Kiesel Guitars Introduce the Thanos Bass

Kiesel Guitars Thanos Basses

Kiesel Guitars launched a new line of headless basses at the 2020 Winter NAMM Show with the Thanos Series. The instruments come in four and five-string versions with options for standard or multi-scale necks.

Although many options are available, the model comes with standard features of an alder body, quartersawn Eastern hardrock maple neck, and ebony fingerboard with white inlays. As the bass is their headless version of a Jazz, it comes with a pair of their JVA single-coil pickups. (Humbuckers are an available option.) Another common feature is an 18-volt active/passive preamp complete with sweepable mid.

Get a look at the Thanos TB4 with this demo by August Burns Red bassist Dustin Davidson:

The Kiesel Thanos basses are available for order now with prices ranging from $1,349 to $1,599.
