At Kiesel Guitars/Carvin Guitars, "Factory
Direct" means exactly what it has meant since 1946 Better
Features, Service, and Value. By eliminating distributors and retailers,
we are able to put the savings right back into higher quality guitars, basses and other products
with lower prices to you. Our guitars and basses are boutique
instruments, but they don't carry a boutique price tag.
Kiesel Guitars value
is evident in the high level of materials, workmanship, and quality control
maintained at our Escondido, California factory.
Kiesel Guitars Custom
Shop instruments feature hand selected, kiln-dried tone woods, hand buffed
finishes, custom wound pickups, and hand-wire electronics. CNC routers
and milling machines hold tolerances to less than .001" making our
Rapid Play necks super fast, with playing action down to 3/64".
The Custom Shop allows you design an instrument that's perfect for your playing style
and personal preferences. Hundreds of available options, including
body and neck woods, exotic top woods, finishes, fingerboard woods, inlays, fretwire, hardware, electronics
and more allow near-limitless possibilities. With new Kiesel Special Edition instruments, you can
take your design to the next level, with hand-selected woods, custom one-of-a-kind finishes, and
special options not available on standard instruments. In most cases, if you can
dream it up, Mark & Jeff Kiesel and the master craftsmen of Kiesel Guitars can build it. Whether
you're looking for your first custom-built instrument or your last, Kiesel Guitars can build you
a guitar or bass that will stand out on stage, play and sound better than anything else you've tried,
and last you a lifetime.
