Gorgeous quilt maple body with elaborate neck inlay and Fishman electronics.
The Dragonfly Fretless is beautiful in appearance, smooth in performance and has great tone. Only with the Dragonfly Fretless do you get real quilt maple on the top, back and sides. The brighter and clearer tone that this provides is one of the reasons so many people have selected the Dragonfly Fretless. Of course you also get an amazing looking Dragonfly accented vine inlay that adorns the fingerboard. It is made from real abalone and pearl for the ultimate in instrument extravagance.
Other upgrades on the Dragonfly Fretless includes hand scalloped bracing, a double adjustable truss rod and dual graphite reinforcement rods for added neck stability and longevity. Like with all of Michael Kelly basses you get improved feel with a 34" scale for the perfect string response. The Dragonfly Fretless also has Michael Kelly's popular Top Dot markers. These are small stealth-like dots that show where each fret would normally be. They are hidden for a clean look, but a great resource when you need them.

Comments about Michael Kelly Dragonfly 4 Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass:
First of all, the picture of this bass here on Music123 is not entirely accurate. The 2016 models of this bass have no string pegs at the bridge. Also there are no fret or finger markers on the fret board, just the one side facing up. This is a very nice bass. Great gloss finish. Very pretty fret board inlays. Three woods used in construction. Quilted maple, mahogany and rosewood. This instrument is well bound. The neck is very comfortable and the guitar sounds awesome. It is an off shore product but that does not bother me. It has Fishman electronics and transducer for a bridge pickup. The quilted maple smoke burst coloring is most excellent. Grover tuner keys round out this bass. I like it. 5 stars for sure on this musical instrument.
