NGD - Crescent 6 in Quilted OrangeBurst (with BlackBurst Edges)

Postby SolidOrangeTiger » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:22 pm

Hi Folks,

It's my first post here but wanted to share photos of my brand new Crescent 6.

Came about 2PM today. Spent the afternoon with her and she definitely has my seal of approval as a lead guitar. Needs a name, though - I am open to suggestions. :wink:

EDIT1: Massive shout-out to Noble for helping me turn my ideas into reality on this one! I really appreciate all the help he gave me through the process.

EDIT2: "Ember" has been suggested for the name and I love it! Perfect name to fit the finish.

Here are the codes - Feel free to guess from the images before you look if you'd like:

Great looking guitar!
I'm going to suggest Ember for the name.
That color reminds me of the bed of coals at the end of a campfire.
The quilting simulates the way the color ripples across the coals as the airflow changes.

You asked... LOL.

Congrats and enjoy that beauty!!

I'm 100% with you and I love that name! Ember it is. I'm a huge Clemson fan so I knew I wanted Orangeburst, but I went back and forth on the Blackburst Edges. I'm glad I got them, though! They add so much character to the quilt.

I thought I was ready for the Black Limba wood grain, but even after seeing photos of this guitar online, when I pulled it out the case and looked at the back, it still took my breath away! Very happy I went with it over the usual mahogany (which is also great by the way).

Thanks, and it absolutely is fun! Resisting the G.A.S. for now, but this definitely will not be my last Kiesel. :lol:

Cool that you like the name and are going with it.
The color on the quilt with the black edge just struck me.

Hope you play lots of smoking hot licks on for years to come.
May it be an eternal fire of inspiration.

The GAS is real and many of us have multiple builds once the first one opens the door.
Enjoy the sickness.

Ok, so disclaimer: This is sloppy playing. I'm still getting used to her and didn't really warm up when I did this. Pretty much just started my Studio One interface, messed around with my Line 6 Helix, and played for 10 minutes. However, some friends asked me to record some riffs with this guitar, so if you're interested, here you go. I definitely don't expect anyone to listen to the whole thing.

Other disclaimer: It's mostly high-gain 80's riffs.

Tone-wise, I think "super-mahogany" is a perfect description of Black Limba and this guitar. Really nice mid range, smooth low end, and warm trebles. I'm also really surprised how much bite this thing has for a set neck guitar with a Floyd on it. I didn't do either of these things in the recording, but I'm really impressed with how the lithiums coil split and how this guitar behaves when I play clean. It's a really resonant instrument and the coil-split neck pickup in particular sounds like heaven when I dial down the gain. All, in all, she's exactly what I was looking for when I specc'ed this one.

Good lord! That thing has such a great classic look to it, a great blend of old and new. It's bringing on Crescent GAS for the very first time since the model came out...

So, about that... I took this guitar with me to meet a friend after work yesterday... Snapped this photo in the sun when I grabbed lunch.

I apologize in advance. :wink:

Gorgeous! Deep Orange and Deep Lava are my two favorite Kiesel stains. I like how Kiesel is doing the burst edges. When Deep Orange was first released by Carvin they did a simple black to orange transition which I was not crazy about. Adding the red transition makes the burst look sooo much better, IMO.

It's impossible to overstate how much that adds-- it's subtle version of that, but it's a tri-color burst nonetheless.. and this guitar, with the interplay of light and dark (the raw unpainted maple and plus the limba being lighter than something like mahog or koa or walnut) creating that nice contrast between the burst edge and the raw unpainted wood on the sides and back... it's one of the nicest tri-colors I've seen (and I own a couple!)

It's one of those guitars that come together in a way that's just an instant classic. Love it!
