    I ordered this bass about 10 weeks ago and I am so stoked to actually have it now. I am a bit of an only child that can hardly wait for things. It's a B25, fretless with lines, Radium Humbuckers, black hardware, and I sent in a set of D'addario tapes to replace the stock strings. It plays sweet with the best action I've ever seen on a bass. I am a super fan of the craftsmanship. Photo's only go so far. I have yet to plug it in to an amp, but will tonight. I had it shipped to work so that I didn't have to chase it down or play tag. A few photos of the new baby. Haven't given her a name yet, but she'll get one soon enough.

    Oh my!
     
  5. Holy sexyness, Batman! That is one SHARP bass! Those Brian Bromberg basses are excellent, if anything, because of the ergonomics: radiused pickups, tuner placement, etc. Congratulations! Enjoy!

    That color and grain are just unreal.

    Can you post a pic of the spec/build sheet?

  9. So beautiful! I've been following this as well as a few others on the Kiesel forums. I'm happy for you that it's arrived. That is some sexy quilt! The grain shows quite well on the back as well. This is one of the more attractive Brombergs that I've seen... and that's saying something. I haven't seen a bad one yet. That green quilted moss looks like it was painstakingly painted by hand. What a work of art!

    Please keep us posted and report back. I'm curious as to how it sounds.

    I also had my name engraved on the truss rod cover and I got the soft case. I thought I'd replace the soft case with my hard shell Gator Case, but now I am not so sure. The soft case is really nice. I have options.

    I played it at practice last night and absolutely love it. The fit and finish is better than anything I have ever played. I have a lot of basses, certainly don't NEED any, but I think I may have to have another-- in addition to the JB5 that should ship this week. :hyper: I also had them install a set of D'addario tapes that I sent in. Maybe it's the radium pups, maybe it's the neck through, maybe it's the strings, or maybe it's all of the above, but this bass has great growl and that really wonderful fretless mwah-- love it. I played it for about an hour this morning while drinking coffee and had a really hard time putting it down. I cant say enough good things about it. :bassist:

    First, thanks for the compliments. I find it beautiful too. Oddly enough, the question that has been asked every time someone new sees it is something along the lines of this. Is that painted or stained? Kiesel does amazing things with wood. I added a few other comments about playing/tone in the previous posts. It's a wonderful instrument to be sure.

    I'd love to hear how that sounds. Any chance of getting an audio/video clip? The tapes look great over that board.

    Despite some na-sayers out there, my Carvins (PB-4 & PB-5) have incredible tone and playability! AND you get to order it custom to your own list of specifications! Win-Win! Congrats!
