This was a custom build by Koll and one of the few if only of a 2012 New Rose that features the tummy cut, splitable pickups,
and a kill switch on the pickguard. It is completely stock with a “Stetsbar Pro II” vibrato system and Mono case.
This guitar has been well loved and played with some fret wear. Many years of use ahead with the frets.
General wear with fading patina.
You can see and hear this actual guitar with a search on YouTube for: Johnny Boyd – “My Baby Comes ‘Round At 8” LIVE in Chicago or Johnny Boyd – “Someday Dreams Of You” LIVE in San Francisco
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.
The Stetsbar Tremolo system is a vibrato bridge system for the electric guitar. Eric Stets developed the device in the late ‘80s, and patented it in 1995. He originally designed the device to provide a stable vibrato system that could retrofit to “stop-tail” (fixed tailpiece) guitars such as the Gibson Les Paul with no permanent modifications to the instrument.
