It's wild, it almost has the qualities that that baconny koa he's been getting for the past 2 years or so has.

It's funny, the "arrowhead" looks more like a nose to me. Those 2 dots in there the nostrils.

Unique top tho'!

I remember watching this stream and drooling over that top. Phenomenal specs to match it! :applause:

This one is going to be a real looker when it's finished.

They are gold, but because they are directly under a spotlight, the contrast is washing out any visible reflection, making them appear black. It's like a mirror showing a black wall.

I love the Vanquish shape. A Vanquish, SH550 and a SCB6 would round out my stable nicely.

The Vanquish is the only one of the "new" Kiesel shapes (Aries, SCB, any headless) that really appeals to me. Has a retro-yet-modern vibe I like.

I like the SCB quite a bit when it's in solid colours. It reminds me of a cross between two guitars I have already that I like.

Other than that...I agree 110%.

Suppose I am biased since I have a SCB in the oven, but the SCB, Vanquish, and K are the only models I like the "deep body binding effect" on because of the symmetry/half-symmetry in the case of the SCB. No offense to Aries owners but I much prefer those in single pieces or solid colours.

That being said, I really like that look on those shapes with a highly figured top, but I totally understand why others don't.
