Michael Kelly '53 DB Flame Maple Electric Guitar, Ebony Fingerboard

Featuring a flame maple top and a pair of sizzling humbuckers, the 53DB offers players a great value on an instrument that shines on stage and in studio.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Flamed maple top Premium wood grain with bright, projecting tone
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Pau Ferro fretboard Delivers strong midrange presence and punch

Big tone and versatility are the calling card of the 53DB. With a double humbucker configuration, you start with a full array of classic tones often missing from a guitar of this style. We then added our custom electronics modification called the Great 8 allowing you to switch those humbuckers into a single-coil tone. This is done using two provided push-pull pots. Have fun with these eight distinctive tonal options!

The body on the 53DB is made from alder and has a great looking flame maple top. The instrument is feature-packed and fun to play; full specs below.

I currently have 4 Michael Kelly telecaster-type guitars, and they are a tremendously under-rated brand. I think the 53DB is my favorite, but it is a close race between it and the 53OP. Each of the humbuckers is coil-splitable, so the tonal range is as wide as you could care to go. The finish is fantastic, and the neck is very playable. I could not find anything wrong with the guitar whatsoever, and I highly recommend it to everyone. It is a STEAL at this price!
