I'm a spanish fan of Kiesel that is about to join the family soon
I am pretty sure about the specs that I want on my first build, that will be:
Aries A6X 6 string with Hipshot/Kiesel tremolo system
LMB - Maple Neck/Black Limba Body
CG - Clear Gloss Finish (Standard)
FDN - Deep Nightburst Flame
5ML - 5-Piece Maple Neck w/ 2 Black Limba Stripes
THNN - Thinner Neck Profile
6IN - Pointed Straight 6 Inline Headstock (Standard)
FPH - Flamed Maple Headstock Matches Body Finish
FMF - Flamed Maple Fingerboard (Tung-Oiled)
IKSD - 12th Fret K Logo w/ Staggered Offset Dots
IA - Abalone Inlay Material
R20 - 20in Fretboard Radius (N/A w/ Floyd Rose)
BC - Black Hardware
But then my eyes catch this photo
that is very close to what I want but with purpleheart fretboard. And I must say that is rad!
My concern is that I am confident about the care of a maple fretboard (got some guitars already with it) but I have no idea about the purpleheart. I made a little research and all I get is that the purpleheart finally turns brown, and that is what fear most, to lose that purple look.
So I beg for any advice from anyone who already dealt with purpleheart as fretboard, in terms of caring and how to preserve the color, to make sure I make the right choice.
Thank you all fellas!
