    Hey all,

    Received my newest Kiesel Vader in the mail a couple weeks ago and wanted to give it time to play and get adjusted before I posted about it.

    Specs:
    Swamp ash body
    Macasar top with clear satin matte finish
    Ebony fretboard
    Walnut neck w/ mahogany stripe and tung oil finish
    Summer ash treatment on back
    Tamarind wood knobs
    Stainless steel frets

    I am 100% in love with this bass. This is the holy grail for me. Unbelievably comfortable to play (tung oil neck works wonders) and light/compact but provides any tone possibilities I want to achieve.

    Thanks for looking!

    Excellent choices in appointments, very tasteful. For my tastes, that's the best-looking Kiesel bass I've seen in a long time.

    I always loved the natural wood finish, but this headless guitars seems to me unfinished, like something is missing.
