Michael Kelly Guitars – 1954 Black Satin Wash

The 1954 might be called the black sheep of the 1950’s collection. It avoids tradition in favour of a bolder look and tone. You can’t help but notice the satin finish and exotic wood top. The powerful Rockfield® SWC humbucker can be coil-tapped to deliver single-coil tone. The fast and comfortable neck is enhanced with a compound radius on the premium Macassar Ebony fingerboard. So askew tradition with your own 1954.
