Looks.... Oddly familiar
Eh, the model has been in development for months, and they've built other ones similar. Not too surprised.
Does it look like another luthier's build? I don't recognize it from anything else.
I'm honestly not sure what other guitar you are talking about. It's a pretty standard looking burled maple guitar. Can we seriously chill out on the whole "hate on Kiesel" circle jerk? It seriously just gets annoying at this point.
Looks like a Kiesel to me.
I’m guessing the cedar body Abasi?
That'd what I was assuming they were yakking about.
I mean if anything I’d say that Frank and Tosin were inspired by Jeff’s style when building that guitar. At least that was my initial thought upon first seeing it.
Jeff Kiesel isn't inspired by bevels, bevels are inspired by Jeff Kiesel.
Maybe I haven't looked at all the Abasi stuff yet but do they have double cutaways?? Either way its a pretty standard shape and Kiesel has been lord of the bevels for a long time.
Some of their guitars are actually quite nice, I personally wont go to them just because of the horror stories I've heard I don't want to risk it, if something went wrong I would feel so stupid, but it's not he's a Nihilist or something.
Whoa another kiesel ha..
Not even worth finishing.
Not to sound guitaracist, but that's what every so-called "modern" custom/semi-custom looks like to me now.
omg guys, he even copied the white one:
Guys, I was talking about the fact it has literally the exact same color scheme, an attempt at the staggered offset dots, etc.
Dude straight up ripped it off
haha good one.
I really hope you are just being sarcastic for all of our sanity...
I think you're reaching a bit. Kiesel has been making various Vader and Aries models that look like this for a few years now (with burl top, natural back and bevel reveal).
stop it you're making me irrationally cross
I can't look at a beveled kiesel without feeling like he ripped off some knaggs guitars and presented it in the cheapest way possible. I used to drool over some of the nicely complemented woods/finishes on knaggs bevels but seeing all these kiesels with very simple bevels leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Felt the same way about seeing some of the ibanez models that soon followed.
You seem to skip over the most important concern and question!
