Kiesel has announced the Sophie Lloyd Signature Series, a line of signature guitars for social media virtuoso and Machine Gun Kelly guitarist Sophie Lloyd that come with a customizable twist.

Lloyd’s model is based around Kiesel’s double-cutaway Aries silhouette, but makes a number of key tweaks to the formula – not least offering guitar players the option of spec’ing key components of the model themselves, something of a rarity among signature designs.
