2005 must have been a good year for Michael Keller, because this 2005 Jumbo with flamed Koa and Engelmann Spruce is a firecracker (or should we say mortar shell?) of a guitar! The bass is pronounced, but with a well-defined edge that keeps this Jumbo from sounding muddy, and the trebles are strong without being shrill, which allow this guitar to work well for both fingerstyle and flatpicking approaches, and performs best with a medium to aggressive attack to really set the Engelmann Spruce top singing.
With the added soundport on the upper bout, this Keller's huge voice is also directed straight to your ear to make this a great choice for loud venues or sessions--not to mention the pride you'll feel as you show off the well-executed Abalone inlay across the body and neck. For a player seeking a slim nut, this Jumbo offers that in combination with a low/medium C profile neck for comfortable fretting work, and the setup is glass-smooth. Michael Keller's one of the greats when it comes to Jumbos; do yourself a favor and try this big boy on for size.

"Giant sound and great overtones characterize this guitar. I'm impressed. " - Al Petteway
