Semi-hollow guitars are suitable for any playing style, and are especially popular in blues, jazz, and classic rock.

And with hundreds of available options, you can build your SH550 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 SH550 Semi-Hollow 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.
