The Michael Kelly 53DB is a great guitar. It's extremely diverse thanks to the coil splitting, but one of my favorite features is the bridge. Yes, It's an ash tray bridge, which is a definitive aspect of a Telecaster, but you don't see it often with humbuckers. For 400 dollars, it is amazingly playable, beautiful, great sounding, and well built. It's hard for me to come up with something bad to say... but be careful because the soft body has a few dents courtesy of a similarly priced Ibanez. The headstock is a great compromise for not having Fender's shape, and fitting both T and S style guitars. Now, it shows it's weakness in the pickups, but really, everywhere else, you wouldn't guess that it's a 400 dollar guitar, so a pickup upgrade could put it up in really any range. Michael Kelly has shown themselves to be a great manufacture, and I'm glad they're expanding. I highly recommend any of their products.
