Michael Kelly 1957 Amber Trans

Electric guitar with T-style body shape from 1957 series that delivers six stringed luxury, with its highly figured quilt maple that tops off a premium swamp ash body, delivering the perfect blend of tone and weight. The Rockfield SWV neck pickup is perfectly combined with a Seymour Duncan Little '59 in the bridge. This combination is made more potent with the additional capabilities to switch each independently from humbucker to a traditional single coil performance via pus/pull coil taps of both Master Tone and Master Volume controls. The body of this model is also perfectly outlined with real flame maple binding. Its bolt-on, modern “C”-shaped maple neck features a dual-action truss rod and 1950’s-style headstock. It is also fitted with a maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays. Scale length is 647.7 mm, nut width is 43 mm and fingerboard radius is 10”. Other features include standard bone nut fret, a 3-way blade pickup switch, chrome hardware including Grover tuners and a T-style bridge, and D’Addario EXL110 strings (gauges: .010-.046). Amber Trans colour design.

Overall impression


Nachdem ich mir im Januar die Michael Kelly 55 Hybrid gekauft hatte, von der ich sehr begeistert bin (siehe Bewertung), habe ich mir aufgrund der Rabattaktion auch noch die MK 1957 Amber Trans zugelegt. Ebenfalls ein wirklich schönes, gut verarbeitetes und vielseitiges Instrument, zu einem erstaunlich günstigem Preis. Warum weiter Instrumente von Fender kaufen, wenn man zum halben Preis mindestens ebenbürtige von Michael Kelly bekommen kann. Offenbar weiß man in Korea inzwischen auch, wie man sehr gute Gitarren bauen kann. Der Punketabzug bei Qualität, weil das Volumepoti knistert, was bei einer neuen Gitarre nicht der Fall sein sollte. Ansonsten alles top. Kaufempfehlung!
