Michael Kelly guitars release the new CC50DLX – better known as the Custom Collection 50 Deluxe. Designed & built in collaboration with Seymour Duncan the CC50DLX comes with Duncan’s Hot Rail pickups, a 4-way selector switch and push/pull coil splits on both controls which give you a 12-Tone Mod to open up the full sonic palette…

The Custom Collection 50 Deluxe combines cutting-edge electronics with the classic look of Michael Kelly’s 1950s Series making it a very sonically versatile guitar. The pickups and the mod were selected after an extended collaboration between the Michael Kelly team and the experts at Seymour Duncan®. At the center of this model is Duncan’s Hot Rail pickups. These are humbucking pickups in a single coil form-factor. That means that you can enjoy a fat, ready-to-rock tone with the ability to switch to a more traditional single-coil tone. The 50 Deluxe has the new Michael Kelly 12-Tone Mod. The Deluxe has a 4-way selector switch that delivers the typical neck or bridge or both settings of a 3-way, but also adds in a “series” option in the 4th position. Taking that further they have included two push-pull pots. One, when pulled up splits the neck pickups from humbucker to single coil; the other splits the bridge pickup. The combinations are vast giving you a dozen (yes, 12) different sonic settings.
