Kiesel #11 has been ordered

Postby silvergoat2k6 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:01 am

Been wanting to do a build for awhile now, was just undecided about what model I wanted, and then when I picked a model I couldn't decide on what wood and/or finishes I wanted. When the Black Friday/Cyber Monday news came out, I figured it was time to get going on this but I was still undecided...

Finally settled on a Solo 6, so then it was off to the builder to try to come up with something that I'd like but was still under my budget. I actually came up with this build pretty quickly this time, and after a quick email exchange with Chris, #11 was on the order book.

Specs:

Solo 6
Hipshot Fixed Bridge
1-piece Swamp Ash body
Clear Gloss Finish
3-piece Maple neck w/1 Walnut stripe
22-fret fingerboard
H33 Headstock
Ash headstock overlay
Black Ebony fretboard
White Pearl block inlays
Gold M-J frets
14" radius
Beryllium neck and bridge pickups
Black coils with Gold polepieces
Gold hardware
Drop Shadow Gold Logo
White Pearl tuning pegs
Hardshell case

A big thanks once again to Chris for his assistance, friendship, and for keeping me under budget. Hoping for a really nice grain pattern on this. 8)

That sounds excellent. I hope you like it and I hope the waiting isn't too awful. :)

Very cool! So just the clear gloss on the ash? Good call on the one-piece body. I can picture it in my head with the black covered pickups, too. Very cool!

Going for an even dozen?

...bakers' dozen?

:stir:

Yep, just clear gloss on the body. I just love the look of natural ash.

I do want another GH3 and another CS3/6...but it's gonna be awhile before either of those get ordered.
