    My Soloway Big Board is nearing completion so I thought I'd post some progress pictures. There is one difference between my Big Board Swan and the others already finished and that is the color. The color is the last picture is actually going to change but it does give a nice idea of how the quilt will "pop" when finished. Jim is going to do an amber burst for me. I'll post the updated new color finish picture when it is available.

    Here are the most recent pictures with the color redone for a burst finish. Should be done in about a week. The color is distorted a bit from the flash but I'll try to get some natural lighting pictures taken when it is finished.

    Actually I'm a bit nervous I might like it too much. I have a very nice collection of "standard" scale guitars that aren't going to get much use if I like it too much.

    Mine looked the same way with Jim's flash/camera/table combo. It looks much less red in person.

    Beautiful Swan!!!

    Let me tell tou that is a very real risk after 4 Soloways i still want more. BUT i still enjoy my other guitars but when it's time to gig or jam with someone I almost always take a Soloway.

    +1000000

    I've sold all my others but one 80's shreding axe (90's Ibanez 540s) and have the 2 Swans.

    I would love to have a Swan with a Limba body, maple top, limba neck, and macassar ebony board. Load it up with some hot pickups and lose the Ibanez too.

    3 Swans......that's the ticket!:jo
