Michael Kelly Forte Port X Acoustic Guitar - Partial Eclipse

Product Description

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 X starts with the Michael Kelly Port Technology. This fine-tuned combination of bracing and an offset soundhole placement works great with this all quilt maple body. Available in two distinctive colors.

Easily amplify your Port X thanks to the included active Fishman electronics system. Control the volume and adjust the tone with two onboard controls, located in the soundhole. Discrete, but very easy to use and all without any holes cut into the side of the instrument.
