REVIEW

April 2014

The Michael Kelly Guitar Company took the best of what Leo Fender's pioneering guitar had to offer and with their 1950's Series, tries to improve a icon.

The 1957 has a tone all its own that doesn't make it a "copycat" guitar. This is not just a guitar you buy if you can't afford the "real thing." This guitar IS the real thing. Every guitar I own has its own level of mojo, and this Michael Kelly definitely has a distinct vibe, straight out of the box.

Great 8

The Great 8 electronics mod is one of our most demanded mods. With this mod we double the sonic spectrum of our two-humbucker instruments. You still have the full powered tone of each humbucker and the traditional settings to give you neck, bridge or both. With Great 8 we add two push-pull switches to the volume and tone knobs, that when pulled up one coil of the humbucker is disengaged giving you a cleaner single coil tone. You can control each pickup separately, maximizing your options. What can you do with 8 sonic options?

1957

The Michael Kelly 1957 delivers six stringed luxury. Highly figured quilt maple tops off a premium swamp ash body, delivering the perfect blend of tone and weight. The Rockfield SWV neck pickup is perfectly combined with a Seymour Duncan Little '59™ in the bridge. This combination is made more potent with the additional capabilities to switch each independently from humbucker to a traditional single coil performance. The body of the 1957 is perfectly outlined with real flame maple binding. Don't you deserve all of this?



REVIEWS:

"Its versatility, great sounding tone(s), and statement-making looks make it easy to recommend this to anyone who likes to play rock, blues, country, or just about anything else."
