The V6 is unique among headless 6-string guitars. It has a body made from alder, which is a high-quality tone wood used by many manufacturers because of it’s relative light weight and and fine resonating tone. Alder has a subtle and attractive grain that looks great in any of Kiesel Guitars’ many finishes, including solid colors, translucent finishes and our metallic solid finishes. Optional chambering the body reduces the already light weight of the instrument, making the V6 comfortable to play for hours on end. Optional body woods such as mahogany, walnut and koa are available, all of which have their own tonal characteristics. You can add exotic top woods, such as AAAA flamed maple, AAAA quilted maple, flamed koa, and California Claro walnut. All of the Custom Shop’s neck and fingerboard woods undergo a long conditioning process in our de-humidification chambers to remove any stress in the wood and prevent future warping or twisting, and our woods are carefully hand-selected and inspected to ensure your new V6 will be free of natural defects.
The neck of the V6 is made from Eastern hardrock maple, and has a gloss finish standard. The neck-through design creates a smooth neck heel, allowing easy access high on the fingerboard. If you like, you can choose from many of the Custom Shop’s optional woods for the neck, such as koa or mahogany, as well as an optional satin or tung-oil finish on the back.
The V6 features a standard 25.5″ scale ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl diamond inlays, and a 20″ radius with 24 medium-jumbo stainless steel frets. A 27″ scale is optional. You can choose from a wide assortment of fingerboard options, including rosewood, maple, birdseye maple, flamed maple, royal ebony or zebrawood fingerboards and dot, block or diamond inlays in mother-of-pearl or genuine abalone, as well as dots, diamond and blocks in acrylic colors. Kiesel Guitars also offers a number of fretwire options, including low-wide and gold EVO. The “Rapid Play” low action neck assures effortless playability throughout the entire fingerboard, while the lower cutaway and minimal neck heel allows easy access all the way up to the 24th fret. The fully-adjustable dual action truss rod allows you to set the action exactly the way you want it. The Dual High Modulus Carbon Fiber Rods keep the neck stable allowing you to play your guitar, not constantly adjust it.
A Hipshot™ hardtail bridge with knob tuners is standard. The bridge is finished in matte black, for classic looks and ease of care. There is a strap button on the upper horn in the normal position, and two lower strap buttons, allowing the guitar to stand safely leaned against an amp.
The V6 comes equipped with our new direct-mount Kiesel K12 humbucking pickups. Standard pickup colors are black coils, with cream or white coils available. Passive electronics consist of a master volume control, master tone control and 5-way lever-style pickup selector.
