Risks and challenges

We bring eighteen years of guitar development and production to this project. We have a strong supply chain and have been working diligently to be prepared to develop these guitars for our Kickstarter supporters within the defined project schedule. We have completed multiple generations of prototypes and already completed our pilot production run. These steps have progressed this project beyond the high-risk development aspects of a project like this. Of course, there can be unforeseen obstacles in production and logistics, but we have taken multiple steps to mitigate that risk. All of us at Michael Kelly are committed to delivering great guitars. We will keep our backers updated throughout the entire project and we will be available via Kickstarter direct message or at info@MichaelKellyGuitars.com if you have any questions.
