Mr. Kiesel was born on a farm in Nebraska on February 22, 1915, and as a young
man in Kansas he developed an interest in musical instruments; specifically,
Hawaiian steel guitars, resonators, and the newly-emerging electronic aspects
of these instruments. While playing on local radio shows he found that he
had an equal passion for building instruments and equipment as he did playing
them, and that passion would become his lifes work.

He founded the L. C. Kiesel Company in 1946 specializing in winding guitar


pickups on an old sewing machine, and by 1949 he had added amplifiers and steel
guitars to his lineup of gear. There are still examples of these early Kiesel badged
steel guitars and amplifiers in existence today, underscoring the quality and
durability of Mr. Kiesels early designs.

Kiesel pickups were originally offered through a distributor,


however Mr. Kiesel knew he could do a better job by eliminating the middleman and selling directly to the customer. this revolutionary idea became
the foundation of a business that would last generations.

After almost 70 years designing and manufacturing high quality, USAmade instruments, Carvin Corporations guitar and bass Custom Shop division is being separated into its own company, to be known as Kiesel Custom
Guitars. This will allow the Custom Shops talented designers, builders
and other staff to focus exclusively on creating the world-class instruments the company is known for. The original Kiesel brand name was
launched in 1946 by family patriarch Lowell Kiesel as the L.C. Kiesel Company, and was renamed Carvin in 1949 when the company launched its innovative direct-sales business model, so returning to the Kiesel name is
an homage to the company founder, who passed away in 2009. Mark Kiesel,
son of Lowell, has been in charge of guitar production since 1970, and
pioneered countless innovations in the stringed instrument industry
over the years. Throughout the 70s and 80s, Mark personally designed
and built every instrument that passed through the Custom Shop, and as
the popularity of the brand exploded in the 1980s, a whole team of talented luthiers, painters, engineers, technicians and other staff joined
the company. Marks son, Jeff Kiesel, has been with the company for over 20
years, and under Marks tutelage, has acquired a wealth of
knowledge in the design and construction of stringed instruments. His
innovative and exciting new instrument designs, new features, and options as well as streamlined manufacturing processes have reinvigorated the Custom Shop, and created excitement among the Custom Shops
countless players and fans. The Carvin brand name for instruments is
exclusively owned by Kiesel Guitars and will continue to be made along
side Kiesel branded instruments. Kiesel Guitars is retaining the current
staff and Production will continue at current location.
Mark Kiesel, President says: I have loved this business from the time I
started working part time for my dad in the 60s. Later in 1970 after working full time as a design draftsman for a large aero-space company, I was
asked by my brother, Carson to quit my job and work full time at Carvin
to run the guitar department. Its been a fun process to grow our guitar
sales from miniscule to what they are today. If my Dad was still with us
he would be proud to see his original KIESEL logo in use again. The coolest thing for me is to see how passionate my son Jeff is about designing
and building guitars. And now my grandson Zak is working part time.
How cool is that! When you are as passionate as we are about designing
and building instruments, having our own company to focus entirely on
guitars and basses is a dream come true!
Jeff Kiesel, V.P. says: This is an amazing time for us and I am really excited
about our future. With this change it will remove distractions for the
both of us and allow us to focus on what we love and are best at. The
Instruments we are building today are far superior to anything we built
in years past, its fun to work on projects together and bounce ideas off
each other and constantly push the envelope of development and quality.
My kids both play guitar and currently my son Zak works here part time,
since Zak was about three years old he has wanted to design and build
guitars alongside myself and my dad. We all really enjoy what we do and
this will allow us to be even better at it.

WOODS AND FINISHES


Optional body woods

Alder (North

Genuine Mahogany

This medium lightweight wood is the


standard body wood
for most Carvin solid
body guitars and basses. Alder is a classic
tone wood used in
solid body electric guitars since the 50s.

Genuine Mahogany is
a classic tone wood.
Denser and heavier
than Alder and can add
over 1 pound to your
instrument. Mahogany
along with our flamed
or quilted maple tops,
give great sustain and
warmth.

Swamp Ash, which


comes from Southern
swamps is about the
same weight or slightly lighter than Alder.
It is light in color with
rich grain patterns and
delivers slightly less
midrange with full lowend and nice singing
highs.

