Michael Kelly Hybrid 55 Tele-style Electric Guitar with Acoustic Tones
The Hybrid 55 has the same T-style single cutaway/bolt-on neck design of Michael Kelly’s 1950s Series guitars as well as the Rockfield Mini humbucker (neck) and full-size Rockfield SWC humbucker bridge pickup configuration of that series’ 1955 models. The body is a gorgeous slab of lightweight korina topped with a layer of flame maple with a glowing, deep amber-hued Tiger’s Eye Burst finish.
The neck is roasted maple, boasting a birdseye maple headstock fascia, with a rosewood fretboard featuring a compound 10 1/2- to 16-inch compound radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, dot inlays, modern C profile and 25 1/2-inch scale. In addition to the Rockfield humbuckers, standard electric electronics consist of master volume and master tone controls that also activate push-pull coil tap functions for their respective pickups, a three-way blade pickup selector switch mounted on a chrome T-style control plate.
A Fishman Powerbridge is the source of the Hybrid 55’s acoustic tones, and its controls include a master volume located below the bridge along with a three-position toggle switch for selecting electric, blend or acoustic settings located on the upper bass bout.

The active Powerbridge system by Fishman® provides amazing acoustic tone. This can be even further enhanced by utilising a Y-cable, allowing you to send the electric guitar tones to your electric amp and the acoustic tone to your acoustic amp or mixer!
