Awesome guitar


It's a really great guitar and for the price that it is, it's a good idea for musicians to get this guitar



Very playable and great sounding guitar.


Very nice guitar, especially for the price. It played well out of the box. The only thing I had to do was file a few sharp fret edges (which happens to every guitar with temperature changes). No upcharge for a Lefty which was very appreciated. The electronics sound GREAT too. I bought this to save my expensive guitars from getting beat up. However, since it's nicer than I expected, I'll also be using this for gigs. I hate buying guitars sight unseen. I'm real glad I took a chance with this guitar. I'd buy another if something happened to it.



Try it, you'll like it.


I would have given 5 stars but it's made in China. A very different experience, hearing what you're playing. The websites show internal Fishman Electronics but the new models have the electronics on the side with a tuner. Michael Kelly says website not updated due to COVID19 (again China).

This guitar plays real smooth for the price range, the salesman was real knowledgeable



Gorgeous sound, stunning value!


I bought this guitar as new, open box, from Sam Ash Direct several weeks ago. I was playing mostly electric guitars, but this has got me playing acoustic guitar every day! The sound is deep, rich, and spread across the spectrum evenly. It has a straight neck, excellent tuners, and a side sound hole facing your head while you play, so your ability to hear your instrument is enhanced. the neck is narrow, with a beautiful C shape.. it fits my hand perfectly. The string through bridge creates greater resonance than a pin- bridge setup.. the sound just rings, and is very responsive to pick attack.. you can really find your voice on a Michael Kelley port guitar! I rate this guitar as good as Martin and Taylor entry level cutaway guitars, at half the price. Lefty players, rejoice! I had this sent to Sam Ash in Springfield, so Brian, the luthier, could look at it. He was shocked to find NOTHING that required adjustment. I did have him file the bridge down a tad on the high strings to lower the action, but that is strictly a personal preference. Even the frets were filed down! BUY ONE OF THESE.. you won't regret it!

Beautiful guitar - great quality especially for the price!


I really love this guitar. I use it pretty much daily in my work as a music therapist. I loved how it sounds when I plug it in, but use it primarily for acoustic purposes. The extra sound hole on the top is especially useful for me as a hearing impaired individual, because it helps me hear what I'm playing better. The strings hold its tune quite well and it has a beautiful tone.
