What a great guitar! I purchased the black Duo Glide that Saul had in the emporium and I am very happy! I was planning to purchase a Gretsch Elliot Easton because I wanted the filtrons/fixed bridge combo. I was planning to gut the PUs in the EE and put tv jones in but then came this bad boy. I am so glad that I didn't buy the gretsch! the Koll is flawless. The guitar looks stunning and is unlike all of the other cookie cutter guitars I have owned. The neck feels like an old friend and the action is really smooth. So smooth that I need to pay attention to my finger pressure when bending because I am hardly having to grip the fretboard to make it sing. Not a dead spot on the neck. the finish is incredible. This is the only guitar I have owned where my wife and teenage daughters both think that it is cool. Sounds - huge piano like with a good amount of extra bite. I find that I am using MUCH less overdrive to get a lead tone that I like. The guitar is exactly what I needed. I have a new Suhr coming some time this month to compliment my Suhr tele and my Tyler Landau Classic. I am looking forward to that guitar but I can honestly say that I would rather have another Koll. Great stuff Saul!
