Kiesel Guitars Introduces Amos Williams Signature Vader Bass
Kiesel Guitars teamed up with TesseracT bassist Amos Williams to create the Vader AW5 Signature headless bass. The new model is based on the Vader bass with several differences including a 34-inch scale 23-fret fingerboard, and a single high output HB series humbucker.
As with all Kiesel and Carvin instruments, the AW5 is available with a number of options. Standard features include an alder body, a maple neck with carbon-fiber reinforcement, and an ebony fingerboard. The AW5 comes with an active 2-band preamp with a push-pull tone knob to toggle into passive mode. The bass’s average weight is 8.5 pounds.
The Kiesel Guitars Vader AW5 Signature Headless Bass is available for order now with a direct price of $1,449.
