A versatile guitar with a vintage touch, the Michael Kelly Enlightened 55 is the perfect instrument to add to your guitar collection.  

Coil Tapping For Supreme Versatility

The Enlightened 55 is wired with Michael Kelly's Great 8 Mod which stretches the guitars Humbucker and Mini-humbucker pickup combination into you 8 different tone settings, ranging from powerful Double Humbucker to Focused single coil. It's all just a click away thanks to dual Push/Pull Coil Taps & a 3-way selected blade switch.

Think Lighter

Developed to be 30% Lighter than the average Solid Body Electric, the Enlightened 55 uses a Red Cedar Body, which offers a tone similar to Mahogany, without its heft. The weight was reduced further by thinning out the body and adding chambers at the bottom. An aluminum bridge and control plate adds further weight relief along with enhancing the overall tone.

Playability With Style

The Red Cedar body is topped with quilt maple for a gorgeous Dark Tigers Eye finish, further emphasized with genuine flame maple binding . The Maple Neck is topped with a Pau Ferro fretboard, utilizing the modern "C" style neck profile for comfort and playability.

Features:

  • Enlightened Weight Relieved Red Cedar Body w/Quilt Maple Top & Genuine Flame Maple Binding
  • 25.5"-Scale Modern "C" Maple Neck w/Pau Ferro Fretboard
  • Great 8 Mod
  • Rockfield Mini Humbucker-L & Rockfield SWC Humbucker-L (Specially voiced for Enlightened model)
  • No Case Included

I was looking for a good, versatile guitar that wouldn't break the bank or break my back - this one was it. I can play it all day, and just love the tone from such a light-weight guitar.

I absolutely love this guitar!

A thing of beauty. When I saw it at the store, I thought it was a $1000.00 plus guitar. After playing it and learning the price, I knew I had to have it. Nice action, great tones, and easier to play (with my short fingers) than a Fender Tele. Even though the scale is the same, the neck profile must be the difference. You can't go wrong with this one.

KILLER GUITAR

5

THIS GUITAR IS THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS. IT INCORPORATES THE TIMELESS ASTHETIC FROM SIXTY YEARS AGO WITH SOME FANTASTIC MODERN APPOINTMENTS. THE BRIDGE IS A VAST IMPROVEMENT OVER THE OLD DESIGN. INTONATION IS NOT A PROBLEM ON THIS GUITAR. THE PICKUP CONFIGURATION BRINGS A VERY VERSATILE SONIC PALETTE TO THIS INSTRUMENT. GREAT JOB!
