Mark Kiesel

Mark Kiesel is the President of Kiesel Guitars in Escondido, California and the son of Lowell Kiesel, the founder of Carvin Guitars. When his father began making guitars in the 1930s, it was with the Kiesel name. However, he stopped using the family name when he established Carvin Guitars in the 1950s. In 2015, Mark and his son, Jeff, began using the family name again - a fact for which Mark’s dad would be very proud. Growing up in the business, Mark designed most of the guitars produced by Carvin from the early 1970s until 2015 when his son took over as lead designer.
