Sharkman Posted November 30, 2018 Share Posted November 30, 2018 My retail business has been really really good the past few months, so I started thinking about getting another Kiesel (formerly Carvin) custom built guitar. Tuesday night I was searching through their website trying to find a picture of this one guitar I saw before that I really liked the looks of. After an hour of unsuccessful searching, I gave up, and out of boredom I decided to look at their "Guitars In Stock" section. As I scrolled down, I came across the guitar in the picture. It was almost exactly like the guitar I was searching for, with a few very minor differences. All day Wednesday I debated about whether I really needed another guitar, versus buying something else that I might want or actually need. Wednesday night I did some math, looked over my merchandise inventory, looked at my sales book for the last few months, and I decided that I can afford it, and I want it. So today, Thursday just after noon Eastern time, I called up Kiesel and asked if the $1,739.00 price was negotiable. The salesman, Keith, said probably not, but what did I have in mind? I told him I would offer $1,700.00 for the guitar, a case, and shipping. He told Jeff Kiesel, co-owner of Kiesel Guitars, about my offer, and a minute later said okay, but they'll ship it with a soft case instead of the pricier hard case. I gave him my Visa information, and my Christmas present to me should arrive next week. I'll write more about it when it gets here. Quote I rock; therefore, I am.
