REVIEW

May 2015

Michael Kelly brings a lot to the table with the 1965; marrying classic design with high-end appointments that are typically found on guitars priced at twice the price. The flexible pickup configurations sound classic and contemporary at the same time and the construction is solid and aesthetically pleasing. The Michael Kelly 1965 offers a visually striking, great playing package...

EPIC ELEVEN MOD

The Epic Eleven electronics hot-rod mod delivers maximum sonic versatility. With Epic Eleven you get to break away from the typical 5 tones limitation of a traditional 5-way switch wiring. The secret sauce is the added mini-toggle, which allows you to add in the neck pickup into configurations where it would not normally be available. The second way that the Epic Eleven Mod adds sonic options is with a push-pull on the Master Volume which allows you to coil tap the bridge humbucker, switching from hum to a vintage single coil tone.

1965

The perfect boutique double-cut for today's player. The body is swamp ash with a highly figured quilt maple top, we then perfect the body with the addition of real flame maple binding. The maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard with a compound radius, this is made for today's more complex playing requirements.

The 1965 is upgraded with our Epic Eleven electronics mod. With this hot rodded approach you can access 11 unique sounds. The '65 comes with Rockfield pickups voiced specifically for this guitar.

We finish this off by adding a smooth two point tremolo and locking Grover tuners. Get your hands on a 1965 for yourself to enjoy this perfect combination.
