Jim Soloway has been making hand-crafted guitars that provide something a little different than your normal electric guitar, and this iteration of the Soloway Swan is no exception. Fitted with a longer 27-inch scale length, and a longer neck to fit the larger scale-length, hence the "Swan" moniker. This guitar is also very unique in using Oregon Myrtle for the top-wood, something you don't see too often, but also provides some really full-bodied and transparent tonal qualities specific to this kind of wood. With such a larger scale length, and a longer neck, it would be easy to say that playing this guitar would be more difficult to do when using complicated chords or intervals, but that is not the case at all. Even at the bottom of the neck, those tricky chords and spaced out intervals can still be easily reached with the Swan's thin neck profile, flat fingerboard radius and larger frets to accomodate the player with the added length in scale. Also, with the added length the Swan from Soloway Guitars operates great in lower tunings, but is actually intended to be played in standard tunings, to really achieve the presence, articulation and clarity that defines this beautiful guitar. Thanks to our very own Electric Guitar Expert Jared for helping us to show how great this Soloway can really sound.

What we think:

Have you seen Oregon Myrtle on a guitars top before? I find it to be absolutely beautiful and the tonal qualities are clear and well-rounded against the chambered swamp ash body.  A true work of art that also happens to be a fantastic playing guitar!

Listen to the sound clips we provide on this product page!

So many builders try to come up with a unique body shape that will appeal to those looking for something a little less traditional and a little more modern.  Jim Soloway hit the nail on the head with the Swan! Just different enough to be unique, but not too extreme. functional, beautiful, and a tone worthy of stage and studio.

Description:

The 27-inch scale length is probably the most important design element to the Soloway Swan guitars, and the elongated neck that results from longer scale length is the inspiration for the model name "The Swan".

The scale length (the distance from the nut to the bridge) is a critical characteristic of the design of any guitar. The shorter 24 ?-inch scale length that is typical of Gibson guitars make string easier to bend and contribute to the rich tone. The longer 25 ?-inch scale length of Fender guitars help provide the twang and snap that has made them so useful for country players and the bite that has made them a staple of R&B. When PRS first rose to prominence, one of the characteristics that set them apart was a then unique 25 inch-scale length that emphasized mid-range tones and provided a compromise between the traditional Gibson and Fender formulae.

The 27-inch scale length of the Swan produces a remarkable level of clarity, presence, and articulation that most guitarists have never experienced. When playing a Swan, the notes just seem to jump off the instrument. The Swan Long Neck guitars are not baritones. While they can be very effective in lowered tunings, they are designed to be played at standard pitch.

Even with the longer scale length, the Swan was designed to be a very player friendly guitar. A very thin neck profile, a flat fingerboard radius and extra large frets make the Swan extremely easy to play, so easy in fact that most people don?t even notice the extra length. Difficult chords and intervals are still easy to reach, even at the bottom of the neck.
