Flamed Koa is one of those exotic woods that acoustic players have always been drawn to. This Koa Special guitar is Michael Kelly's answer to the demand. The top is a beautiful Flame Koa blend combined with grand auditorium body to give you a little larger sound chamber while retaining the comfort of a cutaway.
It features a Zero-End Pin bridge that enhances tone and makes string changes quicker and easier than a standard bridge pin design, ideal for live preformers. Also you get a side soundport that acts like a personal monitor.
The Koa Special is equipped with an excelent Fishman pickup system. The under saddle bridge captures the full and natural sound of this great instrument. You can control the volume and adjust the tone with two onboard controls, located in the soundhole. Discrete and very easy to use whilst maintanining the natural acoustic look of the guitar.
