Michael Kelly Forte Port Acoustic-Electric Guitar

The Michael Kelly Forte Port acoustic-electric carves a unique path with its top bracing and soundhole that creates a dynamic, responsive, and bold sound.

The Forte Port features Michael Kelly's Port Technology. This fresh approach to top bracing and soundhole placement results in a noticeable improvement in sonic performance, resulting in a dynamic, responsive, and bold sound. The Forte Port features an aggressive cutaway giving you more fingerboard access and great balance.

The Forte Port is equipped with an active Fishman Presys electronics system. The under saddle bridge pickup captures the full and natural sound of the Forte.

I was really not expecting much from this guitar but am trying it anyway. So far it’s ok playing and sounds good. Excellent resonance and sounds good on the amp with the hollowed out setting and the full bodied setting. Will be commenting again , but so far for the money it’s a good sounding well put together instrument.
