    Pics up after I get it

    27" scale length
    Seafoam green
    stock lithium pups in cream
    chrome hardware
    ebony fretboard/no inlays only side dots

    Pretty bare bones, as I wanted to keep the cost down. First time ordering from them, so I wanna get some feedback from other Kiesel users. They say turn around is 10-12 weeks, and I wanna get some feed back on how those stock lithiums sound

    They are finishing stuff as early as 6 weeks, not saying yours will be done that quick but the more basic build tend to move faster from what I have seen. I have a couple of carvin dc800s i picked up used and love them. I ordered a 7 string delos which is my first, and it should be done in the next week or so. I went with a throium in the bridge and the lithium neck. You should check out the Kiesel guitars facebook page. There are a number of videos with guitars that have the lithium pickups.

    Damn 6 weeks for basically stock guitars isnt bad. I dont expect to get it that soon though. The Delos is a sick strat 7 string. I dig it a lot

    They're usually pretty accurate with time estimates. Some people get them quicker, I got one slightly later. Might go quicker for you if you didn't go crazy with the options. I actually love the pickups. My vader had them, and it is/was my favorite playing/sounding guitar. Massive regret selling that guitar. Damn life getting in the way.

    The things that help guitars get finished quickly (or at kart more so than the other options) are:
    Bolt-on
    Headless
    Tung oil neck
    Tung oil or raw-tone-satin-finished body.

    The ones I remember seeing complete in 6-7 weeks lately were all 4 of those features.

    Mine was a basic build, I got it in 8 weeks. I had some issues so I had to send it back for repair, that took another month. I love the lithium pickups!

    I have a 7 string vader with lithiums and they sound pretty good to me. I ended up getting the guitar a little quicker than they quoted me but that was probably because it was part of a run they were doing.

    As long as you didn't jinx it by getting an option 50, you should be golden.
