Steve Oliver is a proud endorser of Kiesel Guitars (formerly Carvin) and plays them exclusively.
The two models below were created with Steve’s input and participation.
NYLON STRING CLASSICAL SYNTH ACCESS ACOUSTIc / electric
The NS1 Nylon Synth Access Guitar offers the flavor of a nylon string acoustic with the addition of MIDI synth access. The NS1 features Kiesel Guitars expert Custom Shop guitar design. Action, playability and comfort is guaranteed to please any guitarist. The onboard piezo pickup can be used with or without a MIDI/Synth interface. By simply plugging a standard guitar cable into the NS1, you are able to play the guitar through any acoustic amp or PA. The active EQ circuits allow for full bottom end which will fool the audience and guitarist into thinking this is a full size acoustic body. The EQ features a Mid Sweep that brings incredible EQ power to dial in the perfect acoustic tone on any amplification system.
