Michael Kelly Forte Port Exotic Series Ziricote Acoustic Electric Guitar
1 in stock (can be backordered)
Acoustic guitar design has not changed significantly since the pre-World War II era. For several years now, the Michael Kelly team has been working on a fresh new approach to acoustic guitars. This has culminated with the development of the new Port Technology. At the core of this innovation is an offset soundhole approach coupled with an all new bracing design.
The Forte Port features Michael Kelly’s Port Technology. This fresh new approach to top bracing and soundhole placement results in a noticeable improvement in sonic performance. It is dynamic, responsive and has a big bold sound. The Forte Port features an aggressive cutaway giving you more fingerboard access and great balance.
The Forte Port is equipped with an active Fishman Presys electronics system. The under saddle bridge pickup captures the full and natural sound of the Forte.
