The Michael Kelly Hybrid Special is truly a unique guitar. You are given excellent craftsmanship when it comes to the look and feel of this guitar, as well as hybrid features and high-quality specs. You will find that playing the Hybrid Special will blow your mind with the versatility it has to offer. This is a guitar that is definitely geared for musicians who want a well-rounded guitar that can handle literally any playstyle, ranging from any acoustic style, to anything you would play on an electric guitar, whether it be blues, or even metal.

Excellent Craftsmanship
This gorgeous Michael Kelly Hybrid Special is a semi-hollow chambered mahogany body with a spalt maple top. The neck is of a mahogany wood topped with a pau ferro fretboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays. In addition to the high-quality wood, the neck is a modern C profile which allows a much more fast-paced action around the fretboard when you're playing and you're looking for comfort.

Hybrid Features
The electronic work on the Michael Kelly Hybrid Special is very unique in its own way. You have the option to switch between a Fishman pickup from under the saddle for acoustic guitar tone, or the Rockfield SWC push-pull coil tap pickups for electric guitar tone. Not only can you switch between these pickups, you can blend them as well providing even more options to experiment with when writing or recording.

High-Quality Specs
From the neck all the way down to the body, the Michael Kelly Hybrid Special has fantastic specs that are absolutely worth having. Gorgeous chrome Grover tuners, along with a rosewood MK acoustic style bridge to complement the synthetic graphite nut. As previously mentioned before, the Fishman Powerchip and Fishman under-saddle pickup are a huge addition to this guitar, as well as the Rockfield SWC pickups for the electric guitar tone.

Features:
  • Chambered Mahogany Body w/Spalt Maple Top
  • 24.75"-Scale Modern "C" Mahogany Neck w/Pau Ferro Fretboard
  • Rockfield® SWC Pickups w/ Push-Pull Coil Tap
  • Fishman® Powerchip and Fishman® Under-Saddle Pickup

Great guitar, but...

Great guitar. Super lightweight. Piezo works very well too. Returned it though due to neck dive.

Michael Kelly rocks hard

5

Man this guitar rocks! I've looked at the Michael Kelly guitars a few times at the local Sam Ash and liked them but never pulled the trigger on one. Got an email from Sam Ash for a sale and looked thru the site and found the Kelly's. I've always liked the look and the sound of them so I hit the buy on the hybrid model. I'm very happy I did, with the pickup under the saddle and the coil tap this baby rocks.

So inspiring

I am fairly new to guitar but ever since I received this guitar I can't put it down. I find it exciting to play and discover so many great tones. It offers so much and never disappoints in to sound it delivers. I could not be happier that I selected this guitar. I also have a Epiphone Les Paul traditional pro but never felt so great to play. It offers some good tones but this one is spectacular. It's easy to play not crazy heavy which is great and the neck is nice even up in the high frets. The ability to have the acoustic pickup is amazing. I dont care for the blending of the magnetic pickups as much as I would have thought but is an interesting sound that I am still learning new things after month of having it. I think this guitar will be with me forever.

Feels and Sounds Amazing

5

Has a great feel, not too heavy or light. The string action is on par with the top names, almost feels like a Les Paul. It can scream out a solo or strum a melody with the flick of a switch. I play on a Fender Champion 100 and it sounds great on any setting. Excellent purchase and excellent service from Sam Ash as usual.

AWESOME CONVERTIBLE

THIS IS A STUNNING INSTRUMENT. THE FINISH IS ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR. THE WOODEN PICKUP COVERS ARE A BEAUTIFUL TOUCH. THE PLAYABILITY BELIES A GUITAR COSTING MANY TIMES MORE. THE ELECTRIC PICKUPS SOUND THROATY AND ASSERTIVE WITHOUT BEING TOO DIRTY. THE ACOUISTIC PICKUP MAKES THIS GUITAR SOUND LIKE A BIG-BODIED DREADNOUGHT. THIS THONG KILLS!
