Koll Duo Glide Transparent Red


"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

Our next batch of Koll guitars are starting to arrive - always an exciting day at the shop! First up is this stunning Duo Glide sporting one of the nicest transparent red finishes we've ever seen. This guitar beautifully melds the heart and soul of a Les Paul Special with the elegance, and let's be honest, straight-up cool of an old Gretsch (think Duo Jet). The all mahogany construction, medium C neck carve, and dual Arcane / Koll designed P90s (KP90s) deliver the best of those different guitars - fat, punchy, bold LP Special-esq tones with hints of Filtertron sparkle and chime...tons of sustain and resonance...gorgeous. This guitar balances perfectly in your lap or on a strap and would be right at home in a variety of genres. The playability, build quality, and set up are flawless. You want this, trust us. Priced with a Koll Deluxe hardshell case.
