Gorgeous quilt maple body with elaborate neck inlay and Fishman electronics.

The Dragonfly Fretless is beautiful in appearance, smooth in performance and has great tone. Only with the Dragonfly Fretless do you get real quilt maple on the top, back and sides. The brighter and clearer tone that this provides is one of the reasons so many people have selected the Dragonfly Fretless. Of course you also get an amazing looking Dragonfly accented vine inlay that adorns the fingerboard. It is made from real abalone and pearl for the ultimate in instrument extravagance.

Other upgrades on the Dragonfly Fretless includes hand scalloped bracing, a double adjustable truss rod and dual graphite reinforcement rods for added neck stability and longevity. Like with all of Michael Kelly basses you get improved feel with a 34" scale for the perfect string response. The Dragonfly Fretless also has Michael Kelly's popular Top Dot markers. These are small stealth-like dots that show where each fret would normally be. They are hidden for a clean look, but a great resource when you need them.

Comments about Michael Kelly Dragonfly 4 Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass:

I've owned a few of these. The previous models were built in Korea and had a better build quality and inlay work. These are built in China. I had to send three of these back for various major issues. The inlays on the current models are cheap looking and poorly done. If it was not for the great price I got this would have been returned.
