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.
