The vibe is Southern California; the unique sound of Fullerton from the mid-50's on. Think Woodies, surfing legend Dewey Weber, stripped-down beach cruisers and Panhead Harleys. The name evokes the storied west LA music club, the body shape is classic Glide, and the vision is Saul's take on quintessential California design. The Troubadour is available with one, two, or three pickups.
