Michael Kelly Lead Guitar MKFESZESFX
When you first lay eyes on the Forte Exotic JE you can not help but notice the striking appearance. That is thanks to the Java Ebony top. The styling is enhanced thanks to a bold satin black finish on the Okoume back and sides and 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. We further improve that performance via our Port Technology which positions the soundhole off center and opens up a larger soundboard.
Want to plug it in? No problem. The Forte Exotic JE includes a complete Fishman system. It is active and includes both a volume and tone control. We have located these inside of the soundhole on the top where you can easily access them and adjust on the fly, but all without us putting a big plastic box attached to the side.

Michael Kelly Pinnacle 5 5-String Bass Guitar Custom Burl MKP5CPBERU
The Pinnacle 5 is able to create that perfect tone, whether in a concert performance, recording in the studio, or simply knocking out tunes in rehearsal. Two custom-wound Rockfield MDC5 humbucker pickups provide a modern, fat sound with a potent midrange punch. This increased output of the dual coils produces a full, meaty voice that can sing with amazing sustain. Each pickup is equipped with a dedicated coil-split switch. Splitting the pickup coils to a single-coil configuration will deliver a more airy, classic tone.
The push-pull Master Volume knob engages the active preamp. In the active mode, the MK Custom 3-band EQ offers simple control shaping of the instrument’s sound. Selecting the passive mode calls up an authentic “old-school” tone. It is this inclusive combination of pickups, coil-splitting, pickup blending, and the active MK 3-band EQ that assure an endless range of signature sounds for each player.
The die-cast MCN5 bridge allows individual side-to-side saddle adjustments for variable string spacing by up to 1.5mm to optimize the instrument to your playing preferences. An exposed spoked truss rod wheel at the base of the fingerboard makes any needed adjustments quick and easy.SKU: n/a

MICHEAL KELLY LEAD GUITAR MK60CBUPRH
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. We modded the electronics to give you a little something extra. We 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.
