    Wow, Saul is a busy man. I have a Korina/maple Duoglide with humbuckers somewhere in what must be a long cue. By the looks of all the recent photos, it'll be worth the wait.

    Koll Jeff Fieldhouse Total Rock Guitar (JFTRG).

    Semi-Hollow (like a Gibson ES335) construction - Maple body with a mahonony center core and mahogony neck.

    25.5 inch scale.

    Probably TV Jones TVTron pickups (but my mind keeps wafflling on that). Definitely some type of pickup that fits in a bucker sized space.

    Rosewood fingerboard.

    Still unsure of the color, but I'm leaning toward it being black (basically looking like a Les Paul Custom, but not gold hardware).


    Gonna Rock.

    Saul continues on my archtop. It's done when it's done. It'll be a New Rose, similar, but not exact to the one in the pic above. I'll be sure to post pics and specs when it arrives. I don't think it'll be too long now.

    Damn, Ken, that's awesome! The specs on the teles sound great. Very versatile. The Duo Glide sounds really nice, too.

    I played a few of the Kolls at NAMM and really dug them. Fresh, yet classic designs, great sounding, and very easy to play. I'm going to try to order a Tornado later this year.

    After seeing all the awesome Kolls on the way, I can see why I'm still waiting on mine! ;)

    The Koll I have in progress I've dubbed the "Lefty MIDI Tornado," and of course I'll post more than just a tease when it arrives and I have a chance to get to know it personally...
