Koll Super Glide Almighty


"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

This Koll Super Glide Almighty...beautiful and classy yet undeniably rock n' roll! Saul Koll has delivered yet another incredibly cool guitar and we couldn't be happier to have it in the shop. It's rare to encounter such an original, and beautifully executed, guitar design. Build quality? Top notch. There's an organic, made-by-hand feel to Saul's creations (read: vibe, feel, and excellent playability for days). This guitar feels great to play, due in part to the satin finish on the neck and body. Wondering about the tones, yes? Anything from Grestch chime to Strat-like tones are available via a flick of the switch (well, 2 switches) thanks to the ingenious wiring setup this beauty sports. If you haven't played a Charlie Christian style pickup before, think Filter'Tron-meets-P90. Single coil clarity and articulation but with a bit more fatness and character. These pickups work really well with jazzier cleans all the way through Townshend grind (it can rock harder than its appearance may lead on). Looking for a unique guitar from one of the top builders working today - one that has no equivalent in your current collection? This is the one. Priced with a Koll Deluxe G&G hardshell case. 

Interested? We may have another on the way.
