From Koll Guitars:
'Since 1986, Saul Koll has been making unique, innovative guitars using only the finest materials with a total dedication to his craft. Koll guitars are handcrafted in our Portland, Oregon, workshop by master luthier Saul Koll and his team. The result is an embodiment of Saul's creativity designed to become an extension of yours, a guitar that sets itself apart from others the moment you pick it up.
At Koll, we see guitar making as an ongoing conversation between builders and players, and we use that feedback to continue to improve our designs and approach. Our customers span the most demanding and challenging of guitarists including David Torn, Elliot Sharp, Bill Frisell, Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Henry Kaiser, Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Mary Timony (Ex Hex), Eleanor Friedberger, Peter Holmstrom (Dandy Warhols), Hershel Yatovitz (Chris Isaak), Kenny Greenberg (Kenny Chesney) and many more.'
Here is the Koll Troubadour single TV Jones pickup model in the stunning Sonic Mary finish. A gorgeous looking guitar that has been constructed with absolute care and the highest attention to detail. As soon as you pick this guitar up it feels right - the medium 'C' profile neck feels very comfortable in the hand, the rosewood fretboard with it's compound radius is effortless to navigate and the simplicity of the single pickup model makes this guitar a no-nonsense machine.
The TV Jones pickup is clear, twangy, and vintage sounding offering crisp definition, balanced output and reduced noise. This Koll has a nice, bright tone with a retro vibe, capturing the classic Filtertron sound famously associated with Gretsch guitars.
This guitar is exactly what you would expect from a boutique, high-end guitar manufacturer - quality materials and construction, insane playability and sounds the absolute business. Certainly worth checking out!
