Those are great, you're a very lucky man! Tell us about the tones and of course, more pics!
Those look sweet!
Congrats, oh and a tone report please.
Man those look nice. I realy like Sauls T-style headstock. Details, Please!
The work on his Headstock is a great example of why I like Sauls work so much. The man is a true artist, he can do Classic but he's original at the same time, he's got an eye! But the interesting thing is that he knows balance, he reins himself in, he knows when to stop, and doesn't over do things.......
You nailed it. Beautiful and balanced. True art work, both visual and audible. My first Koll isn't finished, and I'm already dreaming up the 2nd.
I'm working on my third plus I bought my Son one! Every time I see one his guitars posted, I want another.....sick!
I know I want one...I just can't nail down the features I want. I want it ALL!
I really like the P90 guitar!
Among other things, the preservation of trad. T. control spacing without the plate on the mahogany one is very slick, and I think the first time I've ever seen that.
Looking very sweet indeed
I like the look of that T on the right quite a bit
The control spacing was something I needed...so the feel is consistent with what I'm used to in Teles
Thanks for all the compliments, I'm really excited about these instruments. As you might guess, between the two of them they cover so much tonal ground it's almost ridiculous. The pickups are:
Swamp ash - Fralin Blues Special Strat & Tele, Fralin Unbucker
Mahogany - Fralin P-90's
I'm not 100% sure about the Fralin p-90's. I went with all Fralins because I typically feel right at home with their responsiveness, and the swamp ash one is pretty dead on exactly what I want. I'm going to experiment with height adjustments on the P-90's first. They sound good, especially the neck pickup. Anyway - we'll see. I just got them yesterday and immediately took them out to a gig. Little more adjusting here & there to do, but man, I'm thrilled.
And I have to say, Saul is the best to deal with.
I'm going to be moving to his neck of the woods in a month or so and those pics are making my wallet twitchy.
They look amazing and - I bet - play even better.
That is a great looking pair of guitars. I'm not sure I can decide which I'd like better. The ash one looks to be incredibly versatile, but I've always been drawn to two-pickup guitars. I'm also a big fan of P90s in mahogany, but sometimes you need the clarity of ash. I can see why you ordered that pair.
Both look killer. I like the teardrop/heart pickguard variation on the 2 P90 guitar.
Yeah right, it was because I couldn't decide between the two! Again, it's just unbelievable how much ground these two cover...
