Sounds great, and looks killer Jim! I love the binding, it fits perfectly with the top. The second mp3 is the neck pickup?
I play with Thomastik Infeld flatwounds on all of my own guitars. The only reason this one has round wounds is because we have it set up for the Philadelphia Guitar Show next week and one we did for a customer with TI Bensons. The only exception is the low A on both which is a round wound GHS 60.wemedge said:It's beautiful and sounds beautiful too on the clips.
I wonder how it would sound with flatwounds.
Any Soloway owners out there have tried flatwounds on their guitar?
Thanks for the kind words.wemedge said:Thanks for the clips, Jim.
I just picked up a Thomastik-Infeld jazz set myself. will try them out.
Do you use a round wound on the low A for gauge size or sound reasons?
Your tone and playing, as usual, is inspiring....
Jim doesn't create guitars, he creates art that you can play as a side-bonus.sniperfrommars1 said:What has always impressed me about your work is how clean the builds are. Ive seen alot of custom builders, and none of them seem to have the attention to detail your work has. They all have that same Swan feel to them, and yet seemed to be geared towards pure tone and playability. So many custom guitars are just fancy inlays and wood and your guitars look like they play themselves.

No hijack at all. That show is what we built this guitar for. I'll have my personal 7-string there as well in addition to a bunch of 6-strings. Here's a link to the show info.jim777 said:(not to hijack the thread but....)
I didn't know there was a guitar show in Philly next week! Tell me where and when and I'll stop by and say hi. Gotta love a guitar show!
Rich, are you going to this?
