    So I emailed Saul about a guitar on ebay, and just mention how nice I thought the one he had at Destroy All Guitars was - well Saul proceeded to tell me I needed to add it to my collection, and I am so happy that he did. For those of you who didn't see it at DAG here's the link :http://www.destroyallguitars.com/salesarchive/5105-koll-charlie-christian-super-glide and here are my totally unworthy pics (I need to take some better ones in daylight):
    Thanks Saul! It actually plays and sounds even better than it looks.
    Also I threw in a couple of pics of the rest of my Kollection. I am not worthy.

    Why did Saul recommend you add it to your collection? Other than the fact that it is awesome!

    Hi Doug, I think I finally was able to wipe your fingerprints from it. ;)
    Matt, talk about hoarding - I know what you have.
    Thanks Gator, Jaya.
    Rob-
    What Saul said was this (and it was enough because I already coveted it):

    I'd love to see you owning the triple cc guitar! Having that guitar and the headless, wow! You'd have a great combination of what I do: one total unique guitar, (headless) and a glide, a standard I've been building for years, but this particular one is built like no other. (And I think you have a couple other pieces, like the Zebra top to round out your Kollection. I built the maple Super as a show guitar, to show off my skills and ideas. It's an awful lot of fun to play.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys - it is definitely a special guitar.
    Mojo - yep, 3 Driskills - I love Joe's guitars (he has made me matching quilted trem arm tips since this pic).

    That is very cool! It'd be hard to say no to something like that. Congrats on a great guitar and a super-kollection.
