Kiesel Guitars is proud to introduce the latest model in our Allan Holdsworth Signature Series guitars, the HH7 7-string headless guitar. This guitar was already well into the development stages at the time of Allan’s untimely passing, and we decided to move forward with it as a tribute and lasting legacy to our dear friend and long-time endorser. Allan was quite excited about the development of this new signature model, and we think he would have approved of the end result.
The HH7 is based on the popular HH2, which was our first-ever headless guitar, designed in conjunction with Allan to meet his exacting requirements for tone and playability combined with a compact profile and light weight. The HH7 has an alder body and set-in maple neck, with optional body chambering available to further reduce weight. It’s loaded with a pair of Kiesel Allan Holdsworth 7-string humbuckers, with master volume and tone controls. The standard bridge is our new Hipshot headless bridge, which, in conjunction with the Kiesel-designed headpiece, accepts standard, single-ball end strings. Our new Kiesel-designed Hipshot tremolo is also available, and it also accepts standard strings.
Like all Kiesel Guitars USA Custom Shop models, you can choose from a complete selection of options for your new HH7, including body, neck and fingerboard woods, exotic top woods, solid, translucent, metallic and coloring-shifting finishes, inlays in different shapes and colors, assorted fretwire sizes and materials and much more. You can design your HH7 exactly the way you want it to suit your personal tastes as well as your gig.
