Finally ordered my first Kiesel! Walnut/Maple SCB6

Postby sodawars » Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:04 pm

Got several promotions at work over the course of the last couple of months, and my girlfriend suggested I celebrate by buying the guitar I've been dreaming of (and a ring for her, which is also in the works :shh:). Very excited to get this, it'll be my first Kiesel and my first guitar that's not a budget bin Epiphone or Squier, after more than a decade of playing.

I have very fond memories of neckthru guitars with the neck showing through the front of the guitar in the old Carvin catalogs I got as a kid, so the idea of this build is to call back to that. Pretty bare bones order, not much in the way of fancy options, but it should look very clean and classy.

SCB6M SINGLE CUT BEVEL TOP
WAL MAPLE NECK & WALNUT BODY
CS CLEAR SATIN MATTE FINISH
5MW 5PC-PC LAM MPL NCK W/WNT ST
TN TUNG OIL FINISH BACK OF NECK
NHWO NO HEADSTOCK WOOD OVERLAY
BMF BIRDSEYE MAPLE FRETBOARD
NIN NO TOP INLAYS-SIDE DOTS ON
STF STAINLESS STEEL FRETS
KBB INSTALL Beryllium Bridge P.U.
KBN INSTALL Beryllium Neck P.U.
PCC PICKUP COVER CHROME
DSLS DROP SHADOW LOGO SILVER

Really excited for this to arrive, my birthday is in mid October, so hopefully it'll show up just before then! Of course, many photos will be taken once it arrives.

I think that one is going to look very classy, and should be very stable with the wood choices. I bet it'll scream, too.

Congrats on having a supportive woman. She deserves a ring (congrats to you both).

It arrived today!! Had it delivered to my work because I'm always there. Got to play it a little on my break (unplugged) and I'm already blown away by the build quality and design. I'm busy all day tomorrow but I have all day Wednesday off to take photos and get a lot more playing time.
