I'm thinking about one of these:

But that raw tone is a MUST and it's not returnable :( If something wasn't cool I'd be screwed.

Sure is beautiful. It's a hardtail but not "metal" like the one I have. The pickguard with the chrome pups looks nice :love: Definitely not do the reversed headstock though.

Here's a review on YT.
Kiesel Delos.

It's a Kiesel. I've never had one, heard they are really good. In fact a dude down at GC let me play his and I really liked it (though his was kinda gaudy looking)

I need to ditch 4 guitars including a Caparison that look similar, but it's a one-trick-pony. Beautiful guitar.

Wan't a superstrat with a fixed bridge, high quality, 2 buckers (probably lollers? ) a 3 way switch and will probably go with the 22 fret option (I'm not a shredder)

They are hard to find. I don't want a PRS/LP (I really do prefer 25 1/2 scale) and two buckers. Don't want a tele. Need a fixed bridge.

Other than I don't want a trem on this one that's even more perfect with the roasted maple neck.

As soon as I can get some of these guitars sold I think that is the one. Thanks.

Hilarious. With the options I picked, the CS subtotal came to 1799 - 100 bucks - the 20% down payment adding up to 3,088 USD :lol:

Obviously a boo boo.

My next will probably be an LP. Will complement my others very well, I think.

An opportunity has opened up for my last 'bucket-list' guitar: a Martin D-18. It is costing me 2 guitars and €500, but if it is as good as my other Martins, I'll be a happy man.

I'm hoping Boris will achieve his apparent goal of making the Pound small again, I'd like to buy a Chapman guitar before the Channel Wall is erected.

I've been internet window shopping, and thought about opening a thread for guitar related bargains and deals, and items for the budget conscience.
Came across some guitars with decent spec/materials, similar to Thomann's offerings.
Videos and reviews also looked at. Along with other similar products.
Single Cut style
T style
ST style
J style
Lesser electrics.
Double cut (PRS) style, set neck £99. Pickups too close together!

And a not so common guitar.

^^^I had one of those HB 12 strings. It wasn't bad, after a great setup. My mistake wasn't trying flatwounds on it. Sold it to help pay for my Gretsch.

Gotta get some P90's in cheapo guitar project someday.
