Carvin/Kiesel Build # 5 - “Fine Espresso”

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TheOxRocks, May 10, 2019.


  1. So after moving from New York to Florida and spending the past four months re-carpeting and generally re-tooling the apartment to our liking, as well as getting used to an entirely new neighborhood and environment... THIS is what my beautiful, generous wife decides I need as a combined Father's Day/anniversary gift: Carvin/Kiesel build # 5, "Fine Espresso".

    After telling her how much it would cost, I got the usual response: "Order it before I change my mind."

    Expected arrival date: mid- to late-August.

  2. Sounds/looks like it'll be a great bass. I'm a Carvin/Kiesel fan, for sure. Looking forward to seeing your pics when you get it. :thumbsup:
     
  3. Bass nickname changed to “Fine Espresso” after some discussion on the Kiesel message boards.

    Kiesel #5? Nice!!!

    It sounds like it’s going to be a beautiful instrument!!!

    I received my first Kiesel about two weeks ago and I’m really happy with it. Still not sure about keeping the strings that came on it, but I LOVE the bass.

    Please post pics when it arrives. NOW GOOD LUCK WITH THE WAIT!!!:roflmao::thumbsup:
