I’m planning my first Kiesel build and I think I have all the spec’s down but I would like any advice from you all with more experience in case I am missing something. I am currently planning on going with a vanquish model with a mahogany body (sustain), maple neck, ebony fretboard, Ebony headstock, satin matte finish, black hardware, Holdsworth pickups and in the tobacco burst finish. Let me know anything about your experiences, what you might consider changing and why. Thanks.

Kiesel's is a transparent yellow, with an opaque black paint burst edge. Many other companies seem to use warm browns or reds in the bursts, or the burst edges are a bit transparent. I'm not saying that you aren't allowed to like Kiesel's just because it's different, but thought it was worth mentioning.
Kiesel's "seafoam green" is also quite different from a lot of other companies' seafoam green.
If you google "kiesel tobacco vanquish", there's one example of it, done with the thin satin "raw tone" clear top coat finish.
