Kiesel Guitars Announces Vader Series Headless Basses

(PRESS RELEASE): The new Kiesel Vader Series headless basses feature an aggressive, compact beveled body, which provide modern looks with comfortable playing. Generous forearm and belly cuts further add to the satisfying ergonomics of the bass. A sculpted lower cutaway further accentuates the styling of the instrument, while allowing easy access high on the 24-fret, 34" scale fingerboard, and a 30" short-scale option is offered on all three models. Our chambered body option further reduces the already light weight of the instrument. The standard body wood is alder, with an Eastern hard rock maple neck-through design. Dual modulus carbon-fiber rods, along with a 2-way fully adjustable truss rod make the neck remarkably stable, and allows you to adjust the action exactly the way you want it, regardless of your playing style.

Other features of the Vader Series basses include a  standard Hipshot™ bridge with exclusive Kiesel locking nut/headpiece assembly, allowing the use of standard bass strings. Radiused-top RADHV humbuckers are standard, with passive electronics and a master volume, master tone and pickup blend controls. Radiused single coil pickups and active electronics are also available. Hundreds of Custom Shop options, including body and neck woods, top woods, fingerboard woods, fretwire, inlays and much more allow you to design your new Vader bass exactly the way you want it. Like all Kiesel and Carvin Guitars, the Vader Series is proudly made in the USA at our southern California facility.

The Vader Series headless bass is the instrument you've asked for, and been waiting for. Its sleek, compact design, highest-quality materials, amazing tone and long list of available options make this the bass which others will be measured by, headless or not. Demand for these is sure to be high, so design your new Vader bass today on carvinguitars.com, and beat the rush!

The Custom Shop can also work with you on special one-off options - check out our Kiesel Guitars Facebook and Kiesel Guitars Instagram to see some amazing examples of the custom work we've done.
