Last July I bought a Soloway Swan - amazing guitar that really doesn't see near enough gig duty. I love the way it plays and sounds, but for some gigs there are tones I need that the 2 P90 guitar just doesn't do as well as others I have. Plus, the Swan I have is so beautiful (IMO) that I only take it to gigs where there is virtually no chance of any kind of accident. Lately, the guitar seeing the most gig duty is my Tele (Danny Gatton sig). Early last week Jim asked me if I'd like to try one of his latest creations - a demo "T-Swan". Well YEAH! The guitar arrived Friday and I was immediately impressed and made the decision to take it to a gig the next night. Ended up running the T through a JRT 9/15 and Dr Z 4X10, with a Gaspedal Dumbbell handling additional gain duties. What a fantastic guitar! It FEELS like a Swan, has that piano-like ring of a Swan, but sounds like a Tele! But like a Tele with something more, and that's hard to put into words - it's more full sounding, more balls maybe, great clarity and chime, bigger lows - all that for sure, but those words don't really do it justice. My bandmates and several folks in the crowd made it a point to tell me (multiple times) how good the guitar sounded. Two of my bandmates kept saying "You're going to buy it aren't you?" Well, no - this bird is a demo and is on a mission. Will I order one? Yep - it's next on the list. So Jim, congrats on another fine creation, and thanks for the opportunity to try it out first hand. To the next lucky recipient, I'll get it mailed out on Tuesday so you should have it by the weekend. But I'll warn you - you will likely find yourself wanting one of your own!
