For years, Kiesel Guitars players and fans have been asking for a semi-hollow version of our popular California Carved Top guitars, and we’re happy to respond with the all-new SH6 and SH7 Semi-Hollow California Carved Top guitars. The SH6 takes all the features of our popular CT624 Carved Top guitar, in a semi-hollow version. The SH7 7-string is modeled on the CT7 carved top, and shares the same features with it.
Both models are physically the same length and width as their solid-body counterparts, but they have a thicker body, as on the SH550. There is a single “f” hole in the upper bout of the standard flamed maple top wood, which helps produce a sweet, open tone. A mahogany neck and body add further warmth, and the standard ebony fingerboard helps produce crisp, clean notes. Our “S” bridge, with tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, is standard, and both are available with our new Kiesel-designed Hipshot tremolo. Both models are loaded with a pair of Kiesel Lithium humbuckers, with master volume and master tone controls and 5-way pickup selector.
Like all Kiesel Guitars USA Custom Shop models, you can choose from a complete selection of options for your new semi-hollow carved top guitar, 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 SH6 or SH7 exactly the way you want it to suit your personal tastes as well as your gig.
