Just posted this in the photo gallery section of the forum as well, but here it is again for the Vader Club.
So happy this guitar is here. The build time was super fast (placed the order July 28th and got it September 16th). I asked for streaky black limba and I got exactly what I wanted. It plays amazingly, and I was a little worried about the multiscale (it's my first one), but it is so easy to play. Absolutely love it.

Anyone know if Kiesel plans on doing a Vader with a 3 single coil PU option? The split positions in my VX6 and VM7 sound killer but I'd love a set of true single coils.

I've seen a few via Kiesel's social media... I bet they sound amazing!

How does it sound? I love the idea of a S-S-S Vader!

Here's mine - all Korina, abalone blocks, big SS frets. Swapped the Lithiums for DiMarzio Gavity Storm bridge and Liquifire neck. Also started from scratch with wiring using push-pull pots and a mega switch. The vol pot cuts the inner neck coil, and the tone pot is a phase switch. Some really fantastic sounds to be had now. As a single coil, the Liquifire gives a surprisingly fine Strat sound, and both humbuckers out of phase is supa-funky. Bridge HB + SC neck gives nice rhythm sounds, which as far as I can tell would be impossible to achieve with the standard Kiesel switch.

Oh and behind it is my new Focus RS!

Great taste in guitars and cars!! Not that I'm biased at all.... had the car just over a year. It's epic :D

I've got a DC in the works currently but I'm planning on a V6X in Flamed Koa later in the year.
