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 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

    I bought this for a side project I'm working on, and I can't put the thing down. Intonation up and down the neck is spot on. Needs to be amplified to keep up with the volume of a typical 6 string acoustic, that's where the Fishman pre-amp comes in. You can't go wrong with one of these.

      Comments about Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

      The photo that MF has is wrong for the bass that I received. The bass that I received has a "Breedlove" style of bridge, which was a nice surprise actually. Another nice surprise was that this bass came with an onboard tuner. I was not aware of that when I purchased it and it is 100% accurate to my Boss TU-3 as well. The bass sounds amazing whether through a Fender Rumble amp or acoustic. It is incredibly fun to play, stays in tune really well and I have a hard time putting it down actually. I am definitely glad I purchased it and would consider another Michael Kelly guitar in the future.

          Comments about Michael Kelly Dragonfly 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

          The bridge was mounted incorrectly (too close to the bottom side) making the strings too close to the side of the fret board. Poor construction and bad quality control from the manufacturer.

          Musicians Friend however quickly emailed a return label and promptly refunded my money. They are a pleasure to deal with.

          Love this guitar! Plays great and the Fishman Pre-Amp is awesome! I get a great sound with this.

          Please note - you may need to buy a longer strap for this guitar than you normally use. I had to, but I got lucky and found a great strap that compliments this beautiful acoustic bass!
