Michael Kelly: Koa Special Electro Acoustic Guitar

IMPORTANT INFORMATION. This item can only be delivered to UK addresses.
"Colour: Dark Tiger's Eye

The Enlightened 55 is an ultralight electric guitar with unexpectedly large tone. The core of the 55 is its humbucker and mini-humbucker pickup combination. We enhance that with the use of the Great 8 Mod to give you 8 different tone settings ranging from double humbucker to focused single coil. All are just a click or two away. The pickups are specially voiced to maximize the sonic performance of the Enlightened design. With all Enlightened models, we implemented an approach to making a lighter electric guitar that we carefully developed over several years as we focused to make the best sub-6 pound guitars on the market. We achieved this by changing the wood and making multiple modifications to the body and parts to deliver something special. The primary body wood on the Enlightened 55 is red cedar. We selected this member of the mahogany family because it delivers classic and full tonal performance but at a much lighter weight than typical tone woods. We topped it with quilt maple to make it visually striking. The weight was reduced further by thinning out the body and adding ports to the butt-end of the body. The Enlightened 55 also has been upgraded with an aluminum bridge and control plate for added weight relief along with enhanced tone. Often, light weight guitars are hard to play with a guitar strap because they are neck heavy, leading to neck-dive. For the Enlightened collection, we developed a new combination for strap-button placement to deliver improved balance. Tone, balance, versatility, and comfort are all hallmarks of the Enlightened 55.
