    It's weird because from what i've seen of jeff's personal guitars he doesn't have bad taste, but the second he gets to work he creates abominations like these or the nuclear melon.

    Why would anyone dye a pale moon ebony? People choose them for that exact aesthetic for crying out loud!

    I kid you not, I felt actual physical pain in my eyes when I saw the blue/orange abomination.

    And then, it got worse. I may vomit

    When I first scrolled down, I kind of liked the aesthetic for 0.2 s until I scrolled far enough to see the bevel. That bevel just totally ruins everything that's going on there.

    Looking at Kiesel finishes is a lot like listening to Protest the Hero. There's some good stuff in there, but they never seem to give it enough focus before jumping abruptly to something entirely different.

    That is an insult to Protest the Hero. Now if you'd said Between the Buried and Me, I would agree.

    Eh... no. The horns look horrendous, and the headstock is awful too.

    I’m with Nightbroiler on this: I dig it. I’ve actually wanted to try out an Esoterik for the last four years or so, but I’m just not into the blacker-than-black br00tul thing; and would end up modding the thing too far away from its intended concept.

    Im fairly indifferent, not for me but it looks pretty cool. However is it just me or does the finish look a little rough by the neck pickup?

    It looks like an anorexic WMI Korea build with moles or skin tags. Not a fan of the electronics layout, or the carve, or the pickups...
