    I have a TV yellow Glide Jr on the way with two p90 lollars.
    I can't wait til it shows up!

    Why do you have a pickup switch with only a bridge pickup?

    Bridge is Wilkinson. The switch is wired as an on/off switch – down is on – for stutter effect.

    Stunning Guit, all bussiness!

    I like the color and the way it shows through the pickguard. I like the TV yellow but it seems like allot of guy's are doing it, glad to see something different!
    I have a Duo coming in 3 months, but I want to do a stripped down guitar in a 25" or 25.5" scale with 2 or three P90's. I may do a Superior.........

    Great looking guitar.

    How do you like the Lollar?

    I can't decide on what pups to use.
    I got time :)

    Few things suck more than discovering a builder like Koll while living on a college student budget. :p

    The Lollar P90 sounds great! When I ordered the guitar, Saul mentioned that Lollar offers a 'normal' and a 'hot' version of his P90. I selected the 'normal' option. The tone is very full range, with that characteristic P90 growl and compression when vol control is turned up. Rolling back the volume cleans up the tone nicely.

    The tone control works exceptionally well, provides a wide range of usable tones throughout much of the control range.

    I might eventually try other P90’s in this guitar, but right now I am very happy with the Lollar.

    The neck measures about 0.88” at the first fret, tapering to 0.97” at the 12th, and is a very comfortable C shape.

    I really like this guitar. Visually appealing, extremely comfortable to hold and play, and great tone.

    :AOK

    Dave, Thanks for bringing your new Koll by the shop the other day! Scott and I both thought it was a great guitar.

    The acoustic tone from that one is unreal... like old wood. And the craftsmanship is top notch.

    Very cool guitar Saul!
