    My Big Board Swan is complete and Jim might as well quit now because I can't imagine him doing any better than this.

    The pictures were taken by Jim in natural light so no flash throwing off the colors on these. Jim is also working on a short audio clip for his sight. The specs and these same pictures are at:

    Simply amazing. I can't wait to hear how she sounds. Thanks Jim.

    That thing is gorgeous, and interesting choices on neck woods: mac ebony on mahogany? I'm sure it will sound soooo good.

    Absolutely beautiful! Stunning woodwork. Those P-92s really are made for Jim's guitars as well.

    Wow!!! Every swan I have seen lately is one of THE best looking guitars i have seen ever. Many different looks, but always great. This one is sort of the opposite to my latest blue one, the T27 MOTO monster .
    And the REALLY scary part is that they sound even better than they look :crazy.
    My next (OK I am crazy :messedup) will either be a maple topped like this one or a S27 with a look to accompany the MOTO Monster..

    Very classy!

    What does Jim call that finish? It looks very close to a honey burst but has it's own thing going on.

    These guitars are catching my attention more and more. That one in particular is really a standout.

    I call that "The-burst-that-was-in-the-photo-that-Paul-sent-us-that-we-completely-forgot-about-on-the-first-try-and-had-to-do-over-again". :jo
    And I kind of like it too. :)

    Another knock out! Wow!!!!

    If you haven't already sign up for a test drive with Jim.*









    * Warning- After my test drive I sold the majority of my standard scaled guitars and now have 3 Swan's.
