    Oh yeah. It looks very similar to my Tornado except for them modern connector things. I just love the shape of the Tornado.

    The Tornado is definitely on my watch list. Cool guitar.

    Cool thanks for the heads up. I hope my issue comes soon! I love when I get home to a guitar mag waiting on the coffee table...

    Oh yeah, waiting on my own Tornado too... Saul just told me after finishing up a small batch today and tomorrow, mine's on deck. Can't wait! (well, my other Koll makes the wait easier though)

    They are kind of addictive, aren't they? I've barely touched my other electrics since I got mine, but I'm still GASing for another. It's gonna have to wait a bit though - I guess it gives me plenty of time to decide the specs.

    Yes they are quite addictive. My Koll is the best playing, best sounding and just plain coolest guitar *I've ever seen or played*. It didn't take long for me to realize since I didn't play my other guitars... I just had to have another one. Within 6 months of getting mine, I already started dreaming up a new one and about a month later it was on order. I won't insist that Saul is the best guitar maker in the world, but I know he has to be among them. #1 for me anyway! :BEER

    My next one will be an effort to get P90 and strat/quack "inbetween" sounds out of one guitar.

    1 piece swamp ash body
    1 piece dark(greenish) Korina neck
    Dimarzio Virtual P90s, Area 67 in the middle
    Hipshot Trem w/Graphtech Saddles

    Here's a pick of the body below...

    Hey Aaron,

    I find your specs very interesting, because I have always planned on one day spec'ing a guitar with Fralin P90's and a Fralin SP42 or SP43 in the middle. You've got to give us a tone report when yours is complete. Killer looking swamp ash, by the way.

    Oh, I'll post a pic of it the day I get it and a "tone report" to follow. :AOK

    Glad you dig the wood and specs.
