    Kiesel is the "Popeye's Chicken" of the guitar world.

    It's tasty and cheap, but you might get shot while waiting in line.

    I swear that guitarists are the absolute worst at looking out for themselves. "Hey guys, my guitar has issues that it shouldn't have, and customer service hangs up on me. This is fine, right? I don't think I should get what I pay for."

    No wonder scammers love the musical instrument market.

    Jeff says if I complain online, I won't get anything in the future. I guess I better accept whatever half assed slop they serve me at a premium price.

    I bought a used Kiesel off a very honest, up front seller on Reverb. Aside from the stock pups which aren't bad, just aren't my thing, I really like that guitar. That said, it just seems to me that there are enough Kiesels out there right now that unless you just have to have some really "out there" specs on yours that you could easily find a good one used and never have to deal directly with Kiesel.

    Mike jones basically told you to F off and you were cool with it.

    If there’s any BS here it’s that :lol:

    You can't fire me because I quit!

    You can't quit because I already fired you!

    No, I already quit so you can't fire me.

    There is a big diff between being told to F off and being hung up on! afterwords a custom service rep asked me to call him directly which I did, he apologized for the hang-up and he sent me free Kiesel merch!

    So yeah I was cool with it BUT what I'm not cool with is someone trolling for a rise by S#@$ talked the guitar I own with complete nonsense about the brand of guitar, That's a trolling move if there ever was one IMHO, BUT that's just me...

    That's not good you were treated that way but that wasn't my experience, I got a stellar guitar at a good price and I still complained about a dew little things and after that, they have still remained responsive to emails and I requested some of the wire they used to wire my guitar and they sent me some free of charge...

    I guess they must be getting better at dealing with people because all the S#@$ talking I'm reading here like "half assed slop" is just more nonsence because as many even here have said the guitars have not been the issue, It's trolling plain and simple just looking for a rise OR it's just butt hurt sour grapes...

    The typical response would be something like "oh yea well your brand of guitar is total garbage for way too much money" but I'm not going to drag some guitar builder into the mud like some do.

    If this is just some mindless bashing thread in lew of a place to share REAL experiences people have had then I'll leave you all to bash away if that's what you enjoy doing because I'm not sticking around a bash fest... I've got better things to do...

    Yea, it's basically the difference between Mike thinking to himself, "Man, fuck this guy", and Mike saying aloud "Man, fuck this guy".

    I bought one off an SSO'er here and had the same experience. He was upfront as well. I wouldn't have spec'd it 100% the way he did, but probably 90% so close enough.

    So mike sucks, there's no getting around that! but do I condemn an entire brand because of the actions of one a$$hole, for me, the answer was no, I just don't talk to that clown anymore and instead I call Joe Stone or email him directly and he takes call of what I need, what I don't do is get all butt hurt and go around talking #$@#@$ about the whole company over one dimwit there...

    I understand legitimate hate over something they've actually done BUT just saying @#$% like they are "overpriced garbage" is not only untrue, it's not helpful to anyone and it pisses off people who have done nothing to anyone here that own one of their guitar! and for what???

    "I've got better things to do..." Apparently not, because I'm sure most of your posts are in this thread.

    I wish Kiesel had a headless bass that was straight-scale 35 inches. :(
