In Gilbert's case, he's the kind of guy who'll play every single Ibanez model under the sun.
I'm posting this because it's kind of like a bass... The seller calls it a "Garboone"
Hey hey HEY!
The string alignment on the fretboard is frickin weird... Is that an Alibaba brand?
This one is interesting, it wants to look good. But it tried too hard and it ended up ugly. With some reworking of the design it could be cool.
nah, italian luthier
Do you want a Kiesel Vanquish or an Ibanez Fireman?
It looks like it's testifying in church.
What's the excuse for having the bridge string spacing different from what the neck implies when using individual saddles?!
... someone didn't do the proper measurements...?
Looks fine to me.
There was a Kiesel Aries that originally cost the original buyer $3414. Sometime in the next 3 years since that first purchase, it was listed on Reverb for $2899.
Somewhere between that sale (when it was listed as "flawless condition") and now, someone decided they wanted a satin-finished guitar. But not enough to actually find out how to do it, and proceeded without much thought given to the process. And by someone who also likely has commitment issues.
And now it's at a Guitar Center in Florida for $1700.
If anyone wants it, it's on Guitar Center's site in the used Kiesel guitars, and their photos conveniently don't really show this, and it's not mentioned in the description beyond "used". It's got a maple/walnut 5-piece neck, and the acoustic/piezo electronics.
Yowza. I mean, for not much over the base price of that model that's not a bad deal if you're willing to deal with how messed up it is or take on a complete refinish project.
I'm willing to bet if you called in and asked for more detailed shots you could talk them down a fair bit. Even if it's just 10% that's almost $200.
But why would you want to? There are plenty of not-as-fucked-up Kiesels out there for sale.
eww it literally looks like they took sandpaper to the guitar without taking it apart. Probably the most half assed attempt to make a gloss finish become satin I've ever seen.
Couldn't you just Meguiar's the shit out of that and get it back to near factory?
I'd suspect so.
