Michael Kelly Forte Exotic Ziricote Acoustic-Electric Guitar

Featuring Michael Kelly's unique Port Technology with its offset soundhole, the Forte Exotic Ziricote's sonic performance is as striking as its look.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Fishman Presys I Under saddle piezo with tuner
Okoume back and sides Warm and articulate tone
Ovangkol fretboard Smooth feel; brighter top end with full midrange
Ziricote top Full sound, lovely grain pattern

When you first lay eyes on the Forte Exotic Ziricote you'll instantly notice the guitar's exotic Ziricote top. The styling is enhanced thanks to the Okoume back and sides, along with the addition of black binding and hardware. The sonic performance is just as striking as the Forte Exotic's look. These woods combine to give you a full-bodied rich and deep tone. Michael Kelly further improves that performance via Port Technology, which positions the soundhole off center and opens up a larger soundboard.

Want to plug it in? No problem. The Forte Exotic Ziricote includes a complete Fishman system. It is active and includes volume, contour and phase controls along with a built in tuner.
