Forte Port Jr. Ziricote

Michael Kelly Guitars has released the new Forte Port Jr. Ziricote, expanding its innovative Forte Port acoustic guitar lineup. Designed for guitarists seeking a portable acoustic/electric instrument, the Forte Port Jr. Ziricote has a street price of $449.99 and is available now via Michael Kelly's dealer network.

The Forte Port Jr. is a three-quarter size acoustic/electric guitar with a beautiful exotic ziricote top. The instrument boasts an impressive full sound and tone from a compact size that guitarists will look forward to taking and playing everywhere. With its offset soundhole, the instrument delivers a noticeable sonic improvement thanks to the uninterrupted soundboard between the neck and bridge.

The side port lets the player hear what the audience hears, acting as a personal monitor. The Forte Port Jr. can dial up a great direct sound from the Fishman Presys II preamp with bass and treble controls and a built-in tuner. Players get easy access to the highest frets with the Michael Kelly Forte cutaway body shape, while the Zero Pin Bridge makes string changes quick and effortless. A lightweight gig bag is included with the guitar. The Forte Port Jr. will quickly become a favorite for songwriting sessions, travel gigs and in the studio.
