Michael Kelly Firefly 4 TBK

I made this baritone guitar out of a used transparent black Michael Kelly Firefly. During shipment to me it got a little banged up. There are a few very small dings and scratches that I cannot photograph and a thin sliver of the back  bass side lower bout binding came off. I have sanded and re-lacquered it to de-emphasize it and have tried to picture it in the last two pictures. It is not obvious but it is something I need to mention. Those things aside, this is one gorgeous, sweet sounding, and easy playing guitar. The action is nice and low and the sustain is great. The owner of the one Michael Kelly I have sold so far loves it. Sold - Thanks Pit!
