    The cream filling is even glow-in-the-dark.

    That Kiesel Zeus was a part of a small batch of 5. It seemed like they got ahold of some glow-in-the-dark resin, had some Buckeye that would otherwise have been scrapped, and made 5 guitars. My guess is that they were practice for the Felix Martin 16-string they made him.

    An additional layer of amusing: they are also painted in a trans color-shift paint on top of the buckeye and glow-in-the-dark resin. The paint works best over black, so because everything is so light, it's hard to see this color shift paint, but it's there.

    Here was a 2nd one from that same batch (and yes: it sold):

    I think Kiesel just spins a wheel for finishes, honestly. It's like the price is right, you might get a nickel, a dollar, or you might spin too many times and get disqualified :lol:

    They are definitely an interesting company. You get some like this, where it's experiementations from the factory that they are willing to sell (or who knows...maybe this was a group decision and they all thought it would be awsome), or then you read the comments to their posts and you see people asking, "Can you do a black-to-red-to-greed color-shift crackle, over a white, purple and pink splatter, with bright green pickup covers and knobs? With an orange-painted roasted maple neck. Oh, and can you also put dark trans purple over figured koa on a headstock on this headless model? I want a Vader, but hate headless. Even if it's a "fake" headstock."

    Probably so that you see colors like the surface of a bubble at certain angles light hits it. On a stage under bright lights or in the dark when glowing, completely pointless. Cool, but really only noticeable to the player. Which, is fine I guess. I don't think that photographs will ever do it justice.

    I'm wondering if whoever plays this is righty, lefty or just an alien with tentacles.

    Aside from being an 8-string, I actually kinda like it.

    Then again I am an alien with tentacles.
