The Michael Kelly Hybrid 55 gives you everything you could ever need in one single instrument. Capable of covering all sonic ground thanks to incredibly versatile electronics, the Hybrid 55 also features beautiful tonewoods and provides a superb playing feel that any guitarist will appreciate. Not only does this guitar do it all, but it does it all really well! If you're a gigging guitarist looking for a sonically flexible guitar to lighten up your load, you have to get your hands on this Hybrid 55.

Covers All Sonic Ground
In an ode to the original Michael Kelly 55 Series of guitars, the Hybrid 55 features the same pickup configuration as the original 55 series of guitars, sporting a Rockfield Mini Humbucker in the neck position & a Rockfield SWC Humbucker in the bridge position. In tandem with the Great 8 Mod, these pickups offer amazing traditional tonal colors, and can take you anywhere from those beefy humbucker tones to a singing single-coil spank at the push or pull of a knob. What really kicks this Hybrid up a notch is the Fishman Powerbridge, which gives you instant access to lush acoustic tones right at your fingertips!  

Beautiful Tonewoods
The beautiful korina body adds more of a vintagy feel to this guitar, creating a sweet midrange with heightened responsiveness. The korina body is topped with a stunning flame maple top adding clarity and definition to your sound while providing an absolutely breathtaking look.

Superb Playing Feel
The Modern "C" maple neck gives the Hybrid 55 a comfortable, contemporary feel. With a 10.5"-16" compound fingerboard radius, you can expect that this guitar will deliver an incredible playing experience whether you are soloing or playing chords.

Body workmanship very clean and detailed. Neck,tuning machines and fret board could use a little more attention

Great bang for the buck!


I currently have a Michael Kelly hybrid electric and a tele so after un boxing and playing this model it does everything as designed. Sounds are perfect fit and finish on the body is as good if not better than higher priced competitors. Three issue first fret work leaves a little to be desired need frets polished,fret board seems dull and needs to be oiled, have been having trouble keeping it in tune may just be the strings but will probably replace tuners with higher quality locking units. Overall very happy with purchase and Sam ash co. PS. go ahead and buy an AB switch if you don't have one!



Close but no cigar.


Acoustic pickup was defective.



Hybrid 55


This is by far the best playing guitar I've owned and I have 50.



Love the folk/rock playability


I switch back and forth between acoustic and electric for duo gigs and was intrigued by the electronics on this guitar. After reading a number of reviews I bought it. And I love it! High quality at a gig price. Excellent playability and great flexibility. Highly recommend if you're a folk/rock player.



Great Guitar for players at any level.


I LOVE this guitar. I primarily play American Made G&L Guitars and own several from 1980 to 2008 model. I also play Martin acoustic guitars. I needed a guitar that could give me some more tonal variety leaning toward acoustic without compromising the electric. While I still really love my G&L's and Martins, this hybrid gives me the ability to get a near acoustic sound without having to change guitars. In church type settings and small venue or open mic settings this has become my new GO TO guitar. Feels great, plays great and sounds great. For the money... the best value guitar I have ever purchased.





Sam Ash sets the standard for service. Guitar arrived timely, inspected prior to shipping. Second MK hybrid for me - plays as well as first. While won't replace my Taylor, adds to repertoire of tones. Sounds richer with touch of chorus. Only issue was FedEx. After several days of delay had to pick up myself. Not Sam Ash fault, but would suggest using alternate mode delivery. Guitar was also price matched to a Sam Ash coupon a few days after sale: no hassle, no issues. They even followed up by phone and email to make sure I was happy. I am in no way or shape being compensated for this review, I genuinely am this happy with the service and price.
