David Lamkins picked up his first guitar a long time ago. As best he can recall the year was 1967: the year of the Summer of Love. Four decades later David has conjured up an amalgam of folk, rock and jazz solo guitar music for the occasional intimate Portland audience.

Koll Custom DL

This is one of my favorite guitars, a one-of-kind Koll custom built to my specs. Look here for a gallery of photos.

This guitar was about 18 months in the making (commissioned Sept. 13, 2002, delivered March 3, 2004) and is one of a kind. Saul introduced some unique construction details and made a lot of custom tooling to produce this guitar.

Was it worth the wait? You bet it was! This guitar is absolutely gorgeous with its classic lines and beautifully-shaded burst. At about six pounds, it's easy on the shoulders. And it's acoustically very lively, which lets me get controlled feedback at reasonable volumes, which was the primary design goal for this guitar.
