    I´ve had this for a couple of weeks now, and I couldn´t be happier. Found it via a Swedish website for a very reasonable price.
    My plan was to install some T.V. Jones Filtertrons in it, but the previous owner installed some Sheptone humbuckers that sound incredible, so I´ve decided to leave it the way it are. The specs can be found on www.destroyallguitars.com
    Enjoy;)

    That is a great guitar, if i had had the cash or it was blue it would be mine. :)
    Let me know if you ever sell it. I played it once and it sounds even better than it looks...

    I was gonna ask the same thing ..
    How does the spruce handle the bite of a distorted solo and the warmth of the clean neck ?
    Does it sound much like a familiar guitar (mahog,maple) OR Is it really unique?

    AND ....??
    is it chambered or solid

    oh yeah////congratulations!!!!!!

    Again - here's the specs of this guitar, chambered korina with spruce top.
    http://www.destroyallguitars.com/ko...l-archive/810-koll-custom-superglide-almighty

    I have a similar guitar made by Chapin which is hollow alder with spruce top. Spruce adds "woodiness" to the tone but it is still able to sound focused and tight with overdrive.
    Here's a recent clip of my Spruce topped Chapin though a Custom By Cougar Mystic Blues Star (ODS style) amp.
    Spruce is very responsive to changes in how you pick. This is a one take clip and all changes are made by changing picking style, i don't touch any of the controls on the guitar. It's bridge pickup full out all way though the clip.

    Thanks for the interest..it´s chambered so it´s very open and warm sounding - great for jazz on the neck pup.
    I would describe as a cross between a LP and a 335 - it´s a really versatile instrument. To be honest - I haven´t got the chance to get try it with a full-blown distorted sound yet. I tried it on maxed-out 68´ Vox ac-30 which it handled quite well.


    They can´t all be blue:) Not planning to part with it anytime soon. Will let you know if I do..
