    You just made me change my order which was already pretty similar to this. Went from black pickups to cream, stainless frets to gold, and dropped the trans-black back and sides that I had planned. The only other differences is that mine is an 8, have alder wings, ebony back plate, purple heart stripes in the neck with satin finish and black logo and inlays. Oh, and it's chambered.
    Edit: Oh, and black veneer between top and body.

    Hope it comes out as good as this!! :bowdown:

    Theres still some spots left in the run! Someone build something before I order a 2nd one. That vader neck is insane, I hope my neck looks as amazing as that, glad I went with the royal ebony.

    it's called Kiesel Vader Guitar and Bass Owners. I can talk to the owner but from what I saw it was black limba wings, black limba neck with either maple or white limba stringers, royal ebony fretboard, ziricote top.

    I got in on the Aries run. Been wanting the 26.5" scale version, but was holding off hoping they'd add a non-locking trem as an option, but decided I could deal with the Floyd for the good price on the sparkle finish. Went with aqua sparkle, chrome hardware, HSH pickups in white, rosewood board, MoP offset inlays, and sprung for the 5-piece neck as well. Come on February!!

    Beauty!

    I'm picking up my first Vader in a few hours from the Fedex Office. I'm so excited! I'll smother this thread with some Kiesel love when I unbox it :)
