Oozing elegance and style with superb playability and tone, Michael Kelly introduces the Patriot Instinct Bold to the MK Custom Collection. Offering premium appointments, extensive sonic possibilities, and high-quality hardware, you can be sure this beauty delivers on all fronts. If you're looking for a pro-quality axe with striking aesthetics, amazing sonic flexibility, and outstanding playability at a working musician's price, lo and behold this Patriot Instinct Bold!

Premium Appointments
It's always been extremely difficult to find an instrument of such exceptional quality and upscale style at this price point... until now! With the Patriot Instinct Bold, you get top-notch features such as a visually striking quilt maple top over a mahogany back, a 24.75"-scale mahogany neck with a pau ferro fingerboard, genuine abalone and pearl inlays throughout, and a triple bound body.

Extensive Sonic Possibilities
The Patriot Instinct Bold is not only a feast for the eyes, but it offers an impressive array of tonal options thanks to dual Rockfield SWC humbuckers and MK's signature Great 8 Mod. Providing you with 8 unique sonic possibilities, the Great 8 Mod gives this guitar the ability easily transition from full, warm, powerful humbucker tones to clean single-coil sounds at the pull of a knob. This can be done on both the bridge and the neck humbuckers while the 3-way switch gives you the flexibility to either blend the sound of the pickups or use them on their own.

High-Quality Hardware
What would this Patriot Instinct Bold be without fine, rock-solid hardware? Rounding out this finely crafted package, this stunning axe comes equipped with a set of Grover tuners and string-thru-body Tune-O-Matic bridge for unparalleled sustain, performance, and tuning stability.

Great guitar! Really beautiful.


Looks much better "in-person" than it does in pictures. Really a lovely guitar that is very fun to play.

Great to play!

Great Guitar


I am a fairly new guitar player and am currently taking lessons at Sam Ash. A benefit is being able to use a different instrument at each lesson. After using and testing 9 different guitar's, I selected the Michael Kelly. Good feel, easy to play, and great sound out of a Fender 20 watt amp. Highly recommend.
