    I don't think so, but it says that you can get Hottie PUPs in Koll guitars. Have to say that one of their models sure looks like it was ripped from Saul.

    I hope that this is some sort of collaboration or spin off. Maybe the man himself can educate us?

    I saw that and asked Saul, he's involved with them, hence the resemblance. I'll let him elaborate.

    My wife saw me looking at the site this morning and liked them.

    Then she saw the amps and went ape over them. She thinks they are really cool.

    Christmas gift?

    I am glad to hear that Saul is involved with them, because when I saw them I was p*ssed about how it looked like a complete rip off.

    Yes somehow I find it OK when a myriad of builders rip off Leo... go figure ;)

    what do they cost , I see a few builders are making less expensive models which is a good idea to get more of their stuff in more peoples hands .

    well I guess they are not less expensive , just superiors with another name , they look great , got a great review.
    i just dont know if I would want a guitar called a Hottie , sorry but not the best choice of names in my opinion seems kind of silly .
