Michael Kelly Guitars Introduces the Forte Port Jr. Ziricote

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.
