LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! Kiesel Guitars is excited to announce the Vader Series headless guitars. Available in 6, 7 and 8 string models, the 27" scale Vader is one of the most revolutionary instruments we've produced, and generated huge amounts of positive buzz at NAMM 2015. These are the first new models to carry the Kiesel badge, as part of the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop breaking off into its own company. The Vader Series are constructed from wood, not composites, so their tone isn't a radical departure from our traditional models. The Vader Series is made in the USA, and loaded with features, along with having Kiesel Guitars full compliment 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 Vader 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 Vader V8. 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 V8 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
