Custom Shop Adds Tremolo Option for Vader Headless Guitars; Updates to
Holdsworth Headless Model
Big news from the Kiesel Guitars USA Custom Shop! In response to
overwhelming requests from our customers, we've added a new tremolo option for
Vader 6, 7 and 8 string guitars. Jeff Kiesel worked extensively with Hipshot to
develop the Hipshot/Kiesel Tremolo System, and we're excited to offer this now,
in advance of the official NAMM debut next month.
This new tremolo system has been many months in development, and was designed
specifically with the Vader Series guitars in mind. It's a complete floating
tremolo system, and use standard, single-ball end strings - no pricey
double-ball end strings required.
The Hipshot/Kiesel Tremolo System is available on 25.5" scale 6 and 7 string
Vaders, as well as the 27" scale V8. Because of the compatibility with the 25.5"
scale, this will now be the standard scale on the V6 and V7, with the 27" scale
optional (but not available in conjunction with the new tremolo, except on the
We've also updated the Allan Holdsworth Signature Headless HH2 model to use the
same Hipshot bridge as on the Vaders, or the new Hipshot/Kiesel Tremolo System.
The original JCustom bridge/tremolo used on the HH2 has been retired. Allan came
to visit the new Escondido factory, and tried out a Vader with the new tremolo,
and decided he wanted that on his signature model. Allan said, "The latest version of the Headless, I believe is the most flexible and versatile guitars to date. The new vibrato set up has beautiful sustain and superior pitch return along with an improved tone." With this
change, the HH2 will use the same Kiesel headpiece as the Vader, with a Graphtech nut. Additionally, the Holdsworth HH2 now has a standard solid alder
body, with chambering optional.
We're really excited to be able to offer this new tremolo system to our players
who've been wanting a Vader, but also needed a tremolo, and for a limited
time, we're offering the new Hipshot/Kiesel Tremolo System at a special
introductory price. So, if you've been
thinking about a Vader or a Holdsworth Headless, now is the time to order, before the NAMM rush.
From everyone at the Kiesel Guitars USA Custom Shop, we hope you're having a
happy, safe and fun holiday weekend, and as always, thanks for your continuing
