These are gorgeous, soulful guitars that aren't afraid to crank and let loose when asked.

While the Koll Troubadour tips its hat to Leo Fender's designs with its bolt-neck construction, long-scale length, T-style bridge, and Alder body (1-Piece Portland), in our experience, Saul Koll is not one to simply remake what's already been done a million times. Speaking of which, did you catch where the color for this guitar came from? The Koll VW Bus!! Has to be, right?

For example, note the lack of fingerboard markers on the beautiful Grenadillo fingerboard and straight string pull Tornado headstock shape (another fantastic model from Koll). As with all great design, a lot is being communicated via details like this - ie, this is a far more modern guitar than your average Telecaster (in a great way would should note).

A Lollar Tele pickup in the bridge and Lollar Charlie Christian in the neck position ensure that this beauty will twang if you want it to, but that's not the whole story here. This is a Tele style guitar for players who want an easier playing guitar that's capable of delivering a broad range of tones if called upon. This pickup combo definitely expands the typical Tele tonal palette by fattening up the midrange and output.

The overall feel is what separates this guitar from a more traditional Tele. There's something very sleek, fast, and well....badass about it. It's hard to capture a guitar's feel in words, but we absolute love where Saul took this build. It has a Tele's simplicity but there's something quite a bit more sophisticated going on with it - visually, but also in the way it plays, responds, and sounds. It's a very dynamic, punchy guitar with great sustain.
