OM8 - My first order from France

Postby MisterP » Tue Nov 27, 2018 4:22 am

I wanted to replace my current 8 string (28", which is too long for me, also heavy as hell and too much neck dive) with a lightweight multiscale, so I turned to Kiesel and ordered my first one a month ago... The wait is killing me.

OM8
LMB - Black Limba Body
FDN - Deep Nightburst Flame
CG - Clear Gloss Finish
RNC - Rear of Body Natural Clear
CMB - Chambered Body
5WP - 5-Piece Walnut Neck w/ 2 Purple Heart Stripes
TN - Tung Oil Finish Back Of Neck
THNN - Thinner Neck Profile
EFB - Ebony Fingerboard (Less Color Variation)
NIN - No Top Inlays - Side Dots Only
STJF - Stainless Jumbo Frets
404 - White Coils
WL - White Logo
PK - Metal Knobs w/ White Pearl Inlays

I'd have liked a reverse monster burst more I think, but for a first order I didn't want to try any option 50. That'll be for the O7X next I guess :mrgreen:

Please post pics when done, I was contemplating Aquaburst over Black Limba, but was told that depending on the particular piece selected, it may not come out all that great. Nice build...and I envy you guys that play 8 strings...after 40+ years, I still struggle on 6's.

Hubba hubba that is nice. How did yours get the brown couch treatment. Most previews are on the blue craft paper.

Hehehe! After seeing the mail from Kiesel saying my guitar was ready, I thought that given the specs it might get a picture posted on facebook... and there were two! :D
Just a couple more days to wait...

And I WILL definitely have to order another one with trem soon! :mrgreen:

Well, there she is. Received yesterday morning, a beauty and a real pleasure to play. The weather is really gloomy so I didn't really take pics yet, I'm waiting for some sun!
