Kiesel Guitars Announces the Aries A6 and Aries A7

The series features an aggressively beveled body, reminiscent of the popular SCB Series, providing modern looks with comfortable playing.

San Diego, CA (September 21, 2015) -- Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop are very excited to debut the all-new Aries A6 and Aries A7 bolt-neck electric guitars. These new guitars were designed from the ground up to be completely different from any other bolt-neck instrument the Custom Shop has produced, and are loaded with new features and options any guitarist can appreciate.

The Aries Series feature an aggressively beveled body, reminiscent of the popular SCB Series, providing modern looks with comfortable playing. Sculpted horns, inspired by the Vader Series headless guitars, further accentuate the styling of the guitars, while allowing easy access high on the 24-fret fingerboard. A redesigned sculpted neck heel contributes to the ease of playing high on the fingerboard, and the elimination of the neck plate in favor of ferrules adds to the sleek design of the instrument. Dual carbon-fiber rods, along with a 2-way fully adjustable truss rod make the neck remarkably stable, and the tung-oil neck finish makes for fast playing, regardless of your style.

Other features of the Aries Series include a standard alder body, a weight-reducing chambered body option, new pointed inline 6 & 7 string headstocks, a standard Hipshot bridge and optional tremolos, direct-mount Kiesel Lithium humbuckers and our new optional center position Kiesel Lithium single coil pickup. 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 Aries exactly the way you want it. Like all Kiesel and Carvin Guitars, the Aries Series is proudly made in the USA at our southern California facility.

$899 street for 6-string model
$949 street for 7-string model
