The Michael Kelly Forte Exotic JE has a very striking appearance all thanks to the unique body deisgn and Java Ebony top. The styling is enhanced thanks to a bold satin black finish on the Okoume back and sides and the addition of black binding and hardware. The sonic performance is just as striking as the Forte Exotic's look. These woods combine to give you a full-bodied rich and deep tone.
We further improve that performance via our Port Technology which positions the soundhole off center and opens up a larger soundboard. Fitted with a Fishman electronics system including both volume and tone controls. Located on the inside of the soundhole on the top where you can easily access them and adjust on the fly, negating the need for a control panel on the outside of the guitar.
