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.LEARN MORE
The Forte Port Koa Jr. gives you our Port Technology in a smaller body size and shorter scale length. This fresh new approach to top bracing and soundhole placement results in a noticeable improvement in sonic performance. It is dynamic, responsive, and has a big bold sound. The Forte Port Koa Jr. also has a cutaway giving you more fingerboard access and great balance. The unique side port acts as a personal monitor for the player so it is easier to hear what your audience is hearing when you play.
