    Hey all!
    Recently got this beauty and couldn't be happier! It's a Kiesel 7-string guitar in Aquaburst with a burled maple top, birdseye maple Kiesel-treated fingerboard and a v-burst spray pattern applied to the finish on the topwood.
    Some highlight pictures are below, for a full album check here: https://imgur.com/gallery/MeniGPY

    The guitar reached here in Australia before the expected completion date of the guitar - very prompt work by the team! Haven't found a single thing about it that I haven't liked, nor was there anything that felt low-quality.
    I also put together a fun little unboxing video with the help of my loving girlfriend:

    I'll certainly do some recording soon and put this baby to the test!

    I'm normally not a fan of the more over-the-top guitars coming out of Kiesel, but this just works

    Thanks for the lovely comments all! :)

    I know exactly what you mean & feel the same way!


    Its got Kiesel Lithium pickups :) they sound good! Quite bright, but works well for the seventh string with a mahogany body.

    Hey all!
    I posted some pics about my new Kiesel last week, and thought it would be good to follow up with some audio. So I recorded a cover of Through the Fire and Flames, as that song has it all! Cleans at the start, divebombs, pick scrapes, general shredding, sweeps, taps, pickup switching, wah pedal, pitch shifting... Enough of the good stuff to put this new beast to the test ;)

    Hope you enjoy!


    I think the bright sound of the Kiesel Lithiums goes well with the mahogany body. I had heard mixed reviews about them in the past but I'm happy with the way this turned out. The guitar is being played through a Line6 Pod HD500X as well, so nothing super expensive or fancy.

    Also, if posting covers is in any way against the rules, I apologise and can close the thread immediately. Just sharing some new guitar hype!

    What a pain in the ass that looks like it was to figure out how play the video game sounding things in that song note for note! Stellar performance!

    Thank you kindly!

    Hahaha love the way you put it. Yeah, was a little, thankfully the band has documented a lot of their special techniques on YouTube.

    Cheers to you both!!
