When you first lay eyes on the Forte Exotic Zebra, you can't help but notice the striking appearance. That is thanks to the exotic Zebra top. The styling is enhanced thanks to the Okoume back and sides and the addition of black binding and hardware. The sonic performance is just as striking as the Forte Exotic's look. These woods combine to give you a full-bodied rich and deep tone. We further improve that performance via our Port Technology which positions the soundhole off center and opens up a larger soundboard.

Want to plug it in? No problem. The Forte Exotic JE includes a complete Fishman system. It is active and includes volume, contour and phase controls along with a built in tuner.

Port Technology
Acoustic guitar design has not changed significantly since the pre-World War II era. For several years now, the Michael Kelly team has been working on a fresh new approach to acoustic guitars. This has culminated with the development of the new Port Technology. At the core of this innovation is an offset soundhole approach coupled with an all new bracing design.

I have needed an acoustic guitar for the studio that sounds good for awhile. I have to say that this guitar surpassed that....it sounds great!! I haven't played it a lot, but I am happy with it so far. It sounds as good as guitars at 3 times the cost. Good Job



In love with this guitar!


I'm learning to play and needed an affordable upgrade to my first guitar that I can grow into. I love it! It's beautiful and sounds incredible!



Guitar is "comfortable" to play.


Michael Kelly is fast becoming one of my favorite guitar manufacturers. The placement of the sound holes allows me, the player, the ability to hear the guitar like I am part of the audience instead of hearing the sound as it comes back to me. It is by far one of the easiest steel string A/E to play and the sound is very rich.



I would by it again


This sounds amazing and plays amazing



Glad I bought it


This has a great sound. Looks good and plays well.



My Favorite Acoustic Guitar


This guitar looks awesome and sounds awesome. It has a unique shape and produces quality sounds. it has great tuners that doesn't get out of tune for a long time. a nice comfortable neck to hold and sizable fretboard to play in.