Flamed Curly Koa

Figured Claro
Walnut (California)

Hard Rock Maple

West USA)

(N. East USA)

We u s e p r e m i u m
Eastern hard rock
maple for our necks
because of its time
proven strength and
stability. As a body
wood, hard rock maple
being very heavy and
dense delivers a bright
sustaining tone.

(see price l i s t )

O p t i o n a l B o dy To p w o o d s (see price list)

AAAA Flamed Curly Maple

AAAA Quilted Maple

(North West USA)

(Hawaiian Islands)

(North West USA)

Flamed Maple produces singing highs


with a tight low end.
Sounds wonderful over
our standard Maple
neck/Alder body or
Mahogany.

Besides its exotic


Hawaiian Island appeal
& rarity, a guitar built
with a Flamed Curly
Koa top will give
added sweetness and
pronounced midrange.

Quilted Maple produces similar tones to


Flamed Curly Maple.
The quilted figure can
vary from large to
smaller pockets.

Zebrawood

Burl Birds Eye Maple

Zebrawood has a very


unique and high end
look with heavy dark
streaking and pattern,
and its tonal qualities
are similar to rosewood.

Burled Birdseye Maple


comes from big leaf
maple trees (Acer macrophyllum). Tonally,
its similar to flamed
maple. Because of its
scarcity, it is available in
limited quantities.

White Limba
(Africa)

White Limba, also


known as Korina, is an
exotic blonde wood. It is
the sap wood of the tree
& has similar tonal characteristics to mahogany
with resonant warmth &
excellent sustain.

Swamp Ash

Koa

Black Walnut
(Eastern USA)

(Hawaiian Islands)

Black walnut has


medium dark beautiful grain patterns,
is heavier than
Mahogany and can
add up to 2 pounds
to your instrument. It
has a warm, growling
low end and a bright
top end.

Koa is similar in
weight or slightly
heavier than Alder.
It has warmth and
sustain similar to
Mahogany and possesses the clear
open tone of Alder.
Koa looks wonderful
whether you choose
a tung oiled, satin or
gloss finish.

(Southern USA)

Spalted Maple

Claro walnut provides


brighter tone in the
upper register with a
darker growling low
end. The figure can
have variations of
brown and black.

Black Limba

(Western Canada)

(Western Africa)

Carvin uses the finest


premium 4A Spalted
maple available. This
exotic wood comes
from dying-standing
trees, which gives this
wood its unique oldworld look.

Black Limba also known


as Korina, This denser
wood will add up to 1 Lb
of weight to your instrument and give a clear
focused sound.
White Limba also available.

This remarkable-sounding instrument is deep and clear, with nice stringiness and
spank. Notes sound round and harmonically detailed in humbucker mode, and the
single-coil selections are bright and punchy. The DC127T is one chunky and intense
beast in super-high-gain conditions, and even the most heavily saturated chords retain
definition. A very versatile guitar that can easily cover rock, blues or country duties.

In response to his legions of fans around the


world, Carvin Guitars created the Jason Becker
Tribute JB200C electric guitar. The Custom Shop
worked with Jason to design this instrument as
closely as possible to his original late 80s blue
flame maple DC200. The JB200C is loaded with
many upgraded standard features & combined
with our state-of-the art modern manufacturing processes. For those that want a standard
wood top, the JB200SC is available.

that Carvin has put into it.

REVIEW

Steve Oliver

video: youtube.com/carvinguitars

Tested through a range of tube amps it


exhibits plenty of power to crunch and wail
when you want it to, but still retains outstanding clarity from all three humbucker
settings, with decent neck/bridge output
balance. The split-coil tones are extremely
impressive, too: where so many sound like
just half a humbucker (i.e. rather thin and
wan) the Carvins perform like gnarly P-90s at
full volume and snappier Fender-style singlecoils with the Volume knob rolled back a
touch. All in all, the SH550 is a sweet player, and a surprisingly versatile instrument.
Its ideal for those who want a guitar thats
more open and resonant sounding than a
humbucker-equipped solidbody, and it could
be the perfect choice for jazzers who seek
a compact-bodied, high-end archtop that
doesnt cost an arm and a leg.
DAVE HUNTER Aug 2010

