Re: Week 33 - Issue caused a rebuild - DC127.

Postby Wizdum » Sat Jul 31, 2021 8:27 am

An update @ week 33, but not the update I wanted to hear:
Something happened to the guitar so we had to start over and rebuild it.

...that.....stings a little.
But, I am old enough to know, you have to expect "the speedbumps of life."

Silver lining? I don't imaging there are many, if any other DC127s pending.
Maybe will be the last DC127 (left or right) to roll out?

Yeah, that hurts to find out they have to start over, especially this far into the process. But my understanding is rebuilds are usually given priority, and hopefully it meets your expectations. Definitely better for them to admit to the mistake and rebuild it than to not.

Honest question: what happens to the guitars that get botched?

Are they on showroom floor as markdown?

I can't see them eating much cost if this isn't an uncommon speed bump.

If it's a quality issue: bandsaw. They don't sell "B-stock" other than things like artist loaners or NAMM builds, and those all start out as any other normal-quality builds.

If it's a spec issue (mine was...they accidentally used the "standard" mahogany body wood instead of the ash wood I asked for), then it likely gets completed, possibly with a few specs changed if they can still pick options they feel may sell better, then put into the showroom/Guitars In Stock page.

Re: Shop Walk Sighting @WW37 - DC127.

This is, for-sure my DC127.

WW37 means:
I ordered 39 weeks ago, minus the 2 weeks they were closed closed for the holidays.
My order was in late November 2020

Well, I didn't catch any other DC127s.
I would assume, that ALL the other DC127s that were order before the cut-off have been fulfilled.
But I think you can still order one.

So, what do ya think?
At the stage its at now, do you think I will have it in my hands early October?

It appears that the Kiesel logo hasn't been applied yet.
The headstock has an Ebony laminate.
Perhaps they have to coat the ebony before applying the decal.

Another Shop Walk Sighting @ 41 Wks / 39 WWks.

Another back side shot.
I wanted a very gentle fade, I hope that's what I get.

I would guess its getting electronics, since the trem isnt installed.
Its getting a piezo w/ tone delete so, its probably going to be there for a while.

Its probably at least 3 weeks minimum before its home.
That's into October.
But, who knows.

I ordered Nov 27th, 291 days ago.
So, I am only 74 days away from the one year anniversary of my order.
:lol: :lol: :lol:
