    it's like the perfect 8 string single cut headless shape, IMO. But just not a fan of it with the 6 strings, which is pretty much all I play anymore.

    I'm not a fan of the shape at all. BUT, I did see Sims Cashion in the demo video, and that was totally worth it. That dude rips! I want to know what he's playing through in the vid, because I love that tone.

    It doesn't look quite right, but its the closest to being interested in Kiesel guitars I've been in a while.

    At first, watching the video, I was thinking of course he's adding a bevel, that's what Kiesel does. Then I realised it was a genius idea and it would flow into the contour for the tuners. Then I saw the 8 string version. So close.

    Looks so much like David Maxim Micic’s Wood Guerilla guitar (which I love). Makes me wish it had a headstock tho.. definitely the most I’ve like a Kiesel ever. Also the raw tone pink looks sick

    I would have been all for this if it wasn't for the tele shaped part of the body. I can't stand that les paul/tele shape, I need two points. Also not a headless fan, but all in all it's a pretty cool guitar, just not my cup of tea. I wonder if they have any other models to show off at NAMM, although I really doubt it.

    According to Jeff, Zeus is based on SCB.

    I love how in their instagram post they refer to Jeff as "the bevel master" :lol:

    His bevelness needs to sit on these designs just a bit longer. This one is actually fairly interesting, but just misses the mark.

    When I thought the Tosin would be the ugliest guitar shape I’d ever seen...

    I was on the waiting list for a Ormsby goliath but that will be removed quick. Absolutely love the one Simon got. I’m so getting one of these on graphite finish!

    I like it a lot more than the Vader. If they would chop out 1/2” from the center on the 6 string, I think it would make all the difference. But still pretty cool.
