*SOLD Kiesel (Carvin) VB5 Headless Short Scale 5-string SOLD*

Recommended Posts

This is strung B-E-A-D-G – i.e. classic 5 string arrangement.

Hand built in USA 2017

Deep Black Cherry Flame Top on Lightweight Chambered body

5 piece maple through neck, short scale

Currently strung B to G with Flatwounds

I had this made by Kiesel a couple of years ago and is currently in new mint condition. It has never left the house, never been gigged, rehearsed, etc. I love this thing but it really needs to go to someone who will appreciate it and use it more.
