Neck-Through Aries Run Builds!

Postby helldorado » Tue Apr 06, 2021 4:08 pm

If anybody else wants to post up their build specs from the Aries neck-through run, let's do it here so we can see what everybody got!

With Jeff agreeing to add the 26.5" scale, this become the first run that I was actually interested in. And I felt a little obligated to get in since he did accommodate me on the request. :lol: I'm excited, peeps purple was on my hit-list for adding more color to my collection, and I've never had a Kiesel with a nice multi-piece neck or pale moon ebony board. :D

Stage 1 Neck-Through Aries 6
- Metallic Lavender
- Raw tone stain finish
- Swamp Ash Body
- Hipshot Fixed Bridge
- 26.5" Scale Length
- Reverse Pointed Angled 6 String Headstock
- Swamp Ash Headstock Overlay
- 3-Piece Walnut Neck w/ 1 Purple Heart Stripe
- Palemoon Ebony Fingerboard
- Tung Oil Neck
- 14" Fingerboard Radius
- No Top Inlays - Side Dots Only
- Stainless Med-Jumbo Frets
- Black Logo
- Black Pickup Coils
- Delete Neck Pickup
- Custom Controls (delete tone, move volume to tone)
- Kiesel M12SD Passive Bridge Pickup
- Black Pickup Poles
- Black Hardware
- Black Ultimate Soft Guitar Case

For a hot minute I thought about going with KRG accents on the pickup, logo and inlays but decided to keep everything monochromatic. It turns out Jeff personally ordered a stage 1 build in metallic lavender with the pale moon board and KRG accents. I don't know if we would've had identical guitars, but they would've been close.

Thanks! I got it with the intent of giving it a shake and seeing how it does since I had the M22SD in my DC127 to start. Those are long gone, but I can see how it compares against a couple other really aggressive pickup options I have in similarly tuned guitars.

At best, I love it and it stays. At worst, I tried it out and I'll throw in something else purple-ish. Maybe get BK to do a custom lavender camo and battleworn Aftermath.
