LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off 

options! The Kiesel Crescent Series guitars are the newest carved-top models to come out of the Custom Shop in a number of years, and represent an exciting new direction for our carved-top lineup. In addition to standard 6 and 7 string models, multiscale and 8-string versions are available; our first of both of these styles in a carved-top configuration. The C8 8-string model is sleek and stylish, with a more aggressive body shape than California Carved Top models, featuring a longer, more pointed upper horn, and a more pointed lower horn with a deep cutaway allowing access high on the fingerboard. Like all Crescent Series models, it has 24 frets, and uses set-thru neck construction with a minimal neck heel. Hundreds of available options allow you to build your C8 exactly the way you want it, and have an instrument that you'll be proud to play and own for years to come. The C8 is constructed to the highest possible standards of quality and playability by the Kiesel Guitars USA 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 Crescent C8 carved top guitar. 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. (US and Canada customers only; international customers, see here)

The C8 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
