The Forte Port X starts with the Michael Kelly Port Technology. This fine-tuned combination of bracing and an offset soundhole placement works great with this all quilt maple body. Easily amplify your Port X thanks to the included active Fishman electronics system. Control the volume and adjust the tone with two onboard controls, located in the soundhole. Discrete, but very easy to use and all without any holes cut into the side of the instrument.

Second soundhole makes all the difference


I play a lot of styles across acoustic and classical guitar. This guitar has a deep rich low sound and decent mids and highs. It also has a second soundhole on the top side of the guitar, letting me hear every note more clearly than on other guitars. This helps with inflection and tonality, really letting me bring melodies alive. Out of the box the action is high, settled in once I lowered the bridge slightly. Intonation is relatively good up the neck. I'd put this up against other guitars that are twice as expensive.
