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!
