Van het topmerk Michael Kelly uit Florida: De 1954OP in Faded Black! Het zwarte schaap van de 1950's collectie!
Gaat tegen de traditie in met een brutale look en klank! En de Open Pore finish zorgt voor een natuurlijke feel!
The focus has always been to start with sound and top it off with a bold, boutique-inspired appearance. When Michael Kelly launched, we, in fact, only offered mandolins and acoustic basses. These two markets had been under served and consumers could not buy a great sounding instrument without breaking the bank. The Michael Kelly Dragonfly collection of both acoustic basses and mandolins quickly became popular and hard to get. Musicians were drawn to their decidedly custom appearance and then fell in love with their sound and performance.
By 2001, Michael Kelly Guitars added its first acoustic guitars and electric guitars. These collections have evolved and are now sold around the world. To this day, Michael Kelly remains focused on our vision statement to be "Built On Sound" and each time we put the cherry on top by giving the musician a bold look. We are proud that we do not offer the cookie cutter boring guitars that are readily available from so many brands. We know there are players that prefer classic simplicity and we very much respect that. However, Michael Kelly will continue to be the brand of choice for those that prefer something more boutique and unique.
The 54OP might be called the black sheep of the 1950's collection. It avoids tradition in favor of a bolder look and tone. You can't help but notice the Open Pore finish on this Sungkai bodied guitar that delivers a more natural feel. This finish will preserve the natural acoustic properties of the tonewood while still providing excellent protection. The powerful Rockfield® SWC humbucker can be coil-split via the push/pull tone knob to deliver single-coil tone. The fast and comfortable neck is enhanced with a 10" radius on the premium Ebony fretboard. So eschew tradition with your own 54OP.
