In my opinion made in Japan but I'm not sure. This little guitar has 22 frets. Body and mahogany neck and table Rabl. The pickups are PAF in two if I michael kelly Mabuse, trs Chrom really pretty. cot while the bridge was the Tonepros Tun-O-Matic and cot mechanic you can see Grover oil bath that take good agreement (metaleux. ..). The settings are more than adequate with a volume and a tone for each microphone + the possibility of split them (by pulling on the volume ... I did not know the base!). Note specially to handle absolutely superb inlay with flaming (it's a little-boy kk). I put 10 because the finish is just a small copy of mass rgl problem with a small soldering iron in 5 minutes ... nothing very mchant!
The handle is quite nice it's like a guibson but a little less stiff can set amongst easy access to acute to solos but I'm pretty good rhythm guitar too so I use the aigus.L ' ergonomics seems to me acceptable, however a bit hard to play the guitar sitting a tendency to slide back but it's clean style guibson.
I play mostly pop-rock so clean and the saturation of the big rock style us (Nickelback, Daughtry ...) I played on a pedal marshall Mg100dfxZoom G7.1ut a vox AD30VT and a little to my apartment I ' have not yet seen all the possibilities of sound stupid but for distos is absolutely monstrous found a little grain but less guibson typ. For clean neck pickup is really sweet perfect for small or rhythm of the blues when it goes against by the bridge pickup gives a more cristalain perfect example of Regae. The crunch is not nglig gives her a very different depending on the micro and really very good I'm not a blues man but I find myself playing a little blues solo my spare time just to admire the her with my simulation voxAC30. There are metal that I find it a bit rough in the big dropD saturated even if it is acceptable
I use it for 2 years soon and I always regret not dbourss 700 for this guitar at the base I was too "flashy" but playing on it I quickly changed to review Really exellent points in all the finish is extrordinaire for the price (even my neighbor told me that pro luthier c'tait trs really well finished for the price). I recommend this guitar if you play rock with-us very big distortion of Burin, but it is suitable for all types of music except perhaps in death metal that comes out of your cellar.

I purchased a guitar Michael Kelly Patriot Phoenix Used but like new protective plastic on microphones, head set, etc ... I consulted several forums so well on Audiofanzine! as complementary to my avis.Je dreamed of a Gibson ES 137 Custom I tried a store beautiful guitar on all points, quality of frabrication, sonoritées, except the price kept me from buying it in 2150 euros, so I started looking for a guitar of quality and reasonably priced 600 euros, pluseurs people said good on guitars Kelly M, see other reviews for Audifanzine.Plusieurs day search on the net, I finally came across this guitar, the person was selling because he was left, I called and told me that the guitar new state at 300 euros I jumped on it ...
My surprise was great as I unpacked, quality beyond reproach frabrication to price level (new 600 to 700 euros) as well That a 2000 Gibson euros.Fabrication made in Korea as how they can make quality body and neck accajou solid chrome microphones Tyle Gibson (498) separate volume and tone for 2 microphones + plitz mode (single and double coil) really works, set neck 22 frets very comfortable to play one has the impression have always played on this guitar for details see website Michael Kelly guitars.
Its sliding handle a real treat, the highs are very accessible, the form has a good balance lespaul général.Pour sound it is not left his péchus microphones, the microphones handle gives more serious, but less typical Gibson style The bridge pickup is more acute Fender Telecaster style combinations are numerous + (plitz) have little to play all styles (30 DFX Marshall test)
If we did then there was a pedal on top, clear sound amplifier gives all the sounds of famous guitarists incredible (Pedal Zoom G1)
I have this guitar for 3 weeks we would say is that I always had, I played on Ibanez, Fender, Ovation and Gibson tried it really is for me one apprent faster with this guitar I play for 3 years . Really quality / price ratio unbeatable choice again without eSite, you can go there with closed eyes ...
