Lefty Osiris O6 with Berylliums

Postby ThaTroll » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:43 am

This will be my fifth Carvin/Kiesel custom build (currently an even split with two guitars and two basses). A few years ago I picked up a lightweight headless bass as an alternative to my No. 1 bass (a Carvin LB70) for times when my back/neck/shoulder issues flare up, and that experiment has been successful enough that I now want to do the same on guitar. So the name of the game with this build is getting the weight down as much as possible, plus scratching the itch I've had for light blue guitar for some time now.

Specs:

O6 model, lefty
Hardtail
Stock alder/maple body and neck
Specify lightweight alder (upcharge)
Chambered
Maple cap
Light blue, satin finish
Rosewood board with MOP dots
14" radius
Stock stainless medium-jumbo frets
Beryllium pickups with white coils and silver poles
White logo
Straplocks

Here's my quick mockup (just pretend it has a white logo, and an actual hardtail rather than a tremolo with the bar photoshopped out):
