Is roasted maple no longer an option for basses?

I only remember seeing it in the builder for the JB basses, and it is still there. I could not tell you if it was actually formerly in any of the other online builders… so all I can say is that it still is available on the JB.

I thought it was an option for the headless basses, but I could be confusing that with the JB.

Welcome to the Kiesel forum!

Not sure if you already know this but it appears there's a $200 restocking fee for a roasted maple neck. I see this on the in stock page. Just something to be aware of.

Yeah, you're right. That was one of the incentives on the crackle/splatter run. I wonder if it's one of the options one would have to call in for a build.

Roasted maple is available for all bolt-on necks. Maybe for Vader.

All basses can be ordered with a roasted maple fretboard.

Bolt-ons and headless models only IIRC, plus set necks on guitars. They couldn't get blanks long enough for a neck-through bass I think.

Pretty sure that it was the length of the necks being the issue, they were too long to fit in the over (kiln?)
