Michael Kelly Firefly No. 3

I made this baritone guitar out of a used Michael Kelly Firefly in good condition. There is one significant din on the upper bout on the bass side that I have pictured and a finish crack by the binding on the lower bout also pictured. There are a couple of small dings on the back and some very light buckle rash on the back as well that are not immediately noticeable. The finish right behind the nut is a little lifted but that is not immediately noticeable either. The action is nice and low and the sustain is great. These Michael Kelly guitars are some of the best sounding and best looking guitars I make.  I finished it with chrome hardware and a sound port. I am selling this guitar without a case on eBay for $499. This is a beautiful guitar and someone is going to love it. Sold - Thanks Patrick!
