Kiesel Guitars is very excited to welcome noted instrumental progressive guitarist Chris Letchford to our family of endorsers and artists. Chris is well known in guitar circles, having attended both Berklee College of Music, as well as Musicians Institute in Hollywood. He's released numerous instructional books/DVDs, has been featured in many national and international guitar magazines, and tours full-time with his band Scale the Summit, who have opened for prog legends such as YES and Dream Theater. Chris recently recorded his first solo release, LIGHTBOX, and is currently writing and recording the follow-up album.
Chris’s primary instrument is the Kiesel Vader Series VM7 Multiscale Headless Guitar. The Custom Shop built a special VM7 to Chris's specifications, with a unique gold metallic finish, flamed maple fingerboard and custom gold hardware. Chris says: “I tried a Vader and fell in love with it, so I’m very proud to announce that I am now an exclusive Kiesel Guitars artist! Introducing the ‘Gold Digger’!”
To commemorate Chris joining the Kiesel family, the Custom Shop is offering a limited number of ‘Gold Digger’ Vader Multiscale Guitars in 6, 7 or 8-string variants for purchase. These will be identical to Chris's, loaded with Seymour Duncan pickups, gold metallic finish, gold hardware and flamed maple fingerboard with offset dot inlays. Call the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop at (858) GUITARS for more information or to reserve yours.
