"I didn't want to make Telecasters or Stratocasters or Les Paul copies, I wanted to do my own thing. Because these are original shapes, I had the flexibility to do anything I wanted." -Saul Koll

Thrilled to see Koll Guitar Co. back in the spotlight at this year's NAMM show. Saul always showcases a bevy of drool-worthy guitars and we're lucky to have acquired 8 of them. Up first? A timeless, classically beautiful Super Glide Almighty - Koll's top of the line guitar.

Koll's Super Glide Almighty model combines the authoritative, stout feel and tone of a great Les Paul with the undeniably cool/beautiful looks of a vintage Gretsch. 1950's rockabilly cool meets 1970s grit and volume. No doubt Gretsch devotees will immediately notice the old-school Gretsch vibes via the Bigsby, thumbnail fingerboard inlays, open-back tuners...As with many of Saul's guitars, he manages to masterfully blend both elegant and refined looks with a more primitive, crank-the-closest-Marshall rock n roll soul. This is just a stunningly gorgeous guitar, no two ways about it. 

We love the slightly chunky, 10-14" radius, "medium C" neck carve. This is where the SGA veers more towards Gretsch than Gibson - it's a touch flatter feeling than your average Les Paul. It should be noted that the Bigsby works perfectly - cue up your Neil Young tones and have at it, it'll take a pounding and stay in tune. 

This is a loud, resonant, and alive instrument when played acoustically...plugged in, the Arcane Triple Clone humbuckers this SGA is equipped with really shine. Authoritative, bold, mid-range drenched tones work really well into both clean and overdriven amps. You can really take this guitar into whatever direction you desire - Chet to Angus, it'll cover a ton of ground. 

You really owe it to yourself to check out one of Saul's guitars. We have no doubt that you'll quickly see why he is so revered in the boutique guitar world. A true artist and master craftsman! Priced with a custom Koll Deluxe G&G case.
