Michael Kelly Guitars Introduces New Triple 50 Model

Built upon the company's 1950s line, the new guitar uses three single-coils and a Super Six wiring mod.

Anaheim, CA (January 16, 2020) -- Michael Kelly Guitars, the “boutique within reach” guitar brand, is set to release the new Triple 50 electric guitar at NAMM 2020. The Triple 50 takes the beloved classic two-single-coil pickup configuration and adds a third single coil pickup. While still retaining the true sounds of the Michael Kelly 1950s line, the Super Six wiring mod offers players a wider variety of tones accessible through the mini toggle switch, which activates the middle pickup. The Triple 50 (MAP $499.99) in Burl Black or Gloss Black finish are available for sale now via michaelkellyguitars.com and Michael Kelly’s growing authorized dealer network.

The fusion of vintage and modern goes further than the electronics. The traditional bridge brings a classic look, while the compound radius fingerboard offers comfortable, modern playability. The thoroughly modern look of the Black Burl finish features an Ebony fretboard while the classic Gloss Black finish is beautifully paired with an elegant Maple fretboard. Gig bag and hard case available.

The custom designed Rockfield® pickups are enhanced with the Super Six wiring mod, making it the most tonally diverse model in the 1950s series. At home, on stage, or on the road, it’s the ideal guitar for country, rock, gospel, and so much more.

1950s Series

Inspired by the vintage finds of the golden era of electric guitar making, the 1950s Series offers features and sonic capabilities of those memorable instruments but with modern day appointments and production techniques. All models feature an exotic wood top and contoured arm cut, master volume and master tone controls. We then enhance some models with boutique electronics mods and some of the best pickups on the market for amazing sonic ranges and versatility.

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
