Popular Patriot gets its stripes
For more than a decade, the Patriot has been one of the most award-winning archtop single cutaways on the market. Continuing this honored tradition, Michael Kelly Guitar Co. introduces the Custom Collection Patriot Striped Ebony electric guitar.
The Michael Kelly Custom Collection is a special grouping of limited-edition, short-run products with special woods, inlays, and hard-to-create specialty colors. An ideal addition to the series, the Patriot Striped Ebony features a distinctive striped ebony top and mahogany body with five-ply white-black binding, as well as a mahogany set neck with single-ply white binding and a double-adjustable truss rod. The rosewood fretboard has 22 medium jumbo frets with pearl bone inlays, a 24.75’’ scale length, 12’’ radius, and 1-11/16’’ synthetic graphite nut.
Michael Kelly Guitars has carefully selected all the specs and features on the Patriot Striped Ebony. But it’s the Great 8 boutique wiring mod that really helps set the guitar apart from the rest. The wiring mod is a double push/pull coil-tap that allows for a two-volume, two-push/pull tone configuration. When combined with the three-way switch and MK-PAF-Plus pickups, the Patriot Striped Ebony is one of those guitars that is capable of getting players through almost any gig. The string-thru body and tune-o-matic style bridge with additional chrome hardware finishes add to the guitar’s rich and unique look.
Production of the Patriot Striped Ebony is limited, with slight variations to each guitar. Everyday low price $499.95. For more information, click here.
