Luminlay Side Dots now offered

Kiesel Guitars and the Carvin Guitars Custom Shop is excited to offer Luminlay Super Blue Side Dots on our USA-made guitars and basses! These glow-in-the-dark side dots are ideal for musicians performing in low-light conditions, especially on stage. The Super Blue series is the NEW brighter and more powerful illuminated Blue colored side dot. These are a must have for musicians that perform in low lighting conditions. The dots can be „charged” using florescent lighting, or with Luminlay’s LL-1 LED light charger (available from Luminlay). Just a few minutes of charging will make the dots glow for your entire gig!

Luminlay side dots are available on any non-maple fretboard, including fretless basses. Add your Luminlay side dots on your next Custom Shop build, and „see” the difference!

The Custom Shop can also work with you on special one-off finishes and other custom options – check out our Kiesel Guitars Facebook and Kiesel Guitars Instagram to see some amazing examples of the custom work we’ve done. From the understated to the completely over-the-top, the skilled artists of Carvin Guitars can build your ultimate guitar or bass.
