Michael Kelly's unique design concepts keep grabbing our attention. This 5-string bass is something to behold. With gorgeous aesthetic concepts, peak performing electronics and fantastic craftsmanship, Michael Kelly wows us again with this acoustic-electric 5-string bass. This instrument is for bass players who love beauty in craftsmanship, both visual and sonic.

Gorgeous Aesthetic Concepts
It's not every day you see an acoustic-electric bass. It's certainly not every day that you see an acoustic-electric 5-string bass. And it's really rare to see an acoustic-electric 5-string bass that looks like this. The body of this bass features a Smoke Burst finish which gives way to a quilt maple top. Six-ply white-black binding runs the perimeter of the body. Abalone & pearl dragonfly inlay runs the length of the fretboard, up to the colorful, mesmerizing design surrounding the soundhole. The back of this guitar also sports a unique "dragonfly" design down the middle. All together it's a stunning visual package.

Peak Performing Electronics
The "electric" part of this acoustic-electric spares no expense. The Fishman Sonicore Under Saddle transducer is strategically placed to grab hold of all the low end sound from this sweet bass. It also features a Fishman Presys+, giving you the option to adjust bass, middle, and treble, as well as fine-tune the "notch" and "brilliance" settings, and engage the phase feature. This bass also has an onboard tuner.

Fantastic Craftsmanship
To have such an advanced instrument, the foundation has to be solid—and it is. Michael Kelly used an all quilt maple body and dovetail construction to ensure this bass plays well. The neck is made from mahogany and sports a rosewood fretboard. It also has a rosewood MK acoustic bass bridge. It's all around quality built to produce quality sound.

Things You Will Get:




This is an amazing bass. I love everything about it and I'm glad I was introduced



Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5


Nice quality piece.



Really nice instrument at a very reasonable price.


I already owned two other solid body electric bass guitars but find myself mostly playing in an acoustic trio. I was looking for an acoustic bass to match the rest of the group and the Dragonfly 5 covered two of my needs. The other bass instruments I have are both 4 string and can't be heard without some type of amplification. In addition to being a beautiful instrument with striking inlays on both the body and neck, it plays beautifully and with the on board electronics you can make it sound any way you like if the circumstances call for it. The tuner is very accurate. Really nice ax!



Nice bass. Can't wait to show it off.


This bass really sounds good. Made a slight intonation adjustment out of the box. Lower B string allows for playing higher on the neck for a smoother sound with no ringing. Looks beautiful. Has a built in tuner. Reason for slight downgrade is because it doesn't come with a case or gig bag. I'm very particular about keeping the instrument pristine.



SamAsh dreams come true!!


Awesome color, brand and details. Fast delivery and great attention online. Thanks SamAsh!!
