    The top and stain are definitely cool, but I'm willing to bet there's some photography to thank for the contrast/saturation.

    Also, my bad: it's $400 off the original price. I think they changed the price last night. So, officially that guitar is $5600. If you're a California resident, you're looking at over $6100 to get a new guitar like that. Can you imagine what Daemoness could do for $6100? Dang....

    They list it there on the website, sure, but I guarantee if it sells it'll be from their store or at NAMM.

    The "no returns" stops people from buying a $5,000+ guitar and then returning it over and over again. For what it's worth, my local mom and pop will let you return a Squire, but they have no return on their Suhrs and high-end PRSs.

    True, but the description says there are scratches, dents, and signs of wear, as it's a used instrument. For me, unless I could either play it or at least know what and where these flaws are, I'd be worried about spending that kind of money.

    Too bad it's not left handed with Misha's name attached. We all know there's at least one buyer in that case.

    Hmmmm... Hard choice. I mean... A quality instrument sounds good, but come on... It's got scratches, AND it was owned by someone sort of famous. No returns!? ....ing sign me RIGHT up. I'll take the Kiesel! /sarcasm

    If only the wait times weren't 3+ years :wallbash:

    I would drop 5 grand on a Masterbuilt Jackson but I would not on a Kiesel even if you can get much more from Kiesel edition than you can from a Jackson. I love my Aries 7 however but still, a Jackson is something else.

    We should start a Kickstarter to buy that guitar. Then burn it. On live stream

    Implying that Kiesel gives a crap about the guitar after being paid handsomely for it. :nuts:

    My masterbuilt Jackson King V took 8 months so it's not always that long of a wait. I also know that I got lucky with that build time.

    Yeah, the best punishment for creating that abomination is that it sits there for decades and never sells.

    Good to know. I wonder if there is any room for negotiation for the fees.

    It'd bruise Jeff's fragile ego. He'd blacklist everyone who participated, which would be worth it to me. :lol:

    Jeff's fragile ego is why he's going to be continually reading this thread and looking to ban anyone he suspects (regardless of grounding) that they're just going to report back to SSO.

    Wow, look how far this thread has run. If there's one thing that unites people on sevenstring, it's complaining about someone in an attempt to ruin their reputation, even if they have a terrific track record, and especially if you're not involved directly.

    I guess it's what happen when you have a good reputation and start doing bull..... your reputation takes a hit.
