News: Michael Kelly Guitars Announces Crowd-sourced Product Development For New 7 and 8 String Guitars



Michael Kelly Guitars Announces Crowd-sourced Product Development For New 7 and 8 String Guitars

The development of new products is typically done in the strictest secrecy within guitar companies. Breaking with the old guitar industry standard of springing new products on players at the time of launch, Michael Kelly Guitars is crowd-sourcing the development of a new collection of extended-range guitars featuring seven- and eight-string models. Confident in allowing players to define the new product and guide the development, the guitar maker is throwing the curtain wide open.

Starting Aug. 22, Michael Kelly Guitars will begin sharing design ideas with the public for their next generation of seven- and eight-string guitars. At least once a week, they will post different insights and samples on the special Player’s Voice section of the MK website as well as on their social media accounts, asking for community insights and opinions. This new and engaging content will further open the dialogue between the company and guitar players.

“We are inviting players to join a community that will guide the development of several new Michael Kelly products,” explains company founder Tracy Hoeft. He continues, “This group will nurture these products from the initial basic product concept to a completed collection of products.”

Through videos, photos, and shared data, players will be able to differentiate how certain elements of the instruments will look and sound compared to others. This conversation will continue through November. The resulting products will be introduced at the 2017 National Association of Music Merchants Show in Anaheim, Calif., Jan. 19-22.

Considering that so many of their customers share the passion for excellence, this team effort has unlimited potential. To access the special site and join this community visit MKPlayersVoice.com.

News: Dean Zelinsky Guitars Announces New Engraved Paisley Dellatera Guitar With Antiqued Metalized Finish



Dean Zelinsky Guitars Announces New Engraved Paisley Dellatera Guitar With Antiqued Metalized Finish

Chicago, IL August 23, 2016 – World-renowned guitar designer, Dean Zelinsky, announces the release of his Engraved Paisley Dellatera in an Antiqued Nickel finish. Utilizing an exclusive metalizing process, Zelinsky achieves a realistic engraved metal look on a traditional alder wood body. Guitars are only available factory direct through Zelinsky’s ecommerce site,www.deanzelinsky.com.

Marrying the aesthetics of metal with the feel and tonal properties of wood was the maker’s inspiration. “I have been working on perfecting this look for several months,” stated Zelinsky. “Engraved metal guitars currently on the market have a sexy appeal but are extremely expensive. Additionally, they have other less desirable qualities associated with the metal bodies. We have 100% achieved that look ‘in wood’ without the lofty price tag. In a test at a local music store, players looking at my Dellatera side-by-side a metal body guitar were not able to tell the difference.”

The Engraved Paisley Dellatera comes standard with Zelinsky’s patented Z-Glide™ Reduced Friction Neck. Z-Glide™ utilizes a laser-textured design to eliminate that sticky/tacky feel by removing 70% of the neck surface. Z-Glide™ puts a little air between players and their guitar letting hands glide up and down the neck.

Players can custom configure their guitar with the choice of rosewood or maple fingerboards, various hardware packages, pickguards, and pickup options including Zelinsky’s revolutionary SideKick™ Pickup. SideKicks are the first pickups that enable a player to have a true single-coil and vintage humbucker in the same space. Players can switch from single to humbucker and the volumes absolutely match.

Additional features include a rock hard Canadian maple neck, 9.5” – 12” compound radius fingerboard, 20:1 locking tuners, Zelinsky’s Hi-Tail single-coil bridge pickup and Broad-Tone neck single-coil, master volume and tone control with 3-way switch, graphite nut and string retainer. Players can customize and order their Engraved Paisley Dellatera directly from Zelinsky’s website,www.deanzelinsky.com, starting at $1299.
