The Michael Kelly Enlightened 55 is a phenomenal instrument to have in your arsenal thanks to excellent tonal versatility and a super comfortable lightweight design.

Great 8 Mod Electronics:

The sound of the Enlightened 55 starts with the custom voiced Rockfield Mini Humbucker and a SWC Humbucker Pickup in the bridge position. Push/Pull controls on both the volume & tone knob allow you to split the humbuckers and create some delicious single coil tones. Overall, the Enlightened offers an impressive pallet of 8 different sound settings.

Think Lighter

The design of the Enlightened was inspired by the strict goal of creating a lighter instrument that didn’t sacrifice tone or sustain. Constructed of Red Cedar,(Cedar has a similar sound to mahogany without the extra heft associated with that wood)the body of the guitar  is thinner than a typical Electric and has chambers added to shed additional weight. Further relief came through the use of an aluminum bridge. For additional playability, strap button placement was adjusted to create balance and prevent the neck from diving.

Smooth Look

The Red Cedar body is topped with a stunning Flame Maple Top, further enhanced by flame maple binding. The Maple neck is shaped into a comfortable Modern C Profile and topped with a 22 Fret Pau Ferro Fingerboard

Why We Love It 

30% Lighter than your average Electric, incredible sonic versatility, and the unique dark tigers eye flame top aesthetic make the Enlightened an exceptional guitar. Our Sam Ash experts classify the Enlightened as the perfect combination of great tone and supreme comfort.
