Extremely affordable, amazing quality, and versatile in every way, the Michael Kelly 53DB electric guitar is a total steal.

The Michael Kelly 53DB electric guitar is built with some of the finest quality the industry has to offer. Big tone and versatility stand out the most when it comes to the 53DB, thanks to the custom electronics modification you can take full advantage of what this guitar brings to the table. The Michael Kelly 53DB is perfect for just about any genre in the business, ranging from blues to even metal.

Finest Quality
The 53DB body is made of alder with a flame maple top, and a natural body wood stripe binding. The neck is also made of maple, topped with a rosewood fingerboard (or maple for cherry sunburst color) which all feel great on the guitar, and sound amazing.  The modern C neck profile provides much smoother playability without sacrificing the feel of a vintage-style guitar.

Big Tone and Versatility
As previously mentioned before, a huge part of why this guitar sounds so big and versatile is due to the wood used on the build. The real bread and butter of it all is the pickups. The Rockfield SWC pickups are ground-up designed pickups that are made with nothing but love and care. They provide glass-like cleans, as well as extremely warm distortion tones with a powerful sustain.

Custom Electronics Modification
This boutique-style mod known as the Great 8 electronics mod is an incredible device that allows you to manipulate your tone to its fullest potential. The Great 8 allows you to double the power of your humbuckers, as well as split the pickups and provide a single-coil sound. The push-pull switches on the volume and tone knobs allow easy-access to maximize your experience when using this feature.

These guitars are great for the money. Alder bodies and maple caps, the cool great 8 coil tap and Rockfield pickups, make this an affordable stage player. The whole line is really quality. -this is a staff review by skern at Sam Ash Music 57
