New Arrivals from Swope Guitars! - What ARE those Pickups?

Two wonderful new instruments arrived this week from Chris Swope, a Geronimo and a GTO!

Let's start with the Geronimo, Chris' first original design and a real powerhouse for Strat/offset lovers featuring a pair of Swope humbuckers and a vintage style vibrato system. 

Guitar

The extremely comfortable neck is made from beautiful Rock Maple with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The offset Alder body is contoured for maximum comfort. 

Guitar

The finish colour is based on the old Gibson "Pelham Blue" which during its lifetime often turns a beautiful shade of deep metallic green. During that transition there is a half-way point where the finish looks like a deeper, more vivid version of Fender's wonderful "Lake Placid Blue".

This is the first example of Chris's GTO model to arrive at TNAG HQ. It's not, however, the first to come the the UK, that instrument is currently with Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones. There's a man with great taste in guitars! 

Guitar

The GTO is a contoured take on the Swope MG model with two of Chris's original single coil pickups (and a nifty series parallel switch hidden in the tone control)

Guitar

This is an exceptionally light-weight and resonant guitar with a huge amount of great tones on tap!
