NGD!!! Deep Sunsetburst CT6 HSH

Postby bob32069 » Sat Apr 10, 2021 6:02 pm

My first Kiesel

CT 6 mahogany body and neck, quilt maple top deep sunset burst finish, HSH with beryllium pickups and acoustic saddles, royal ebony fretboard, royal ebony headstock, staggered MOP fret dots, tung oil neck finish. A veritable work of art. I love the light fret board with the dark streaks. Headstock from a different and darker piece of royal ebony, contrasts beautifully with the fretboard and the quilt maple top..

Thank you to all the folks at Kiesel for their amazing workmanship and service!

Forgot to add: coil split on volume knob, tone knob push pull adds bridge pick up, so can get prs/gibson and tele pickup combos

Great look! Is that an upgraded top or standard? I'll bet she sounds even better than she plays! :coolpics: :rockon:

It's just a standard top. Can't get over how great it looks.

Thanks!

Re: NGD Part Deux!!! Deep Sunsetburst CT6 HSH

Wanted to post an update. So as it turns out the piezoacoustic part was not working. Contacted Kiesel and they made some suggestions for troubleshooting, to no avail. They had it shipped back to them and repaired something on the acoustic PCB, not sure exactly what was wrong but I received it back today and everything is now functioning properly. So I get to have a 2nd NGD today. Very satisfied with the service. Contemplating my next order...(Shhh! Don't tell my wife!)

A bummer, but glad to hear about the happy ending. :)
