LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! To help kick off 2020, Kiesel Guitars is proud to announce the all-new Thanos Series bolt-neck headless basses. Available in 4 and 5 string models, as well as a 5-string multiscale variant, the Thanos Series combines a jazz bass aesthetic with our popular headless design, and combines them into one exciting new instrument. The Thanos Series is made in the USA, and loaded with features, along with having Kiesel Guitars full complement of Custom Shop options available. It's boutique instrument, without the boutique price, because Kiesel Guitars eliminates the middleman markup by selling directly to you. You can build your Thanos TB5 5-string multiscale bass exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of an 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 Thanos headless TBM5 multiscale 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 TBM5 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
