SO COOL!

By Bassmanrp

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

You will spend big bucks to get a bass that sounds and plays as good as the Club. I do a 3piece accoustic gig and this thing rocks. Had it for two years now and the best purchase i've every made from GC including my Jazz. Awesome Bass!

very nice bass

By John

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

I am very pleased with this instrument, which I bought at my local GC store. It has a beautiful tone, good action, and fills a niche in that it gives me a nice acoustic sound in situations where neither an upright bass or an electric will do. Its sound works very well in the softer Jobim type sambas, as well as the older standards (with treble and mids cut back), and it also has a more contemporary sound (by boosting the mids a bit). A very good value. The only slight negative is there is a bit of string-against-fret rattle, particularly the higher frets, but it hasn't kept me from enjoying this instrument greatly.

Great Bass, Great Sound

By Jay Matthews

from Boston, MA

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

Another quality product from Michael Kelly. As many have, I have experienced many many acoustic bass frustrations in the past. Not now. This is the first acoustic bass I have ever had full ownership of and the last one I plan to ever buy. Everything is great about it from the sound to the size. It has a warm, rich tone to it and is not too big like some acoustic basses. The only thing I'd recommend is some new strings. The once that come with it are really squeaky, too hard to move on and leave a black scuff all over your fingers. Overall great bass!

Like no other!

By Kaci

from Lincoln, NE

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

I own the Michael Kelly Club Custom Electric-Acoustic Bass and I have loved it from the moment I picked it up in the store. The tone is sweet, it is easy to play and it is the perfect compliment to any song. I have 3 electric basses and I was looking for something different to add some richness and texture to some of our mellow numbers. This bass does that and more. I am finding myself writing music just for this bass! Not only is this bass beautiful (the mahogany is gorgeous) but it delivers quality sound that you would expect from a bass twice the price. I played several basses in the store and there was never a second when I considered buying any other electric/acoustic. For a bass player on a budget, this bass gives you a great value and a nice full sound.

AWESOME!

By BassGuy811

from Los Angelos, CA

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

Michael Kelly is the sweetest acoustic bass ever! It's so perfect! It's got great tone and it sounds great when it's hooked up to your amp! And it's really fun to play with when your outdoors with your friends playing all acoustic. If you ever have to play an all acoustic song with a band, this acoustic bass is definately the one to use!
