Designed as a bass, not an over-sized guitar.

The Michael Kelly Firefly 4-string acoustic bass is an affordable bass that sounds great unplugged and has the electronics for easy amplification. A spruce top and deep laminated flamed maple body give it a bright and beautiful tone. It's a looker and the price is beautiful, too.

  • Rosewood fretboard

Fretless

By b0c

from ct

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

I own the fretless version of the Firefly. Ive had it for over two years, and practice on it every day unplugged. I've also played it out plugged in several times. I must say I like it both ways equally well. You don't get the feedback issues that I've encountered with other acoustics. I recommend this axe.

Buy this bass!!!

By GTRMAN-hB7J7

from Chicago, IL

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

I got this bass a couple of weeks ago at the Guitar Center in Chicago and I am really happy with it. It met all my needs: 1) Sound projection - louder than other shorter scale neck acoustic-electric basses I tried(e.g. Ibanez) 2) Playability - shorter-scale neck, smaller body, not too hard to fret the notes 3) Tone - tone is deep and rich. Salesperson had to adjust the truss rod to eliminate some of the fret buzz. Sounds great now. 4) Look - I got the sun-burst and it just looks great! Beautiful. 5) Construction - seems well-made with reinforcement inside and outside the body 6) Price - very reasonable considering I bought it on clearance. I would've paid full price for a new one.

Awesome

By bootlegg

from Guam

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

I have the sunburst, the pictures just do not do it justice. I also own a Michael Kelly Dragonfly in a five string. I must say you can't go wrong with a MK. Sounds awesome, plays great. I'm completely satisfied.

Good Choice

By TheBRINGA

from Boston, MA

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

I purchased the Michael Kelly Firefly, because I just began learning the bass and I wanted something I could just pick up and play without having to plug in. This was great, the right look, the right sound and the right price. I love it, and would recommend it to anyone. It is a quality product.

Michael Kelly Firefly AEB

By bosstone88

from Tulsa, OK

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

I've been playing in rock bands for a few years but recently joined a bluegrass/folk band with some friends so I needed something that I could play without an amp if need be. I just purchased this bass and was very satisfied with its quality and tone. Unplugged it has decent natural volume; and when plugged in the pickup has its own EQ. The transparent black looks way better in person than in the picture. Great bass.

Firefly Bass ---Fantastic

By bburke

from West Fargo, ND

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

This Bass for the price is fantastic. It has a sweet smooth sound as an acoustic and sounds punchy running thru a Para Acoustic DI in a house system. I love the sunburst finish. I am very impressed. Michael Kelly makes great stuff!

Different for once!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

I just received my firefly bass and am impressed! I am a missionary with my father and needed an acoustic bass for lack of electricity in some churchesThe only dissapointment to me was the laminated top, which still cranks out lots of acoustic volume. The finish was astounding for the price. (gloss natural) I was glad to find it a bass that was a bass not a guitar.

Review

By DSMexican06

from Abilene, TX

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

This bass is the first acoustic bass that I've owned and I have to say it's pretty good. I've been playing bass for about two and a half years now and I've been looking for a new guitar so I decided to go acoustic. I had heard how good Michael Kelly guitars were so I decided to give it a shot. I've been in love with it ever since I first plugged it up. The sound is great, the look is great, and the price is great. I really believe that any bassist looking to go acoustic on a budget should definantly consider the Michael Kelly Firefly.

Not What I Had Hoped For

By mssumthinelse

from Phoenix, AZ

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

This acoustic/electric bass was about as disappointing as all of the others I've tried so far. As with all of the other acoustic/electric basses I've played, amped it sounds great. Played acoustic, it sounds flat and hollow with very low natural volume. I'm giving up on this acoustic/electric stuff and am going to stick with only electric basses and guitars from now on.
