Step inside Premier Guitar’s magical, miraculous time machine and revisit the gear that stood head and shoulders above the rest as Premier Gear Award winners in 2018.

Koll Super Cub

Saul Koll’s latest creation is an upscale tribute to down-market American guitars of the 1960s, but unlike its ’60s inspirations, the Super Cub is an exceedingly high-performance instrument. Equipped with custom Curtis Novak silver-foil pickups, the guitar offers surprisingly versatile tones ranging from authoritative cleans to brash chunk. Light and ridiculously fun to play, the Super Cub will appeal to guitarists who like svelte instruments and appreciate fine hand-workmanship.
