    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:

    This specimen was custom made for a fella on this board, and I was lucky enough to snag it from him. It’s quite honestly the finest instrument I’ve ever played, beyond my ESP Custom Shop and J Customs over the years. It’s basically my dream guitar except for a couple of tiny, tiny details, so I’ve decided to have Kiesel make me a replica of this with the little detail switches. Literally the only reason I’d ever let this go and if I could keep both, you bet I would.

    This thing plays unbelievably well. The spec choices were absolutely masterful. The finish is unreal! And the piezo is far superior to my RG2027x and RG7cst; just way better clarity and a more balanced overall EQ.


    There’s a NGD post from a few years ago on this board where you can read more about it: https://www.sevenstring.org/threads/ngd-kiesel-edition-k8-the-first-“arctic.299224/

    In a nutshell, here’s the specs. You can find other validating lists of them on the original NGD post and on some kiese ads as well.

    Absolutely gorgeous Kiesel DC800 KM8 guitar made by Jeff Kiesel himself - this is literally 1 of 1. Never played outside of my home studio (smoke free environment). Impeccable condition, not a single wear mark. Sounds absolutely amazing with piezo, magnetics or mixed.

    Not to clog up the thread, but what are the details you don’t like, what that you plan to change for the next build?

    Honestly, the only thing I’m going to change is the color. I’d like this exact guitar, but in green. Honestly, I’d like to have both to compliment one another but just can’t right now. Not clogging the thread at all, my friend!

    Bump!

    Would also work something out for an Ibanez RG7680 LTD-1 or 7681!
