Another Kelly Purchase


I also own a Kelly 10 string, both have a great tone and I got them for a great cost. These guitars are an eye catcher as well



Only place to buy a guitar from!


First guitar to learn on.... very nice tone for beginner, sales people were amazing and helpful....made me feel comfortable and gave me many options and good advice. Not pushy at all, i felt like they really cared.





This is a great guitar with a reasonable price and good sound. I haven't had any issue with this guitar since I purchased it. My previous guitar could easily go untuned when keeping it for long under up and down temperatures. But, this guitar has proven its quality, so far. I am glad that I purchased it and recommend it for all, particularly for those who intend to take its first guitar lessons.



Sam Ash a great place!


My experiences so far have been fabulous with the Richmond Virginia store as Daniel and Sara go beyond the call of duty to keep me happy The guitar tech's there fix your purchase if any you may have pronto. I could give them 10 stars if possible.



Sam Ash sells beautiful products!


Excellent guitar, plays wonderful, sounds great! I've purchased a few guitars from Sam Ash and even though they are used they arrive looking new!



I'd buy again because it's better than what I've had.


This was my first real guitar so its safe to say that it sounded quite a bit better than any one I owned previously. Personally I like how the design allows me to get the bottom frets easier. Its also just a beautifully crafted guitar. Not much bad comes to mind about it since I'm not so experienced and can't tell about the little things.





Interesting design. Extremely lightweight. Needed new strings and a general seup, but I like the sound. Fairly easy to play.



Every time I play my Michael Kelly I smile from ear to ear


Guitar plays like a dream with amazing tone and resonance. Comes fully setup, with top notch D'Addario coated strings. For real this sounds like a $1200 guitar. I will get another one later in the year so I can have it set on alternate tunings, in a different color of course. Every time I play my Michael Kelly I smile from ear to ear. I could not be more pleased.
