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 Port Jr Ziricote

Style, substance, and convenience — you get it all with the Forte Port Ziricote Jr. One look tells you this is more than a travel buddy.

The shorter scale length and body size makes it the ideal guitar to take to a practice or performance. Its offset soundhole delivers a noticeable improvement in sonic performance thanks to the substantial amount of uninterrupted soundboard between the neck and bridge. You’ll hear it from the very first strum!

The Forte Port Jr. can dial up a great direct sound from the Fishman® Presys II preamp with bass and treble controls and a built-in tuner. The cutaway body shape gives you access to the highest frets while the Zero End Pin bridge means string changes are super-simple. A lightweight gig bag is included with the guitar. The Forte Port Jr. will quickly become a favorite for songwriting sessions, travel gigs and in the studio.
