Guys; I'd like to join the headless club, if it's okay.
I just acquired a new Vader VB5, that was delivered this past Saturday.
I will post some photos very soon!

This is the new "Headless Horseman" that was delivered on the 22nd.
A very simple Vader VB5. Nothing fancy. Just a nice shiny all black bass!

marzzz wrote:OK, an update: It may be that the Oaks Grigsby superswitch (that I bought from StewMac and then forwarded on to Kiesel) is actually what's at fault here. I was playing the guitar last night prior to packing it up and sending back to Kiesel, when it suddenly started working properly (!?). Slightly wiggling the switch laterally (90° to the direction of usual travel) re-created the problem. I now have a call into StewMac, and if needed I will just have the switch replaced locally

Well, I see I never got back to you guys about this, but I ended up taking the guitar to a local tech (who works at Fender USA, of all places) and it turns out it was the Oaks Grigsby superswitch which was faulty. He replaced it and re-checked all of the wiring, the guitar works perfectly and is absolutely amazing now. I am literally in the process of selling off all my other guitars because I play it exclusively. Neck single coil is just great, pulling back on the tone a bit and it is close enough to a 22 fret sound for me, positions 2 and 4 have that right kind of "spanky" tone, position 3 combines neck and bridge and gives a unique sound (I have never owned a Tele so I can't compare, but I really like it as a tone choice), and I can have either the full humbucker or split it for a twangy "surf" sound in the bridge. The guitar itself has incredible sustain. Definitely glad I took the chance on an HSS Osiris, but Kiesel should make it an option because it works so well.

Problems like that are so frustrating! glad it worked out!

One of the last times I built a cmputer, I not onlt had a bad motherboard (which took forever to diagnose), but then i got a replacement which ALSO was bad!!! What are the odds! :wall: :lol:
