    Cant we somewhat forgive Kiesel on the basis that most of their weird color schemes are requested by customers? I know he goes overboard when making them himself...but like 95% of Kiesels are just following the color requests, no?

    Except they promoted this specific guitar on their Facebook as part of Jeff's "Top 24" guitars of 2017. Can't believe he didn't call it his Raddest of 2017 list. Talk about missed opportunity.

    Hmmm maybe it plays really well or it was hard to do that finish. Idk. I guess I'm just being the devil's advocate now. Like those jazz guys who say "You don't dislike it, you just don't understand it". (I am also sometimes guilty of saying things like this to people about metal and harsh vox)

    Anyway yeah that finish is atrocious, Kiesel's solid color guitars are definitely their strong suit.

    Jeff can show restraint from time to time, and dare I say it even has some good color schemes/fades here and there, but that guitars is fucking vile. I say that as a huge fan of obnoxiously painted/stained guitars, like this one by Aviator guitars:

    clearly you haven't been hanging around some of these threads before, we've been ripping on certain kiesels for a loooong time. I'm a big fan of most kiesels, but for every 15-20 nice looking guitars they throw in some horrendous ones like the radioactive watermelon guitar/ the infamous bukkake burst.

    ^this one could have almost been cool if they didn't do the green fretboard/pink stripes on the neck

    The sploogeburst/ghostlyburst guitars look like someone took a spray paint can around the edges and thought it was clever.

    You know it’s clever because you’re a hater if you don’t.

    Frankly, I'll take a simple 80s ESP or Charvel strat any day. Give it a simple bicycle spray job, or perhaps a cool neon color, and let that be that.

    Remember how cool it was to see George Lynch's bengal tiger paint job? Randy's polka dot V? Or Warren DeMartini's "trop vite de vivre, trop jeune de mourire" guitar? Hell, I'd even like something very plain and simple like Jake E Lee's white "Charvel." Those were cool guitars. The fucking watermelonburst and sploogeburst are not only ugly, but mostly come off as really bad gags. All of that said, I hope the owners are happy with their purchase, but they look absolutely silly.

    "Can I have tabs for what you just played?"
    <plugs guitar into computer and loads paper into guitar>
    "Thanks"

    :lol:

    I'd actually love to see a video of that.

    Oh wait..



    (fast forward to 11:20)

    Looks like it doesn't work. The guy in the video keeps saying it works, but I don't believe him. :lol: Still a "nifty" concept, though.
