The Michael Kelly Patriot Enlightened features a unique weight relief technique making this Patriot 30% lighter than the typical Patriot Model. This awesome light weight patriot also features the Great 8 Mod, whch doubles the sonic spectrum of a two-humbucker instrument. You still have the full powered tone of each humbucker and the traditional settings to give you neck, bridge or both. With Great 8 Michael Kelly adds two push-pull switches to the volume and tone knobs, that when pulled up one coil of the humbucker is disengaged giving you a cleaner single coil tone. You can control each pickup separately, maximizing your options. This is one of the lightest, most veratile Patriot models ever made.
