    Ok, just a dumb question, when you buy a used Koll, do you leave the original truss rod cover on it with the owners name . Or do you change and put your name on it or something else . Lots of free time here , LOL . But I am curious.
    I leave the name on , Kinda cool to know how owned it first or last guy or gal before me.

    I struggled with that when I owned it, and it was my name. But, I just left it the way Saul sent it to me. I thought about changing it the one and only time I tweaked the truss rod, but I was to lazy to go dig it out. I put the Portland, OR cover in the case if you want to change it.

    I really like the looks of this one.
    Very retro looking!
    How does it play/sound?
    Is this a Koll?
    If so what model?

    It's on his web site under Custom Guitars. I exchanged emails with him about it (them - there is a green version as well), but he said he doesn't do them any more.

    KILLER strat though. I love it.
