    KRosser, simply stunning guitars! Saul seems to outdo himself with each successive instrument. Every time I see new pics of his work he has found a way to better his craft. I keep thinking that he has reached the pinnacle but he keeps pushing further. VERY impressive!!!

    Speaking of Koll Tele styles...I just got the call from Saul the other day saying that mine is headed to the finish booth. It's going to be much like Josh's with a Skyway instead of Hipshot, a flame top with binding, and thick rosewood boarded neck.

    ...excited to say the very least!

    My guitar will look like this one but with a matching fiesta red headstock. This is his "Fullerton" model with a bolt on neck. Mine will have a set neck with H/S/S pups.

    Hey Rick & Josh,

    Yeah, I'm excited to see how it turns out too. I've seen one progress pic and it looks phenomenal. Saul just keeps raising the bar. I'll be sure to keep you posted.

    Thanks for the inspiration on the guitar Josh! Imiitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? ;)

    Thanks for making an amazing bridge Rick! :AOK

    Well, a good couple weeks later these things are seeing some action, and let me tell you: wow. Can't wait to see how they 'open up' after they get a good 300 or so gigs in them...

    Let's keep this going...I wanna see some more pics!
