The Michael Kelly Hourglass Tribal Sun electric guitar combines advanced guitar design and classic solidbody construction to create a timeless work of art. The solid-brass, sun-shaped SonicArt bridge creates a huge sonic impact by increasing bridge mass and bridge-to-body contact for sustain, resonance, and attack. The string-thru, chrome-plated design adds solar-powered flash to any stage show and perfectly complements the quilted maple top. The Tribal Sun also has a set mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, mahogany body, maple binding, dual PAF-Plus humbuckers with coil splitting, Grover tuners, 24-3/4" scale, and 22 medium-jumbo frets.

- Was this a gift?:
I would have to say I have been very pleased with this guitar. It was my 2d guitar, but my 1st electric and have had it for about a year and half now. Positives - Coil tapping really lets you change the sound of the thing. It was almost set the way I liked right out of the box. The Sonic Art bridge will really sustain. I put some EB Hybrids on it and just stated ripping with my buds. The fretboard is pretty fast for a nonsanded neck. The overall build quality was well above average for what I paid for it (which was considerably cheaper when Musicians Friend had a close out 2 X-mas's ago). Negatives - Not many. Litle things that bug me are..... The PAF's are a little bassy when you detune, but I have since bought another guitar (Dean Vendetta 4) for that so no problem now. Finish is hard to keep clean and you can barely see the Quilting. Other than that the rig kicks butt.See ya'
buy this guitar you wont regret it, tone, looks,screamer, has it all! I was looking at an epi and so glad i bought this axe!!!!!!
All I can say is this guitar is worth a lot more than it costs. The wood is solid mahogany, not laminated like somewhere else wrote. I opened the cover and looked at the hole drilled for the output, and it is solid wood. So that's one misconception cleared up. The finish is really top notch. It's prettier than the pictures here. The Grover tuners are very nice. I love them. Stays in tune! The electronics are also very nice. The body cavity appears to be painted with some kind of shielding paint. I haven't checked the pickup cavities, but I'm glad to say the pickups are very quiet. So maybe they're shielded as well. I plugged mine into an old crappy Squier 15 amp. This is the only guitar I ever plugged into this thing and didn't get the slightest hum. Maybe I'm lucky. The volume and tone controls work great with no crackle or static when adjusting. Pickups are very nice, with great sound. The electronics are quiet and solid. The chrome is thick and very pretty. Mine came with a set of GHS strings. I think this may be the bargain of the year. The electronics would cost more than you will pay for this whole guitar. Check the component prices. Very high quality in a Korean made instrument. Since this is discontinued, better act fast. I'm happy I got mine.
