Michael Kelly '53 Open Pore Electric Guitar, Ebony Fingerboard

Michael Kelly adds a touch of the exotic to the traditional T-style guitar with the addition of the Quad Mod switching system and a gorgeous Sungkai body.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
10-inch fretboard radius Fast and modern fingerboard profile
25.5-inch scale Increases string tension for tighter bottom end
Ebony fretboard Dark color, tight grain; premium fretboard wood
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength

Just the right amount of vintage magic makes the 53OP the choice for those that are seeking a more traditional instrument. For this special edition, Michael Kelly started with an exotic Sungkai tonewood body and wrapped it in a Tobacco Sunburst Open Pore finish that delivers a more natural feel. This finish will preserve the natural acoustic properties of this tonewood while still providing excellent protection.

The pickup configuration on the 53OP guitars is vintage traditional. Well at least that is how it appears. Actually they put an MK electronics mod on the 53OP called the Quad Mod. As the name implies you get 4 great sonic options instead of the expected 3 options. The 53OP has a 4 way switch and in that fourth switch position we give you both pickups in series. It is like having a nice fat humbucker as those two pickups work together. The 53OP also has some nice and hot single-coil Rockfield's designed especially for this instrument. Traditional has never been more evolved.
