Swan Contour - swamp ash body, maple neck, 27" scale of course, pau ferro fingerboard, sea snail markers. Chambered, no hole, and has rounded edges and an arm contour, like on a Strat; very comfortable. The pickups are a pair of TV Jones TV'Trons - standard humbucker size repros of Gretsch Filtertrons.
This is an exceptional guitar. Remarkably even sounding all over the neck and every position rings like a bell. Chords speak clear and full, even with distortion, and the TV'Trons are capable of some great chime and twang.

Jim Soloway used to be a regular here on HCEG but I haven't seen him in ages. His guitars are beautiful and as I recall he was a pretty decent jazz guitarist to boot. I'd love to have such a guitar but it would be wasted on me

Another one of those guitars whose specs aren't exactly what I look for, so I probably wouldn't buy, but I still think it's hot. Definitely like to try it. It's unique without being silly.

Is so so. Just a variation of BC Rich eagle guitar which i think looks better.

That is cool. Meh, but cool.
I would mix some red pigment into thinner, and do a first pass at a sunburst, all of the edges, with a natural burst in the middle.
Somebody has a pic of that.
