    This is actually my favorite headstock of theirs. Looks good on most models. IMO I just wish the point came out another half inch or so further.

    Unpopular Opinion: The Vanguard actually looks pretty cool with certain finishes.

    I really like the vanquish myself. Especially the one SteveTerreberry has; it’s gorgeous.

    Vanquish, yeah. I knew it was something like that. :lol:

    The solid finish, fanned models look pretty great.

    I've had this guitar for a little under a week and I love it. I'm not really going to post an NGD thread but I'll at least post in here

    Also I just realized there is a typo at the end of the video.... damn it lol.

    It's like a guitar designed to be my own personal hell.

    The funniest part was when Jeff was doing a live walkthrough about a month ago, he stumbled upon this guitar and tried his hardest to play it off as if it was super "rad".

    I'm usually one to be against the whole Kiesel hate thing.... but my god this guitar is the guitar of my nightmares. At the same time, it's not really Kiesel's fault, it's who ever ordered the thing.

    I thought STDs were supposed to be either:
    A) Affordable
    B) Sexy
    I would never pay that much for an STD. I prefer mine for free.

    WOW.
    That is hands DOWN the coolest Kiesel I've ever seen. It looks like someone took a clean RG3120, improved it with a hardtail, and turned it up past 11 straight to 12.
    I'm pretty firmly in the anti-Kiesel camp but game recognizes game and that is one sensual axe.

    Hardtails aren't improvements.
