    It's almost embarrasing to keep extolling the virtues of Sauls guitars the way that I do, but this guitar is magnificent! Tones, wiring options(multitude of voices), design, comfort. After playing it for several days, I believe it has topped my Duo that I have had for several years. The build went very well, Saul produced the vision I had of what this guitar would be. (with quite a bit of help from Saul)

    That's what I love about Saul's guitars, you would gig with them, you would play them, not just polish and look at them. These are guitars for playing!
    I have owned other boutique guitars that were absolutely great, but I felt like they were museum pieces; look but don't touch. Those guitars were sold off........

    Whoa... now that's a nice guitar.
    Can you give us more of a lowdown on it?
    What kind of PUPs? What's the wiring scheme?
    What are the woods? Etc. Thanks and congrats!

    great guitar , I love the superiors and no you can go on to much about how great they are and Saul Too. I would love to try that out . I have four Kolls . If you ever in CT look me up you more than welcome to try mine. I probably am not to far from you . But you gotta bring that one for me to check out.

    Glad to see some other guy's getting they amazing new Kolls! Love this one too! Yeah, we need to know more about the specs!

    BTW, I'm in love with my Koll! It turned out better than how I had envisioned. (Thanks to Saul!)

    BTW, *krosser*... where's a thread with pics of your new one?

    It's probably just me, but it looks like the trem is back-routed for pull-up? If so, very cool! If not, hell, it's still a great-looking guitar :D
