Micheal Kelly guitar thoughts. I love it. under 600 dollars. Boutique. Too over the top?
Beautiful guitar. I can’t say I have the wardrobe to carry it, though. I have a friend who has a MK Tele type. I’m convinced it’s a good value.
Looks good from here.
I confess, this intrigues me...
Love it - beautiful guitar.
The chap (time-served luthier and professional guitarist) who is doing some upgrades for me plays one of the hybrid MKs - but he's taken out the "acoustic" pickup and fitted a humbucker. It's a lovely guitar and, from what I can gather, has been extremely reliable.
Coincidentally, I've been looking at some of the 50s T-types and they do look very good value compared to some of the manufacturers I've seen. I've been thinking about getting one that would take a couple of P90s.
I think they look great. I wouldn't use the term "boutique" though since to me that implies limited numbers and expensive prices. a Jet Terwilliger is a boutique guitar.
I've had my eye on the MK Hybrid 55 for a while. I find the idea of one guitar for acoustic & electric sounds very attractive. This is kind of an electric-acoustic. It has a master volume (push/pull coil tap), master tone (push/pull coil tap), 3 way blade switch to manage the "electric guitar" equipped with a Rockfield Mini Humbucker @ the neck, and a Rockfield SWC Humbucker @ the bridge. And then there's a separate volume knob to manage the Fishman Powerbridge for the "acoustic guitar" + a 3-way toggle to select electric, blend or acoustic. I'd prefer a maple neck.
The MK shop is very responsive to questions. But I'm not at all impressed with the videos I've listened to >for acoustic sounds<, and the one MK dealer I can get to easily from home doesn't respond at all. IDK. Right now I have a versatile semi-hollow (a modded Gretsch Thinline) that I love and a bunch of acoustic-electrics. No practical reason to buy this guitar.
I had the 1953 tele. It was comfortable to play but it was HEAVY! But it seemed pretty well built.
We have an MK strat copy at the shop I repair in. It looks beautiful. Mahogany body, sweet flamed top, Birdseye neck, abalone dots, very pretty.
Hardware is very nice.
Pickups are "Rock something or other", I forget the exact name. They sound nice.
It's a great playing guitar for not a lot of money.
It weighs about 753,000 pounds.
I admit that is some beautiful craftsmanship, not my cup of tea, but I do admire the build.
I read that they were Korean imports with quality and appearance comparable to Schecter guitars.
When Reverb told a history of the company that their exact words. Boutique guitars at an affordable price. I had never heard of the company. So they do look boutique. And they are affordable.
Is that a mother of pearl body or a white-stained quilted maple top? I didn't see one with that finish on their site.
I recently bought a CC50Fralin, Telecaster.
The build quality and sound are beyond what you pay for.
Their looks speak for themselves.
Check one out if you get a chance or better yet, make the chance.
You won't be disappointed.
I love the look of this blem, which supposedly came out too green to be sold full price as their "Blue Jean Wash" finish...
boutique like the genesis car?
Mother of toilet seat!
I like them, always glad to see a manufacture putting out something a bit different.
