LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! The AE185 acoustic/electric guitar, first introduced in 1994, is one of our most popular models. Its unique semi-hollow acoustic/electric configuration allows you to jump from electric lead riffs to acoustic tone with ease, giving you essentially two instruments in one. The AE185 is loaded with features generally only found in boutique instruments, but because we sell direct to you, you don't have to pay a boutique price. And with hundreds of available options, you can build your AE185 exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of a totally unique instrument that will last you a lifetime. The AE185 is constructed to the highest possible standards of quality and playability by the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop.

The only way to appreciate the performance of a Kiesel Guitars instrument is to use it in your own environment, giving it the test of "real world" performance. Take 10 days to try out your AE185. If you're not completely satisfied, you can return it - no questions asked. Your trial period starts when the merchandise is received by you, not when it's shipped. Really give it a workout. If you're not satisfied for any reason, send it back for a prompt refund or exchange - you would only be responsible for the return shipping.

The AE185 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
