Agreed. I would've really liked to have done a black binding on my hot pink V220 but it was literally the most expensive option I looked at. At $300 it was almost 1/4 of the cost of what I spent on the DC600 I got at the same time, lol. So that didn't happen.

Two Kiesel artists: Cole Roland (really nice, super motivated/ambitious and smart guy...sat next to him at a group dinner table with him one night at NAMM) and Anna Setina covering "Heaven" from Bryan Adams.

Now that's nice.
When I got my red denim, the first idea was actually to go green.
I asked for something similar -actually similar to this:

But was told I couldn't really get to that look at the time.
It seems like nowadays at least it's feasible. Couple of years too late for me :laughhard:

Yeah, that one was just posted today. I vaguely remember a recent similar-ish one...maybe one with raw tone on ash and the finish that's more black on the burst...classic burst whatever that finish was called...

I'd play this.
What's the specs? Why do they post these on Instagram and not post the specs?

Mahogany satin with light blackburst edges? or it might be mahogany with tobacco burst

Yes, that do that about 98% of the time, on both IG and FB. If they did post specs, there would be faaaar fewer photos, so it's a trade off. More posts on instagram = more engagement on instagram, I guess.

The finish is trans orangeburst, though. Sometimes when people ask, Kiesel follows up with replies and this was one of those times. My gut says a roasted maple neck (it's not multiscale, so the length would still work for roasted maple), and...maybe...plain koa? Mahogany? A lighter piece of one of the limbas, perhaps?
