I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to check out my gear at the LA Amp Show. There were some really amazing player's coming through and putting stuff through the paces. It was really impressive seeing all the talent. That being said, I would like to give a shout out to Jim Soloway, whom as a builder (and human), I respect a lot and is doing amazing, unique and original work (refreshing in a world of fastercaster's and relics). Every build he does is super high quality, consistent and true to his artistic vision. His new axe, whatever it's called (look it up), 15" or so body, is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and EVERYONE SHOULD CHECK IT OUT. It's probably geared toward jazzers and fingerstylists, but in my opinion, smokes everything that is out there for that genre. I don't doubt that it could cross over into every other territory as well. Light years beyond Gibby and Fender. Beautiful, articulate, warm...everything. I know many of you might wonder why I might pump another company's gear, but simply, with guitars, you don't need to sleep with one the rest of your life... Seriously, there is more than enough space for all of us and Jim deserves all the success he's having and then some.
