Michael Kelly Custom Collection '60s Burl Ultra Electric Guitar, Pau Ferro Fingerboard

A 10.5" to 16" compound radius fretboard makes it easy to fly up the neck. The korina body and figured maple top makes the Burl 60 Ultra sustain for days.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Compound Radius Fretboard 10.5" at the first fret to 16" up the neck
Figured maple top Beautiful wood grain; brighter tone
Korina body Very warm, lively, and balanced tonewood
Pau Ferro fretboard Delivers strong midrange presence and punch

The Birdseye Burl Maple top on the Burl 60 Ultra will catch your eye, but wait until you play it! Fun, versatile, smooth, and bold are some of the words that players have used to describe their take on the Ultra. The all-Korina body is lightweight but has a thick tone, akin to a fine piece of mahogany. The burl top/Korina body combination delivers articulate highs and lots of guts in the lows and mids. Michael Kelly modded the electronics to give you a little something extra. Michael Kelly equipped the Burl 60 Ultra with a Rockfield combination that remains our most-requested for traditionally configured 60s series models.

Available in three striking color options, each designed specifically to maximize the appearance of the Birdseye Burl Maple top. The gold hardware allows the exotic wood and custom color combination to really pop. This is a head-turning guitar that has the tone to back up its good looks.

I recieved my guitar from zZounds on Monday 10-03-2022. I also ordered the hard 1960s case with it. Opened box and unwrapped the guitar and wow my eyes lit up and I was amazed by this beautiful guitar. This is my 3rd Michael Kelly guitar. I’m hooked and a big fan now. zZounds always comes through for me. I’ve been doing business with them since 2019and never had any issues. Awesome company!!

I did have to set the guitar up had a low E string buzz. But a slight turn of the tension rod and adjust the saddle it was easy to get the buzz out. Nice low action.

The electronics on their guitar is amazing. It has several different sounds that can be achieved by using the coil split, it has neck and bridge single coils with a humbucker. What’s cool is you split the humbucker and tie in the neck pickup for an amazing sound that I’ve never heard on any other guitar. Thanks Michael Kelly for this awesome tool

Ease of Use
This is an amazing guitar. I’m very pleased for all the sounds it can give. Not much need for changing guitars when you have all these tools in one guitar.

Wow is all I can say about the looks of this guitar! It is perfectly built and might add that the price is perfect. I didn’t expect these guitars to be perfect but I own 3 Michael Kelly’s now never had any flaw with any of mine.
