Michael Kelly Hybrid Special Spalted Maple Top
The first time a split personality is a good thing.
The Michael Kelly Hybrid Special can deliver screaming electric and sweet acoustic tones from one single guitar. The Hybrid Special is the perfect stage and studio instrument. Instantly switch it from full acoustic tone to ripping electric guitar! Want more? The Hybrid Special can also BLEND both tones together for almost infinite tonal combinations ” creating endless variations of a two-axe wall of sound attack!
Dual Amp Capability
If you are performing live with a Michael Kelly Hybrid Special or using one in the studio, you will love its dual amp capabilities! When using a Y cable (sold separately), the Hybrid sends a signal from the acoustic pickup to one amp and the electric pickup signal to another. Since nothing can reproduce an acoustic signal like a full-range acoustic amp, this will really enhance your performance! You can also run directly into two channels on a mixing board for live or studio applications that will allow you to tailor the sound and maximize each tone. Don't have two amps or a mixing board? Don't worry. With a standard guitar cable on the Hybrid Special Guitar, you get a single signal that you can plug into any amp. The amazing Hybrid Special gives you a vast array of tonal possibilities, with 2 Rockfield SWC coil-tapped humbuckers and very versatile controls.
