LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! The multiscale VM59K Vanquish 5-string is Kiesel Guitars first foray into multiscale basses. The VM59K takes the many new features of the Vanquish Series, and adds a multiscale fingerboard, which is something our Custom Shop customers have been asking for since the introduction of the Aries, Vader, DCM and K-Series 70th Anniversary Series multiscale guitars. The VM59K is made in the USA, and is loaded with features generally only found in boutique instruments, and with many Custom Shop options available, you can build your multiscale VM59K 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 Vanquish VM59K 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.
