The SOPHIE LLOYD
signature model takes the form of the bolt-on Aries
while adding Lloyd's preferred specs. Three options exclusive to the SL are the Iron Age killswitch, the Sustainiac system, and Sophie's signature truss rod cover. To accommodate the killswitch, the rear Aries bevel is reduced into a sleek, minimalistic contour, while a different control layout is utilized for the Sustainiac system. Various specs, such as fingerboard and top wood, finish, and headstock shape, are customizable to the customer's taste.
[Kiesel is] one of the most innovative and exciting brands out there, and their A6 model has become such an extension of me and my playing that I could never imagine playing anything else. They are really unlike any guitar I've ever played, and I think you guys are going to love them!
