Hand-carved spruce top and maple body with Fishman System One electronics.
The Michael Kelly Legacy Dragonfly Acoustic-Electric Mandolin is a top-of-the-line Michael Kelly mandolin. The centerpiece of the Dragonfly model is the unique vine inlay design carefully inlaid into the fingerboard. The inlay made from real pearl and abalone gives this mandolin a truly custom look. The Flame is also equipped with one of their most in-demand features, a radiused fingerboard that is very comfortable to play. Many players feel that a radiused board improves their performance. The "Flame" in the Dragonfly Flame comes from its stunning solid flame maple back and sides. For improved tone, Michael Kelly has equipped this model with its propritary one-piece tailpiece that adds ring and resonance.

Comments about Michael Kelly Legacy Dragonfly Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:
I haven't gotten a setup done yet, but this mandolin has plenty of volume and a good tone. It does have a problem staying in tune right out of the box, but I'm sure this will be rectified after setup. The A-string is also hotter than the others when plugged in, but again, that is likely a setup issue.
The one thing I am disappointed in is that the finish is not like all the photos online (this site and others). It is handsome, but nothing like the online photos.
