    Great condition Kiesel Vanquish V59K.
    Made in the USA. The sexiest bass I've ever owned and played.
    18V preamp.
    34" scale. The neck is amazing!
    Low action with zero buzz.
    24 frets
    Alder body, ebony fretboard with custom red block inlays, phosphorous side dots glow in the dark.
    Weighs about 9.25 lbs.
    The pickups are radium humbuckers.
    Additional strap button was installed for use with Duo Strap, but doesn't get in the way when used with a regular strap.
    Regular + D-tuner (Gotoh) included.
    Minimal wear, a little finish scratch by one of the battery holders.
    $1600+ custom build.
    Comes with a hard/soft gigbag.
    Currently strung with DR Lo-Riders.

    Phone pictures don't do the justice, that red is really cool, very "pearly" with cool overtones depending on how it catches the light.

    $1150 shipped (ConUS/ PayPal)

    Trade interests: Ibanez EHB (5 string), Lakland 55-02 and Roscoe Beck V (+ cash from me). But let me know what you have, you never know...

    Sweet looking bass!

    I recently bought a bass from isky earlier this year and I can tell you that he's a really good dude. So buy with confidence.

    Good luck with the sale!

    Sale is still my priority.
    But I'd trade for Roscoe Beck V.

    I don't have experience with Nordstrands, but had Barts on many basses before. These pickups are as quiet and clear as Bartolinis, imo.

    That would require some cash on your part.
