    So you mean a normal JB200 where it's only stained blue in the center?

    :lol:

    Just wanting to see Jeff get one of those crazy tops and add in flamed backs and all that Jazz. Ebony tops and backs or Burls. JB200 is my favourite guitar and I've always wanted to see Jeff just go loose on it, but know I can't ever afford getting a standard let alone a Kiesel Edition.

    Hey guys, just a quick note, but the $100 Multiscale Upgrade for the Vaders? That Promo ends Sunday at Midnight. If you wanted to get in on a deal, do it before then, pricing will go up after!

    What's the price going up to? At this point it'd be a bit weird if we got the same "not sure" response since it's like two days away anyway. I only have a mild interest in getting one and it won't be for a while so the full price is the way I'm gonna have to go anyway.

    The Aries price difference was $300. They never said what the new price would be...but since it's not like it's going to a whole new bridge system (like on the Aries) I wouldn'e be surprised if it's $150 or $200.

    Edit: I just checked: $200.

    I think half of the world's buckeye burl reserves now lie glued to the tops of Kiesel Aries guitars. :lol:

    Surprisingly, I do kinda like that last antique Aries! Love the earthy tones and satin look. Good job to whoever chose the color scheme. I'd wear a musk scent while playing that. In a log cabin. Very, very classy. And the 1-piece flamed top on that green Aries AM7 is pretty nuts; I would have used it differently, but that's still a very nice piece!

    The colorshift looks awesome.

    But yea, every time you put a 'K' inlay on an in stock guitar, a potential customer sheds a tear.

    Always carries the risk of not liking the final product or the woods selected. Saw a pretty cool K-series in the in stocks the other day but then damn...K inlay. Deal breaker. And does anyone apart from Jeff like it?
