Well, welcome to the Forum!

Also, if I didn't know better, I'd say that's an HAN finish on that board. Am I right? Also, how does she sound/what's her voice like? Lastly, which strings did you put on?

:applause:


It's definitely a HAN finish. The neck is basically my new mirror now :D She sounds fantastic, very warm, with a noticeable midrange. Even a light touch produces that lovely mwah sound. I put on a standard set of Carvin's Stainless Steel strings. Best money ever spent :lol:

Sweetness! That HAN was the first thing that jumped out at me! Down the road consider a youtube soundsample for us - Carvin and the BBS deserve more of those, IMO.

Here's a picture of me playing my LB70f. Swamp ash body, maple neck, traditional 2x2 headstock. I was a bit surprised the picture was being taken! Love this bass, still plays like its new!
This is my first post to the forum, hope it turns out!?

Someone had posted a fretless headless Kiesel guitar, either a Vader or one of the two new ones Z/O. Looked cool and super fun to play. I'd love to have a fretless guitar again.

If anyone is curious what one of these rarities sound like, you're welcome:

Here is a pic of my two fretless Carvin/Kiesels from viewtopic.php?t=45772

Atom Lung posts in the Kiesel group on FB frequently, I think he has 3 fretless guitars from Kiesel.
