Widely-acclaimed country/blues/western/rock guitarist Johnny Hiland is the newest member of the Kiesel Guitars family of artists, and we’re excited to welcome him!
Based in Nashville, but originally from Maine, Johnny has shared the stage with some of the biggest artists performing today, including Joe Bonamassa, Sammy Hagar, Steve Vai, Ricky Skaggs, Toby Keith and Hank Williams III. He's also performed on numerous albums, with other artists as well as solo, and is widely considered one of the fastest guitarists playing today, especially in his distinctive "chicken-pickin'" style. Additionally, Johnny has released many instructional books and videos, some of which are available on his website.
Johnny plays a Kiesel Solo model S6H, in scarlet red on swamp ash with the Custom Shop's Raw Tone Finish. Watch the video below to see Johnny putting his Solo S6H through its paces and talking about its features, and check out this extended-length conversation video between Johnny and Jeff Kiesel.
