When you want to learn the sort of diversity that can come out of one luthier's workshop, Michael Kelly is the perfect label to check out. The company was founded by the man himself in 1999, first making mandolins and acoustic bass, before branching out into what's now their biggest series: acoustic guitars. Whichever of these instruments you're looking for, Michael Kelly's options are sure to impress.
Naturally, the first decision to make when considering a Michael Kelly instrument is which type you want to play. Then, you'll be ready to choose the one that best fits your own style. Searching for a guitar? You'll find a wide variety to tempt you. If you're a bluegrass or folk player, you might like to take a look at the Bayou E Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar first and foremost. Or, if you like the classics, any of Michael Kelly's acoustics could be the right fit.
Want something truly special? If so, turn your attention to the Michael Kelly Hybrid Special Spalted Maple Top Electric Guitar. This gorgeous instrument really takes advantage of the best of both worlds, featuring a hollow body based on Michael Kelly's acoustic expertise and loaded with high-end electronics. The result is a guitar that could easily be the most versatile instrument you'll ever hold - it goes effortlessly from hard rock to smooth jazz, making it an outstanding choice for any guitarist.
Of course, we can't forget the instruments that made Michael Kelly famous in the first place. For bassists, models like the Dragonfly 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass offer an amazing one-two punch of character and playability. And no mandolinist should let this lineup go by without giving serious consideration to the Legacy Dragonfly Acoustic-Electric Mandolin and Michael Kelly A O Mandolin.
When it comes to acoustic and acoustic-electric stringed instruments, nobody else does it quite like Michael Kelly. It says a lot that a brand not even two decades old is building instruments that can compete with, and even surpass, the veteran luthiers that have been around for ages. When you try out a Michael Kelly instrument of your own, it won't take you long to see, feel and hear the reasons for their success: these guitars, basses and mandolins are second to none.