SH550B

These instruments are true Carved Top Semi Hollow


Custom Shop masterpieces. Featuring a chambered
mahogany body with a beautifully sculpted solid flamed
maple top that is carved both inside and out. Tone this
sweet just isnt possible from a semi-hollow guitar made
with thin pieces of bent plywood or veneer. The back of
the body and the neck are made of hand selected genuine mahogany for added warmth. The harmonically rich
Classic Series covered humbuckers ooze with deep and
defined tone and sustain. Our Rapid Play low action
neck assures effortless playability throughout the entire
fingerboard while the sleek set-in neck heel and lower
body cut-out allows easy uninhibited access at the 22nd
fret. Whether you are a semi-hollow aficionado or a rock
enthusiast, an SH series guitar would be a fine addition to
your collection.

FG1 CARVED TOP


We worked very closely with Frank Gambale in the
development of the FG1. This guitar is a true carved top
semi-hollow double-cutaway instrument. The genuine
Honduran mahogany body is chambered and features a
premium carved curly-flamed maple top. The FG1 neck
profile and heel are custom sculpted to Franks specifications which makes for very comfortable playability and
total access to all 22 frets. Frank chose the C22B pickup
for the bridge and worked closely with us to develop the
FG22N neck pickup. This exquisite instrument is extremely
versatile and will handle all music styles from jazz to rock.

My new Carvin HH1X


has a fantastic neck,
fingerboard, radius, and
fretwire. Along with the
compact size, rigidity,
and comfort that I love
in a headless guitar
(while still being a full
25.5 scale length) The
playability and tone are
amazing. I started to use
the guitar on the road
the week It was built. I
am very happy indeed,

The SH60 & SH65 provide guitarists yet another flavor of single cut
design. Although similar in looks to
the TL60, the body is chambered for
true semi-hollow resonance. Both
models feature dual humbuckers and a tune-o-matic bridge. The
SH65 adds the Graph Tech system
for true acoustic tone and amazing
synth tracking. This is the same system as featured on the acclaimed
SH575.

NS1 NYLON SYNTH ACCESS

The NS1 nylon guitar features Carvin Guitars extraordinary workmanship and playability. We
worked very closely with Graph Tech when developing the pickup system for the NS1. The real
magic comes when you plug the NS1 into a guitar synth using a 13 pin cable. This provides both
synth and acoustic sounds, as well as phantom power, using the one 13-pin cable. The NS1 offers
the newest cutting edge technology to bring an awesome sounding acoustic piezo system together
with the fastest MIDI access tracking available.

Wood Stabilization
Wood destined for necks arrives at Carvin Guitars
Custom Shop in various states of moisture content. In
order to alleviate stress and eliminate any warping during
the neck construction process. Our slow kiln dries all
wood before any cuts are made. From there all lumber
is cut into neck blanks and stacked with spacers to allow
airflow between each blank. The blanks will remain in
the dehumidification chamber for several weeks. This
works to equalize the moisture content and relax the
wood, eliminating any stress. Once stabilized, each
neck is precisely machined and 2 carbon-fiber reinforcement rods are installed along with the dual-action adjustable truss rod to ensure stability for the entire life of the
bass.

Bass Features
Kiesel Guitars / Carvin Guitars employs over 60 years of expiercence designing basses and refining the construction, tone, electronics, and playability.
Weight, balance, comfort, and versatility are at the heart of the each instruments design. Wether you are a 4, 5, or 6 string bassist, our custom shop has
researched the needs of professional session and touring musicians to refine
every nuance. Two key examples are the tilt-back headstock and our refined
neck heel and 5-bolt neck plate. The tilt-back headstock eliminates a string
tree and allows for a straighter string pull behind the nut. This assists in tuning stability and overall tone and sustain on open notes. The 5-bolt neck plate
provides superior joining of the neck to the body while maintaining an ergonomic and non-invasive heel that allows players to access all frets. Ordering
a custom bass from Carvin Guitars gives you the pride of ownership and the
craftsmanship from our USA custom shop.
