LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! Following the wildly successful Vader Series headless guitars, and after many requests from our customers, the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop is excited to announce the new Vader Series headless basses. Vader basses are offered in 4, 5 and 6 string versions, and all three models also offer a 30" short-scale option; another feature that has been requested often. Like the Vader headless guitars, the VB4 Vader headless bass is constructed from premium woods, not composites, so their tone isn't a radical departure from our traditional models. The Vader Series headless basses are 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 sells directly to you. You can build your Vader VB4 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 Vader headless VB4 4-string 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 VB4 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
