Overview

Michael Kelly presents the Patriot Premium, an electric guitar for the player who loves the tone of the classic EMG 81/85 combination or the player who wants a "throw down and look bad ass while doing it" guitar.

Armed with all the superior features to make the Patriot guitar a tonal beast, the Premium is also adorned with a whole host of envy-worthy appearance upgrades. In the tone department, you'll find the classic EMG 81/85 pickup configuration, a TonePros bridge, ebony fingerboard, set-neck construction and a mahogany body with a solid 1/2" maple cap that gives the Premium guitar a tailored metal growl. For convenience, Grover tuners help keep things in tune. To ensure that you'll look as amazing as you'll sound, Michael Kelly adds quilt maple or flame maple to the top in 3 of the 4 striking finishes.

Real pearl fingerboard markers and full abalone binding on the body, neck and matching headstock create a subtle yet unmistakable reminder that the Patriot Premium is one high-end electric guitar. For your next appearance on stage or garage jam put a premium on your tone and check out the Michael Kelly Patriot Premium.

Tiger Eye Premium New 12/25/09

Comments about Michael Kelly Patriot Premium Electric Guitar:

This guitar is definately worth every penny. My QM top is perfect. Gives you a darker brown mesh without direct light and gives off a goldish color with sunlight. Binding is impressive. Fret edges smooth, the grover buttons are larger than my other two axes with grovers which I like. Tuning is stable. The emg 81 is a bit bright the 85 is full and bubbly for leads. I love the control knobs. They are fast, smooth and unique. Medium heavy body and fast neck, nice handfull. Fretboard is slick ebony. Back of body is a dark cherry red transparent. Seperate plate for battery compartment. My recommendation is if you want upgrades for small cost, its a no brainer- metal player or not. Which Im not, this is a work of art in itself. My demo of this guitar is at cryptonet007 on youtube for your viewing pleasure. Late Steve

winner hands down

By Chris

Comments about Michael Kelly Patriot Premium Electric Guitar:

I went in with the intent to buy an Epiphone Prophesy Les Paul and walked out with the Micheal Kelly Patriot Premium. I tried several different makes and models, but everything on this one felt right. Granted how something feels for weight and neck contour are individual matters, but for me this won hands down.

great value-great place to do business

Comments about Michael Kelly Patriot Premium Electric Guitar:

I've owned dozens of guitars in my over 45 years of playing. The Micheal Kelly Patriot Premiium model is at the top of the list in quality and playability. I don't think you will find a better unit for the price, and the Guitar Center Pros made the puchase amazingly easy.

great guitar

By Toby

from Eureka, CA

Comments about Michael Kelly Patriot Premium Electric Guitar:

so basically i bought this guitar about two years ago, back when this model still came with humbucker pickups, and it was a really, really good guitar. about a year later i won some money at a football game and decided to spend it on gibson humbuckers, but after i put them on the michael kelly it didn't even make a noticeable difference. of course, this is mostly irrelevant to you anyways as a potential buyer because it comes with EMGs now anyways. in conclusion, i would say that factoring in the pickups, as well as the and all of the other aspects, this is a great guitar for a great price, and you should definitely buy it.
