PORT TECHNOLOGY

Acoustic guitar design has not changed significantly since the pre-World War II era. For several years now, the Michael Kelly team has been working on a fresh new approach to acoustic guitars. This has culminated with the development of the new Port Technology. At the core of this innovation is an offset soundhole approach coupled with an all new bracing design. Traditional soundhole placement interrupts a potentially potent “soundboard” area located between the neck and the bridge. By relocating the soundhole, Michael Kelly was able to bring this area to life, providing a louder and more resonate overall top performance. This performance enhancement is especially evident on models with integrated electronics where the added resonance collaborates with the bridge mounted piezo for undeniably better results.

Forte Koa 10

We have combined two of our most innovative acoustic guitar designs to bring you the Forte Koa 10, which features Michael Kelly's Port Technology along with our 10 string set up. Our Port Technology gives you a fresh new approach to top bracing and soundhole placement that results in a noticeable improvement in sonic performance. It is dynamic, responsive, and has a big, bold sound. The Forte Koa 10 features an aggressive cutaway, giving you more fingerboard access and great balance. Combine this with onboard Fishman electronics, 10 strings, and the Koa top, and you get a guitar that sounds as good as it looks.
