    Well after 9 weeks here it is. I went with the alder body, maple neck, Ebony fretboard, translucent honey burst. Matching headstock came standard. Pearl diamond inlays, and I went passive.

    First I want to say CONGRATS!!!! Beautiful bass, I've been trying to make up my mind if I want to order a LB76 from Kiesel, is your setup on your bass as far as electronics is it passive or passive/active?
    Again CONGRATS!!!! on your new Kiesel.

    dang, that's fancy enuf! you got a pretty bass and some good taste.
     
  8. Nice bass! I spec'd out an LB75 last night just for s's and g's and that was one of the colors I picked out. Kiesel has the best color choices available IMO

    It's a beauty Clark!

    I have two carvin basses, and I love them both. My B4 is the nicest playing bass I've ever come across.

    I really love their color selection. It makes it hard to pick one.

  12. My B5 is the same. It's almost always my go-to bass, unless I take my 89 LB75.

    Very nice.

    J99 or stacked humbucker pickups?
    Tung oil neck?

    Nice! How about posting some sound clips? Been curious about building one myself.

    Congrats on your new bass. May it serve you well.

    I, for one, appreciate the understated elegance of this instrument.

    Play it in good health and enjoy.

    Thanks ajkula, I think the LB70 is Kiesel's hidden gem.

    Super nice!!

    You know I GAS and GAS and GAS for stuff, and then just think stuff it; a nice LB70 would just do everything you'd ever need.
