From the workshop of Portland, OR's Saul Koll...our latest Duo Glide sporting the incredibly beautiful sounding - and looking - TK Smith pickups and a stunning birdseye maple top! Not sure it gets much cooler than this.
Koll guitars are meticulously constructed down to the finest detail. From the look, feel, and tones...down to the fretwork, setup, etc...it's all here. These guitars have soul. Call it mojo, vibe, whatever you like. All we know is we can't put it down.
It plays effortlessly and balances perfectly in your lap. The Bigsby will take a pounding and keep right on going - in tune. The medium C neck carve is very comfortable and feels fast. Pick it up and strum a chord - you're greeted with a loud "krang!!' as the entire guitar jumps to life and resonates in your hands. Plugged in? Man oh man. Not sure what TK Smith's secret recipe is, but these are outstanding pickups. Warm, fat, big, bold...beautiful foil pickup / Gretsch-esq top end. First impression is humbucker + foil + a dash of P90. Amazing, and quite versatile.
Koll guitars are all unique - that's one of the coolest aspects of Saul's work. Don't let this one slip through your fingers...
Priced with deluxe Koll hardshell case.
