Michael Kelly 50s Forte Hybrid Electric Guitar
Started in 1999, Michael Kelly Guitars has always taken a unique path.
The focus has always been to start with sound and top it off with a bold, boutique-inspired appearance. Musicians were drawn to Michael Kelly's decidedly custom appearance and then fell in love with their sound and performance. To this day, Michael Kelly remains focused on their vision statement to be "Built On Sound" and each time they put the cherry on top by giving the musician a bold look. Michael Kelly will continue to be the brand of choice for those that prefer something more boutique and unique.
Boutique styling and classic sound come together in the 50s Forte Hybrid. The guitar features a highly-figured spalted maple top which is accented by rich cream binding. The offset sound hole and side port create an open resonant tone, while still providing the rich sustain of a solid body instrument.
The roasted hard flame maple neck with 22 medium jumbo frets features a modern “C” shape that is comfortable and extremely easy-to-play, you won’t want to put it down. With stunning transparent finishes, a multitude of sonic variations and boutique-features, the 59 Forte Hybrid is an excellent addition to any player’s collection.
