Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop have debuted the new Aries A6 and Aries A7 bolt-neck electric guitars. These new guitars were designed from the ground up to be completely different from any other bolt-neck instrument the Custom Shop has ever produced, and they're loaded with new features and options.
