Michael Kelly Guitars Forte Port Acoustic

Acoustic guitar construction has followed a similar design path for a long time. Michael Kelly guitars seek to break the habit. With the offset soundhold port and monitor port, they sound unique and offer something a little different amongst a glut of similar designed guitars

Forte Port
The Forte Port features Michael Kelly's Port Technology. This fresh new approach to top bracing and soundhole placement results in a noticeable improvement in sonic performance. It is dynamic, responsive and has a big bold sound. The Forte Port features an aggressive cutaway giving you more fingerboard access and great balance.

The Forte Port is equipped with an active Fishman electronics system. The under saddle bridge pickup captures the full and natural sound of the Forte. You can control the volume and adjust the tone with two onboard controls, located in the soundhole. Discrete, but very easy to use and all without any holes cut into the side of the instrument.
