NGD - White Wash Solo

Postby helldorado » Thu Jun 30, 2022 2:06 pm

It's here, it's great. I love how white wash in raw tone feels almost relic'd, or at least kind of rustic. I haven't had a chance to plug it in, but unplugged, it sounds and feels great. Super resonant. Bolt-on, w/ raw tone ash and roasted maple is a great combo every time I get it.

Only thing I would list as a drawback is questioning whether the upgrade to the master grade flamed maple worth the cost of entry? It was great as a one time splurge, but I don't think I would do it again. It's lovely, but it's non-functional. The cost for the roasted flamed maple neck, board, and then upgrade to master grade was almost $1470 charge in total. It wouldn't sound or play any different if I saved the $1300 extra it cost over regular roasted maple and then the guitar would've been under $2k.

No "regrats" going all in, just my thoughts and why my in-process Delos is regular roasted maple w/ a roasted birdseye board. 8)

Looks like tactile bliss, and that neck…daaang.

I wonder if they’d consider angling that selector switch as a custom control option.

I can't wait to hear your review of it plugged in.

Greg looking guitar. The white wash finish with the roasted maple neck looks super cool. The reverse headstock with white button tuners is a nice touch. The flame on the back of the neck is remarkable. Kiesel can really make some cool guitars.

congrats! looks like a great axe.

The flamed maple neck is cray. Agree that the ticket price is very steep, but yeah, i would do it as a one time thing too.

Now that I actually own a flamed maple neck (though not a Kiesel), I better understand the appeal. I can see that being the only "upgrade" I might put on a new build - you actually get to LOOK at it while you're playing.
