Kiesel Guitars’ Aries Series bolt-neck basses are modeled on the popular Aries Series guitars, with similar styling and the Custom Shop’s reputation for superior build quality, unbeatable tone, excellent playability, and a long list of available options. Aries basses are sleek and modern, have a beveled top body similar to the Aries guitars which is very comfortable and provides great access and playability, and are available in 4, 5, and 6 string configurations. The Aries Bass is made in the USA and is loaded with features generally only found in boutique instruments. However, because we sell direct to the customer, there is no boutique price to pay for your new Aries Series electric bass. With hundreds of options available, you can build your AB4 exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of an instrument that will last you a lifetime.
