Koll Duo Glide Gold Leaf and Copper


"At Koll, we see guitar making as an ongoing conversation between builders and players, and we use that feedback to continue to improve our designs and approach. Our clients include David Torn, Elliot Sharp, Bill Frisell, Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Henry Kaiser, Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Peter Holmstrom (Dandy Warhols), Hershel Yatovitz (Chris Isaak), Kenny Greenberg (Kenny Chesney), and many more." - Saul Koll

We proudly welcome Koll Guitar Company to The Music Emporium and what better way than with this incredible Duo Glide in Gold Leaf and Copper finish!! It's rare to encounter such an original, and beautifully executed, guitar design. Let's ignore the finish for just a moment and focus on the guitar itself. Build quality? Top notch. There's an organic, made-by-hand feel to this Saul Koll creation. The fretwork is excellent as is the rounded, fat C neck carve. The guitar feels great to play, due in part to the "barely there" finish on the neck and body. It has a very slinky feel which is accentuated by the Schaller wraparound bridge. It's a loud, resonant guitar played acoustically. Plugged in, it's almost as if you married a Gretsch and a Les Paul Jr. There's tons of top end sparkle and clarity thanks to the TV Jones pickups, but there's also plenty of LP Jr.-esq power and growl on top when you want it. The finish speaks for itself - truly a work of art. Easily one of the coolest guitars we've ever had in the shop (note the recycled industrial fluorescent light cover pickguard and truss rod cover!). Priced with a Koll Deluxe G&G hardshell case.
