Forte Port 12 Randy Jackson signature is a new kind of instrument for a new kind of player, and for the traditional player who wants that extra edge.
The Forte Port 12 Randy Jackson of Zebra Signature builds on the design and innovative technology of Forte Port acoustic guitars. This visually striking guitar combines exotic ziricote wood with a natural gloss finish. The styling is further enhanced with mother-of-pearl inlays that adorn the ovangkol fingerboard, including the Forte Celtic knot and black diecast tuners.
The sonic performance is just as striking as its look. The offset sound hole creates a larger resonant area under the strings for improved depth, accuracy and tone. The Forte Port side-mounted soundhole produces superior tone and clarity and allows you to hear sound coming directly from the body of the instrument for easy monitoring.
Want to go electric? No problem. The Zebra Forte Port 12 features Fishman electronics to capture the full and natural sound of the guitar. The active electronics include volume, contour and phase controls along with a built in tuner.
Acoustic guitar design has not changed significantly since the pre-World War II era. For several years now, the Michael Kelly team has been working on a fresh new approach to acoustic guitars. This has culminated with the development of the new Port Technology. At the core of this innovation is an offset soundhole approach coupled with an all new bracing design. Traditional soundhole placement interrupts a potentially potent “soundboard” area located between the neck and the bridge. By relocating the soundhole, Michael Kelly was able to bring this area to life, providing a louder and more resonate overall top performance. This performance enhancement is especially evident on models with integrated electronics where the added resonance collaborates with the bridge mounted piezo for undeniably better results.
