(PRESS RELEASE): For more than a decade, the Patriot has been one of the most award-winning archtop single cutaways on the market. Continuing this honored tradition, Michael Kelly Guitar Co. introduces the Custom Collection Patriot Striped Ebony electric guitar.

The Michael Kelly Custom Collection is a special grouping of limited-edition, short-run products with special woods, inlays, and hard-to-create specialty colors. An ideal addition to the series, the Patriot Striped Ebony features a distinctive striped ebony top and mahogany body with five-ply white-black binding, as well as a mahogany set neck with single-ply white binding and a double-adjustable truss rod. The rosewood fretboard has 22 medium jumbo frets with pearl bone inlays, a 24.75’’ scale length, 12’’ radius, and 1-11/16’’ synthetic graphite nut.

Michael Kelly Guitars has carefully selected all the specs and features on the Patriot Striped Ebony. But its the Great 8 boutique wiring mod that really helps set the guitar apart from the rest. The wiring mod is a double push/pull coil-tap that allows for a two-volume, two-push/pull tone configuration. When combined with the three-way switch and MK-PAF-Plus pickups, the Patriot Striped Ebony is one of those guitars that is capable of getting players through almost any gig. The string-thru body and tune-o-matic style bridge with additional chrome hardware finishes add to the guitar’s rich and unique look.

Production of the Patriot Striped Ebony is limited, with slight variations to each guitar.
