Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop announce the all-new Vader Series headless guitars. Available in 6, 7 and 8 string models, the 27″ scale Vader is one of the most revolutionary instruments Kiesel Carvin have produced, and generated huge amounts of positive buzz at NAMM 2015…

These are the first new models to carry the Kiesel badge, as part of the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop breaking off into its own company. The Vader Series are constructed from wood, not composites, so their tone isn’t a radical departure from our traditional models. The Vader Series is made in the USA, and loaded with features, along with having Kiesel Guitars full compliment of Custom Shop options available. It’s a boutique instrument, without the boutique price, because Kiesel Guitars eliminates the middleman markup by selling directly to you. You can build your Vader exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of an instrument that will last you a lifetime.
