Kiesel Guitars Adds to Multiscale Vader Bass Series
Kiesel Guitars has expanded its Vader bass lineup with five and six-string models of their multi-scale version of the bass. The new headless basses, dubbed the VBM5 and VBM6, come with lots of options.
“Like Vader standard-scale bass models, the VBM models feature a neck-through design, with an alder body and Eastern hardrock maple neck. Many optional wood choices are available, including swamp ash, walnut, mahogany and flamed or quilted maple, along with numerous other exotic choices.”
Standard features for the VBM5 and VBM6 include an ebony fingerboard with offset pearl white inlays, a Kiesel/Hipshot bridge, and Kiesel Radium pickups matched with active electronics. The Kiesel Multiscale Vader five- and six-string basses are available now with prices of $1,649 and $1,699.
