The 54OP might be called the black sheep of the 1950's collection. It avoids tradition in favor of a bolder look and tone. You can't help but notice the Open Pore finish on this Sungkai bodied guitar that delivers a more natural feel. This finish will preserve the natural acoustic properties of the tonewood while still providing excellent protection. The powerful Rockfield SWC humbucker can be coil-split via the push/pull tone knob to deliver single-coil tone. The fast and comfortable neck is enhanced with a 10" radius on the premium Ebony fretboard. So eschew tradition with your own 54OP.

I would buy this again


It's a great guitar well made looks pretty and the breach pic up sounds great and powerful. The only complaint is the neck pick up I don't like the way it sounds but that's my opinion I just change it for an good brand anlico one and now it's perfect for me for less than 500 bucks including the new neck pickup the only word I can say is WOW super fast playing neck great sound and beautiful loocking guitar



Would buy again


A great feeling guitar all around. For those that are into telecaster shapes, but love the sound of humbuckers, can find a balance with this guitar. The rockfield pickup has a nice warmth to it that definitely helps with any high gain tones that most people go for, and the sunkai body has a nice weight to it that wont turn you into Quasimodo after playing for a while. My only complaint is the fret edges are a little sharp, but a good filing will fix that up quick.



Fantastic guitar! Great quality and great tones!


I own three Michael Kelly telecasters each with a different pickup configuration. This is probably the best of the bunch or maybe the 53DB. It's a close race. The keyboard on this is fantastic, and the tones are to die for. Very chimy. It looks beautiful, and it plays even more beautifully. When I get my second stimulus check, I plan on buying another Michael Kelly guitar. I have four of them, counting the acoustic, and they are all well-made and well set up. I have a more expensive Fender Telecaster, but the MIchael Kelly's are right up there in quality, and probably better. I would highly recommend both the brand, and this specific guitar!



Went straight from the store to the gig!


First of all, I'm considering the price point of this guitar as I write this review. Having said that, I have quickly dropped the disclaimer of "well for an inexpensive guitar it's pretty good". It's a really good guitar for any price! I played one in the store and loved it. I had to go back and try it again because i didn't realize that it had a push pull knob for splitting. I ended up buying one that they had in the box. The factory check list that comes with the guitar was spot on. Action? Check! Intonation? check! etc. The fret edges don't cut you. The strings where clean and actually almost perfectly in tune. Sure, I'll monkey with things on it later but the sound and feel are incredible for a beginner or pro. The neck was straight and true. I went straight to a gig that night with the plastic still on the tuning pegs. Michael Kelly guitars? Who would have guessed!
