Swing Guitar Technology is a Korean brand.
Some passionate musicians wanted to put their know-how to other musicians.
Jeff Watson on the Signature, it is visually stunning! For the price, it's hard to believe. I had some Gibson over € 1500 in the hands, and I do not see what my swing might envy (the comparison stops there, since I never "played" Gibson.)
Purchased by the web to € 430.00, you'll see by reading the following that this is not theft ...
Body: Mahogany + Spalt Maple Top
Fingerboard: Rosewood (Indian Rosewood)
Radius: 305 mm (12 inches)
Frets: 24 Medium Jumbo (2.7 mm)
Scale Length 629 mm (24.75 inches)
Nut: Graph Tech NuBone 43 mm
Hardware Color: Cosmo BlackGold
Tuners: Grover Locking Tuners
Bridge: Tune-O-Matic, String-thru-Body
Pickups: EMG HZ Pickup Set
Controls: 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 3-way selector
Color: Natural or Black
The pickups have 4 drivers, so a split would have made the guitar even more polyvalentee. Then only problem with this brand virtually unknown, if you want to try before you buy, you may need to run away ...
So 9 / 10
Operation is super nice.
I can compare with my Fender Start and with my Washburn Idol WI67Pro.
That's Jeff Watson who handle the most enjoyable of the three. I do not have large hands, and barre chords to play lead throughout the race, everything goes. And with the double cutting access to the 24th box is without difficulty.
The overall balance is perfect for me, and the game is sitting comfortable, although personally I always prefer to play standing. It is not super light, but even after 3 hours of play, I did not feel particularly tired (3 hours go by very quickly with this guitar).
When the sound is perhaps most surprising for me in this guitar. Just plugged in, and already I was very pleasantly surprised.
I am a lover of Blues and Blues-Rock, and I was frankly a priori on the EMG. I used the custom of my guitars, especially the change of pickups, and I told myself that the purchase price, if the violin kept his promises, I would quickly change them.
And there, + I play, and - I think to change the pickups.
The knobs are of high quality, progressive, and with the settings for the amp (Koch Studiotone all lights / no effect) I get easily sound really good (to my ears). From clean to crunch (neck pickup + neck / bridge) or a more muscular (bridge), they respond now. In short, I like ...
They respond perfectly to the attack. It's really a pleasure to vary the sound simply by applying an energy to my game for the Blues, it's perfect.
I use this guitar for 1 week, but given all its qualities, I thought that we should not expect to find this brand to other guitar enthusiasts.
I find the price / quality ratio is simply unbelievable! Except for the pleasure of a jewel afford Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, guitars and other mythical, I do not see why it is necessary to spend more money for a beautiful and excellent guitar.
I would do if this choice? Yes! Of course!
And since I also eyeing towards a "TV", I think that Fender will be without my check because there is the choice in Swing Guitar ...
Go take a look on their site, it's worth. And there are a lot of videos, even if not the best medium to realize the quality of a guitar.
