    I know there are many here that really dig Koll Guitars, so I thought I would post a pic of the Koll Super Glide Almighty Baritone Guitar, click on the pic & please have drool cup handy:

    [​IMG]


    Some of the specs on the guitar are:
    28.5” scale
    Mahogany body and neck
    maple top
    Gretsch silver sparkle drum covering top.
    Nitro lacquer
    Bigsby B-3
    TVJONES MAGNATRONS
    Ebony fingerboard with split humpblock inlays
    Waverly tuners

    Also, you can't see it too well in these pics but it has red back and sides with a very subtle semi-sparkle, very hip. And it has matching red side markers.

    The TV Jones Magnatrons are out of this world! Big clear tone with lots of snap and bite! Check TV's website for more info. on these fantastic PUs and keep in mind that they are all they are made out to be and more!

    Saul did one heck of a job, I couldn't be happier. The pic doesn't do justice to this guitar, it has to be seen, played and heard in person.

    indeed... my drool cup runneth over...

    Love the red sides. How hot are the magnatrons compared to stock TVJ filtertrons?

    Very nice! It been awhile since I owned a baritone, Kolls are tempting :)

    I checked out this beauty at Namm as well, a real Killer. Great work Saul. Loved the way he pulled off just the right amount of sparkle in the back, nice touch.

    About the only word I can get out is "WANT!"

    And maybe, "Can you record sound samples?" :)

    Saul told me about that when i asked about a bari about 6 months ago. That is probably the coolest guitar ever.
