Michael Kelly Dragonfly Electric Mandolin



Replaced with: MKLDFEW

This mandolin has proved hard to keep in stock. Very few are made and we usually have a waiting list for them. If it is not in stock you can place your order and get a spot in line. We will not charge you until your mandolin is ready to go.

This model with the Dragonfly inlay will only be offered for 24 months and then it is retired. The centerpiece of the Dragonfly models is the unique vine inlay design carefully inlaid into the fingerboard. The inlay made from real pearl and abalone gives this mandolin a truly custom look. The Flame has one of our most in demand mandolin features, a radiused fingerboard. The radiused board is comfortable to play and many players feel that it improves their performance. The back of this fine new model also features a figured maple. Flame maple is also used on the neck and sides.

The pickup is a genuine Fishman system with an active preamp.

The Pickup

Mandolins are being used in more different styles of music and venues. For years players have been seeking a way to add a pickup to their mandolin. While many options exist, most are cumbersome and sound thin. Michael Kelly teamed with Fishman Electronics, a company considered the leader in acoustic instrument amplification to develop a new and improved solution. This new system is fully integrated into the mandolin during production. No fragile external pieces, each mandolin is built for this application. The Fishman pickup is mounted inside of a special bridge. The system includes a side mounted active EQ. This allows users to easily adjust treble, bass and volume right on their instrument. The fully integrated MK design assures great amplified tone, durability and adjustability. Each mandolin also provides the great MK tone acoustically that Michael Kelly users are accustomed to.
