3D Grand Auditorium Acoustic by Michael Kelly
 3D Grand Auditorium Acoustic by Michael Kelly 
The 3D Grand Auditorium has three features that set this acoustic-electric apart from others. First of all, the solid spruce top is subjected to intense heat-scorched to accelerate the wood's natural aging. This is done to mature the wood so that it has the strength, density, and sonic characteristics of a 50-year old instrument.

Secondly there is a slight arch in the back to help direct and project the instrument's sound. And lastly, a there is a sound port located on the guitar's side.

The 3D is a grand auditorium cutaway with a slightly deeper design and arched back with scalloped, hand-finished bracing to enhance the internal sound wave movement and projection. Interesting to me is the side-positioned sound port that works like a personal monitor speaker by allowing players to hear themselves at all times on stage or in the studio.

The 3D comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone Active EQ/Pre-Amp System and the Michael Kelly Zero-End Pin bridge that makes it easy to change strings. The sides and back are made from Java ebony and the black ABS binding with triple-ply purfling goes great with the rosewood fingerboard fitted with 20, nickel frets.

The 3D is finished in natural gloss and sells for $745 MSRP. For more information, check: www.MichaelKellyGuitars.com.
