OVERVIEW

The third generation of an acoustic-electric with a rich history.

For the last 6 years the Dragonfly models from Michael Kelly have been the most in-demand acoustic basses on the market. The newest version (the third edition) has some important upgrades. Michael Kelly started with a dramatic upgrade in the active amplification system. Now you get the Fishman MKAB system, the first pre-amp optimized for acoustic bass. The Dragonfly also features real quilt maple wood on the body. The tone of the maple is brighter, more focused and has added projection. Other upgrades on the Dragonfly 3 are hand scalloped bracing, a double adjustable truss rod and dual graphite reinforcement rods for added neck stability and longevity. Like with all Michael Kelly basses you get improved feel with a 34" scale for the perfect string response. Of course you also get an amazing looking vine style, Dragonfly accented inlay that adorns the fingerboard. It is made from real abalone and pearl for the ultimate in instrument extravagance.

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

Bad build quality. Previous models were made in Korea and had better, not great build quality. It took three returns to finally get one without problems. If not for the great price and service from MF it would have been returned.

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

    It had some fret buzz when I got it, the action was set very low. A slight adjustment (3 turns to losen the truss rod) and it was perfect! This is a great bass. It sounds good unplugged and even better plugged in. Very happy

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

      I love how warm and rich the tone is. It sounds great (unplugged and plugged in)! Also, it's great for practicing, very playable, lots of fun + design is amaizing (Trans Black Cherry ). I got it for my tiny wife and it's a perfect fit because the bass is really lightweight.
