Michael Kelly Studio QCE-12 Custom Reviews
I originally was looking for a solid body to replace the laminate body on my Squire Affinity Strat. I found this site www.mailboxmusic.com and noticed that they are local for me. I called them and, at their prices, decided to build myself a custom strat copy and keep my Squier as a beater. While there I noticed 2 of the most beautiful 12 strings I have ever seen. They were so pretty that I was certain that they were out of my price range, but I thought "what the hell... it doesn't hurt to play them". The dreadnought just didn't do anything for me as I already own another 12 string dreadnought and 3 other 6 string dreadnoughts. I picked up this one! Strummed it... asked how much and proceeded to pick my jaw up off the floor when I was told the price! Only $225.00... so I asked about a case... A custom fitted hard case was only $75.00 extra. Okay... (comedy relief time) my palms were sweating about this time, thinking about how could I explain 2 new guitars to the wife without her bitching about some other crap she could have spent my money on, but how could I pass up a bargain like this?
I've been playing for 31 years now and know a great deal about guitars, but I am still learning new tricks every day. I can't begin to count the number of guitars that I've bought and sold over the years, but I currently have 12 in my stable. This one is my favorite! Its a strikingly beautiful guitar and everyone who sees it and hears it just flip out. I have been offered $1,200.00 for it already, but I don't think that person was serious.Bill C. rated this unit on 2003-03-06.
