The 2023 Kiesel release line-up delivers on many of the most requested options and features over the past few years. These include a guitar rendition of the headless Thanos bass, a Floyd Rose or Evertune bridge option on the Delos, the Lyra with an optional bevel delete, and many more builder options such as Roasted Alder or Swamp Ash body woods and KTB (Kiesel Treated Board) fingerboards.
Other specialized finish options introduced to the virtual builder include Reverse Cali Burst, Summer Ash, and Fades; brand-new solid colors consist of Solid Pink, Solid Purple, and Sky Blue. The 3-piece neck variation line-up increases with the addition of Walnut/Roasted Maple and Maple/Roasted Maple, further diversifying the already-eclectic wood combination list.

The Thanos guitar was crafted after years of demand for a guitar version of the original Thanos bass model. The spin-off stands out among the headless guitar line-up due to its bold, outwardly-turning horns while maintaining the comfort, playability, and stability of a Kiesel headless instrument. Constructed with a bolt-on neck joint, the Thanos guitar is available in 6, 7, and 8 strings in either standard or multiscale.

The Lyra guitar model is now available with the bevel delete option. Differring from the standard Lyra, the bevel delete version removes the top bevel while also rounding the body edges creating an entirely different aesthetic.
You asked and we listened! The Delos guitar model is now available with new bridge and pickup options. The Evertune bridge is now available in 6 and 7 strings while the Floyd Rose is now available in 6 string only. In addition, Fishman Fluence active pickups are now available the Delos and Delos Headless models.
