LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! Kiesel Guitars is excited to announce our first multiscale jazz-style bass, the JBM5 Classic Jazz Bolt-Neck Multiscale Five String Bass. The JBM5 takes the classic jazz look of the popular JB5, and combines that with a multiscale fingerboard. The JBM5 is more than just another take on a classic design; it's been designed to offer superior balance, excellent tone, and playability that can't be beat. Features such as Hipshot™ Solo saddles, smooth contoured neck heel with 5-bolt neck, 22-fret neck with dual carbon-fiber reinforcement rods and JVA single-coil jazz pickups make the JBM5 a true player's instrument, regardless of your playing style or genre. The JBM5 is made in the USA, and is loaded with features generally only found in boutique instruments. However, because we sell direct to you, you don't have to pay a boutique price for your new JBM5. With hundreds of options available, you can build your JBM5 exactly the way you want it, whether you prefer a classic, understated look or a fully-loaded eye-catcher. 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 JBM5 bass. 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 JBM5 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
