    • If you’ve ever dreamed about getting screaming electric guitar and sweet acoustic sounds from the same instrument, it is now possible with the Hybrid Special from Michael Kelly. The Hybrid Special is the perfect stage and studio instrument because it can instantly switch from a full, natural acoustic guitar sound to a ripping electric guitar tone! Taking the concept even further, it can also blend these separate tones to create endless variations. Imagine playing a gig while your audience looks for the “other guitar player!” When using a Y cable, the Hybrid Special can send a signal from its acoustic pickup to one amplifier and its electric guitar signal to another amp to dial in each sound. You can also run directly into two channels of a mixing board for live or studio applications to tailor the different tones as desired. Or you can just keep it simple by running the Hybrid Special into any guitar amp using a standard guitar cable. Choose from three attractive finish options.
