2019 Koll Duo Glide 12

4,895.00

Here’s a unique new guitar straight from Saul’s workbench. A 2019 Duo Glide 12-string, with a semi-hollow ash body and ash top. Saul’s been wanting to do an ash-over-ash combo like this for a while now, and it pays off here in tone and weight. Even with all the hardware on this instrument, it’s less than 7 1/2 pounds!

First off, the wood: this is a gorgeously figured piece of swamp ash, and we’ve gone with a natural matte nitro finish on the back and sides to bring out its beauty. (Note: the staggered position of the string-through grommets on the back is intentional, to correspond with the bridge positioning.) The tobacco burst nitro top is also a matte finish.

The first thing most players say when they play a Koll 12-string is, “This feels like a six-string!” Saul has made quite a few 12-strings over the years (most notably the Spectro Glide 12’s for Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse) and has spent a lot of time perfecting the neck feel on these. Saul’s crafted a laminated 5-piece birdseye maple neck with a comfortable medium C carve, grenadillo fretboard and pearloid thumb inlays. The three Curtis Novak silver foil pickups chime like angels but will get dirty if you want to push them. No need for an octave overdrive pedal here…

This is an instrument that will do something different for your playing and tone, and help take your creativity to new places. Ships in a custom G&G hardshell case.
