Kiesel Guitars has a long relationship with acclaimed guitarist Craig Chaquico, from his V220-playing days in the 1980's with Jefferson Starship to his current incarnation as a respected jazz musician. In 2001, the Custom Shop teamed up with Craig to create the Craig Chaquico Signature Series CC275-12, a 12-string version of the CC275. Both CC signature models are based on the AC275, with several upgrades offered as standard features, as well as Craig's unique signature touches. The CC275 and CC275-12 are the guitars Craig actually plays in concert and in the studio - his guitars have no special modifications. So, you can order a CC275-12 model just like the ones Craig plays, and because we sell direct to you, you can have a boutique instrument without paying a boutique price. With hundreds of available options, you can build your CC275-12 acoustic/electric exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of a totally unique instrument that will last you a lifetime.
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 Craig Chaquico CC275-12. 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 CC275-12 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
