LIMITED TIME! Take $100 off this model, and 50% off options! The Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop is excited to announce the all-new Type-X Series headless guitars. Available in 6, 7 and 8 string models, as well as multiscale variants, the Type-X combines two of our most popular instruments ever; the Vader Series headless guitar, and the V220/X220 80s-era guitars. The V220 has been a huge fan-favorite for more than 30 years, and the Vader Series ushered in Kiesel Guitars' entry into the headless guitar market, therefore, it was a natural decision to combine these two popular models into one exciting instrument. Like all Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop instruments, the Type-X Series is made in the USA, and loaded with features, along with having Kiesel Guitars full complement of Custom Shop options available. It's a boutique instrument, without the boutique price, and you can build your Type-X exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of an instrument that will last you a lifetime, and that will really stand out on stage.

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 Type-X XM8. 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)

Type-X Series guitars are not available in left-handed configurations.

The XM8 is built at the Kiesel Guitars Custom Shop in Escondido, California.
