Today was the 2nd time Jeff's done a pick-your-top session, today unannounced, where he just grabs a pile of tops, marks 'em down, and offers them up rapid-fire style, and lays them out on the video.

Today he had (8) 5A flamed tops for $50 (normally $450), and some 5A quilt tops for $200 (not sure how much those normally are). Along with all of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, there's quite a bit of savings to be had.

All but 1 of flame tops sold (someone backed out at the last minute for some reason) and I think there was 1 quilt top left. The one I saw looked great!

I grabbed a flame. Was on the fence about doing a build before the end of the year, but that sealed it.

Tell me about it...50$ instead of 250 or 450$ on top of other promos... :shock:

Congrats on snagging the top. And congrats on your 60th (and 45th)! :-)

Argh! I was so bummed I missed this pick-your-top session. I would have snagged a quilted maple. Nice quilts have gotten so expensive.

November 2019: All-time record quantity sales month. Also, nearly $1,000,000 sales in just the one month.

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

Black Friday/Cyber Mondy special is still going on: ends Friday.

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

1st of the year, there will be some models discontinued. No word on which.

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

Crescent C-hole is likely $150, but you have to also add the chambering option which is also $150, which also requires a top. Not sure if that price was recorded anywhere, so here it is.

Even though they've been streaming on both Facebook and Instagram, they only read questions posted on FB during the Q&A

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

No word on Kiesel bringing rosewood back for international orders. At least, not yet.

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

Close to 200 in-stocks sold in about a month.

Price increase coming at the beginning of the year.

Yeah, they even got me this year. 8)

I think Kiesel is still priced appropriately for the product and business model, but further price increases aren't very palatable to me. What can I say, the economy is absolutely roaring, so there is that! I really didn't see myself back here again, especially after discovering USA Schecters, but headless curiosity got the best of me and my Osiris is impressing the hell out of me....so I had to order a Vader and Vader bass before the increases set in. The headless thing really roped me in...these sound, respond, and play uniquely and really well.

My sentiments, exactly. I wanted a headless and ordered an Osiris because:
1. There are few other headless guitars to choose from on the market
2. I could order one with a SSS pickup config and bolt neck
3. Price, features, build quality and American made put Kiesel's in a unique position within the industry

Once the price increases are in effect, not sure if I would be able to afford the features that I wanted.

- '20 Osiris 6, Deep Tiger's Eye Flame
Past tense
- '02 Fatboy; '04 CT6M; '07 Fatboy; '11 Bolt+
