Michael Kelly Triple '50s Electric Guitar, Ebony Fingerboard

The Triple 50 spices up typical T-style construction with the addition of a middle single-coil pickup, a gorgeous burled maple top, and ebony fingerboard.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Burled maple top Burled wood grain with bright, projecting tone
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Macassar ebony fretboard High-density wood; smooth playing feel
S/S/S pickup configuration Three single-coils; huge variety of classic tones

With the Triple 50, Michael Kelly has broken away from the traditional setup of two single coil pickups and added a third single coil pickup in between the normal bridge and neck pickups. They have also updated the Triple 50 with a wiring mod that utilizes the standard 3 way selector switch with an additional mini toggle switch that allows you to bring the middle single coil pickup in or out of your mix so that you get even more tonal options.

The Triple 50 is one of the most versatile and tonally rich models within Michael Kelly's 1950's line, and will quickly become your favorite go-to guitar.

So this was my first MK guitar. Gotta be honest, I almost sent it back. It wasn't the quality or looks, it was I just didn't love it. I have another t style guitar, which is my fave body style, and 8 was just like it's really not better than my current guitar. After a night of contemplating, decided I didn't wanna mess with shipping it back. Long story short it's now the guitar I prefer to play. The neck is amazing and the tones you can get with the third pickup are great. Every guitar I've gotten as of late has made me better and expanded how I play. This one is just excellent and I'm already eyeing another MK Tele. Love it.
