Lightweight, affordable, and full of tone, the Michael Kelly Patriot Enlightened electric guitar is a powerhouse.

The Michael Kelly Patriot Enlightened electric guitar is extremely efficient and does its job very well. With the use of its Great 8 modification and its excellent craftsmanship by Michael Kelly, it truly does have a real unique sound that can be manipulated in many ways, going from an in-your-face tone to a very smooth and simple clean tone. The Rockman SWC-L pickups are a huge part of this guitars sound as well. This is a perfectly well-rounded guitar that can be used in just about any musical situation, whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or professional musician.

Great 8 Modification
The Great 8 mod that has been done for the Patriot Enlightened is a powerful device that can be used to truly explore your world of tone. Switching back and forth from single-coil to humbuckers at the push or pull of a knob, as well as double the power of your pickups gives you a huge range of options to play with when it comes to finding your sound without having to buy 4 different guitars with these styles to try them. The Patriot Enlightened has it all.

Excellent Craftsmanship
This gorgeous piece of art is crafted with a red cedar body complemented by a quilt maple top and classic cream triple bound binding. The neck is made of mahogany topped with a beautiful rosewood fingerboard.  The modern C neck profile makes it much easier and enjoyable to play as well.

Rockman SWC-L Pickups
The Rockman SWC-L pickups are perfect for this guitar.  Versatile in every way, your tonal options are practically limitless when it comes to the Michael Kelly Patriot Enlightened guitar.  With the power of the Great 8 mod, and the partner in crime in this dynamic duo is the Rockman SWC-L pickups which will be manipulated by the modification.  Great pickups, great modification, great electronic work.
