Michael Kelly 1953 Black Vapor

Michael Kelly 1953 Black Vapor

Electric guitar with T-style body shape from 1953 series that features just the right amount of vintage magic, which makes it the choice for those that are seeking a more traditional instrument. Its all-alder body is capped with flame maple and the pickup configuration appears vintage traditional, but features the MK Quad electronics mod. As the name implies it offers 4 great sonic options instead of the expected 3 options. The guitar has a 4 way switch and in that fourth position it provides both pickups in series – it is like having a nice fat humbucker as those two pickups work together. The guitar also has some nice and hot single-coil Rockfields TexPlus pickup designed especially for this instrument, Master Volume and Master Tone controls. Bolt-on, modern “C”-shaped maple neck is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays. Scale length is 647.7 mm, nut width is 43 mm and fingerboard radius is 10.5”. Other features include an alder binding, a 1950 headstock, dual action truss rod, a bone nut fret, chrome hardware including die-cast tuners and a T-style bridge, and D’Addario EXL110 strings (gauges: .010-.046). Black Vapor colour design.

Overall impression


Sajnos ez a gitár többet mutat kívülről, mint amit valójában tud. Ugyan mutatós, de minőségileg sajnos vannak hibái. A bundok szélei nincsenek rendesen becsiszolva, vágnak. A hangszedők mikrofóniásak, már kis hangerőn, tiszta hangszínen is felveszik a test zaját.Ehhez tartozik még, hogy játék közben, ha a koptatólaphoz érek erős sercegő hang keletkezik. Sajnos ezek a hibák nagyon zavaróak. Szép és igényesnek tűnő hangszer, de a legolcsóbb kategória hibáival. Csak azért tartom meg mert akcióban vettem.
