    I find the Koll guitars to be very very attractive. I'm assuming that they play and sound equally as well. Great looking guitars guy, post more!

    I sold the one on the left on TGP just before the meltdown.
    Left - tornado 3x harmonic design p90s
    Right - duo glide 2x tv jones filtertrons. A friend of mine says this one is the best guitar he has ever heard.

    I like the look of the chrome knobs - keeps the Art Deco look that Saul was going for. A real beauty.

    Cheers,

    I may have said this before, and I usually post whenever there's a new Koll guitar to ogle at, but I sincerely believe that I could pick up a few different Kolls and never want for another guitar again.

    Just absolutely fantastic designs. Saul's guitars are, at least to me, the perfect blend of vintage vibe and modern functionality.

    Keep 'em coming . . . please!

    I'm fixing to get one of Saul's beautiful children soon as well. My KG - Total Rock Guitar is rounding the corner and heading for home. This one's going to be an unruly, motherless bastard though.

    This thread will NOT whittle away onto the second page, to be forgotten about.

    Keep 'em coming!

    This thread is torture, but in a good way!

    I've long admired Showman's Chrysler Imperial green Superior, as well as the mint green.

    Ducmike, what color blue is your Superior?

    I've said it before and now I'll repeat myself: Saul Koll has the best design sense of any luthier out there. No offense to anyone else's faves, of course. JMHO.

    It's the same Chrysler green of Showman's. I had to do it after I saw his on Saul's website.
