    Ah yeah, now I see it's gone. Dang. Can't remember where I hosted it, wish posting pics on TGP was more simple, especially after the PHOTOBUCKET disaster. If anyone needs it send me an email, saul@kollguitars.com

    It's been a while, but I might have used a KandK. Might have been one half of these: https://kksound.com/products/purebass.php

    I think there are many ways to do it and I think it's open for experimentation. I think it SHOULD be played with. Each one I've done has been different. Here's a schematic I made for my friend Dan Phelp's "Big Red". That circle object between "Pause" and "Mic" is the microphone. Here's a YouTube...

    Wow! Thanks for all of this. I'm so lucky. I love my gig and am so blessed that many others do too. I head out to the shop each morning and every day am excited and eager to be there, designing and building stuff. I do my best to listen and really hear what a player wants in their instrument...

    Frank Brothers Guitar Company - Custom Build for Me.

    Their old man was a prominent Canadian recording engineer. He worked with Bob Seger, and Alice Cooper amongst others. I'm sure that he had something to do with that record collection. Yes I'm familiar with him. Legendary. If I wasn't clear in my first post, I'll just say I have nothing but...

    Frank Brothers Guitar Company - Custom Build for Me.

    I love what these guys are doing. Cool designs and innovative construction methodology. I also love that they keep vintage vinyl beneath their ginormous jointer.

    Noise from Volume/Tone Pots - Grounding Issue?

    So sorry you are having problems. The wiring in the pic-though I can't see everything-seems to be correct. Pickups have four conductor wiring. The two coils are wired in series, so you see where they connect and connected to nothing further. Then a wire from each pickup goes to ground(back of...

    NGD: a fretless Koll Tornado for brother Jon

    Thanks Kingsley! Very fun build. The platform is very simple: a minimal number of quality wood pieces nicely fitted together, a thin finish, some great hardware (including my friends Jason Schroeder's fantastic bridge and Jason Lollar's imperial humbucker), and the rest if up to your bro-...

    Fret Ends on PBG Koll Jr Glides

    Oh yeah, you make total sense, I was just wasn't thinking. The answer is we have made them both ways. Each is done accurately on a cnc. The difference is if we are using an end mill or a saw blade. If we use the saw blade, the slots go all the way through and you can see the fret ends, if we use...

    Fret Ends on PBG Koll Jr Glides

    Hi Joe, I'm not sure exactly what you are describing, can you send a pic? I'd be happy to tell you what you have. Maybe you're are talking about "nibs". In general, I usually, and the PBG guitars included, have the frets extend over the binding rather than Gibson style binding fret "nibs"...

    Nice Dave! Simple elegant solution. I'd say your design is worthy of a patent.
