Even though I already own a fine Swan, Jim Soloway was kind enough to send me one of his new Tele-Style Swans. I can't say enough good things about this machine. I expected it to have the basic Swan tone with maybe a little bit more bite. I never expected it to perform as a Tele as well as a Suhr or Custom Shop Nocaster, but it does, and with the low end of a hollowbody. I'll write a more in-depth review later, but for now, here's a clip: http://www.inrerocknroll.com/tunes/TennStud.mp3 I spent last weekend in Nashville; that was my inspiration.
