LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! On the heels of our hugely popular Vader Series headless guitars and Aries Series multiscale guitars, Kiesel Guitars is excited to announce the all-new Vader Series multiscale fanned-fret headless guitars. Available in 6, 7 and 8 string models, the multiscale Vader continues the evolution of the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop. Vader Series guitars and basses 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 VM8. 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)

For left-handed orders, contact Kiesel Sales at (858) 484-8277, or email Left-handed multiscale models are non-returnable, and must be paid in full at time of order.

The VM8 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
