This Rosewood Fretboard Michael Kelly 53DB features a striking flame maple top with a Dark Tiger's Eye finish. Just like the rest of the Michael Kellys this solid body electric guitar delivers boutique style features at an affordable price. For sale online and in our Glasgow Shop. Fast delivery to the UK and Europe.

The Dark Tiger's Eye Michael Kelly 1953 Double Bucker features 2 humbucker pickups and a Rosewood Fretboard.

Big tone and versatility are the calling card of the Michael Kelly 53DB Dark Tiger's Eye. With a double humbucker configuration, you start with a full array of classic tones often missing from a guitar of this style. Michael Kelly then added their custom electronics modification called the Great 8 allowing you to switch those humbuckers into a single-coil tone. This is done using two provided push-pull pots. Have fun with these eight distinctive tonal options!

The body on the 1953 DB is made from alder and has a great looking flame maple top. The instrument is feature-packed and fun to play.

The Great 8 electronics mod is one of their most demanded mods. With this mod we double the sonic spectrum of our two-humbucker instruments. You still have the full powered tone of each humbucker and the traditional settings to give you neck, bridge or both. With the Michael Kelly Great 8 we add two push-pull switches to the volume and tone knobs, that when pulled up one coil of the humbucker is disengaged giving you a cleaner single coil tone. You can control each pickup separately, maximizing your options. What can you do with 8 sonic options?
