Wew, guitar is redirected at last minute. Crisis averted I guess.
You guys are good.
I've been pretty interested in a super simple Osiris build for awhile and finally got around to ordering it. Do you guys know if they'll actually do the black logo on a black body like I've spec'd? I've never seen a finished guitar with it so I'm guessing they'll ask me to change it.

I have seen others in the past. So I assume they will still build them.
I know they used tho, but I seem to remember them changing a couple years ago.
Two alts: 1) their newer black mirror chrome or whatever they call it logo, or 2) the black-and-white drop shadow, to minimize it.
I've ordered white on white and a black on moss green/black limba top, both are nearly invisible, and no one said anything to me.
Black on black logo was a no go. They advised doing black on white drop shadow which is fine with me. I can always remove it if it looks bad. Curious to see if it takes the full 3 months, I've seen mention of others getting super basic builds much faster.
It almost doesn't really seem to be how 'basic' a build is, more about a couple specific aspects that speed up production:
1: headless guitars (no headstock finish work, all of the headless tuners are installed along with the bridge, etc).
2: Bolt-on necks)
3: Tung oil necks (much quicker cure time)
4: Tung oil or Raw Tone Satin Finish bodies (much quicker cure time, and many fewer coats)
5: No tops
Ordered a Vader multiscale 8 the 14th of April with pretty basic specs: 5p neck, solid gloss finish, satin neck and I'm still waiting.
According to their website building time IS about 10-12 weeks.
So, Kiesel's done a few builds where they filled in larger voids in buckey burl tops with glowing resin, and then the last couple days have showed off two builds with metallic/sparkle resin.
This was a post from today:
"Did you know my Metal Flake Infused option is not just for the natural voids in the wood?"
Soooooo not my thing, but it's certainly interesting. Put a normal neck/fretboard on it, and turn the metal flake either white or black...then *maybe*.
It's certainly unique, though.
Mother of god, that thing is ugly!
If Bruce Springsteen was a drag queen, perhaps?
If they name it, I'm sure it'll be someting like " 'merica II"
As a reminder, this is " 'merica":
That neck is vulgar.
At Summer NAMM in Nashville, it'll either be award-winning, or their booth will be burned down. I honestly have no idea.
I could give the body a pass in a 1973 fashion sense. That neck though....this is a family board so won't say what it looks like.
That's exactly what I was thinking, too. That era. Sort of "hippie meets disco" in a weird way.
I wouldn't even mind the blue neck and red headstock, if the fretboard were just something like a plain maple, or birdseye maple, with no color.
Actually, more like the start of Glam Country like Dolly Parton. "Rhinestone Cowboy."
Bronco Billy too.
I was thinking it's the perfect signature model for the secret lovechild of Brad Paisley and Paul Gilbert!
