Swope Guitars...
Chris Swope honed his craft with stints at Sadowski and the Gibson Custom Shop, In 2013 Chris then branched out on his own to start Swope Guitars.Swope guitars range from the offset double cut Geronimo model, the familiar 'T' style MG and, the contoured-body singlecut, the GTO.

Swope Guitars. There's a new sound.

Swope Geronimo #89
Geronimo- The one that started it all.  An offset alder bodied double cut.  Featuring the O.G. pickups, (Original Geronimo), Swope’s original humbucking design – full voiced with a wonderful clarity.  A 5-way switch allows for a very versatile tone pallet.  Positions 2 and 4 combine one coil from each pickup, one position is in parallel mode for a hum-free single coil-ish vibe, the other position is in series, offering a third humbucker option in a two pickup guitar.  A rotary “Funk Bump” switch also adds a filter to the middle position (both pickups on) giving the player the option of adding a little quack to his cleans, makes the dirty sounds rip nicely, too.
This beautiful Swope Geronimo is a sight to behold. A beautiful Knock Around finish with a nice dark rosewood fingerboard. Swope guitars are finished in a very pure, no plasticizer, nitro-cellulose lacquer. While added plasticizers allow a guitar to be shipped all over the world without the finish checking the addition of those plasticizers means the finish never really cures. Swope's finish is thin and hard.

Swope MG #086
Swope MG Guitar
MG- Ash slab bodied single cut.  Featuring Swope’s MG pickup set.  These are broadly inspired by the overall California sound of the fifties and sixties.  The bridge pickup offers lots of shimmer and spank while the neck pickup has the nice warm sound of a breeze blowing somewhere between the surf and the roadhouse.  A simple 3-way switch with master volume and master tone is augmented by a push/pull tone pot.  Pull up on that knob and the two pickups are combined in series mode, adding a creamy humbucker to the mix while completely bypassing the 3-way switch.

This lucious Tabacco Burst Swope MG is fantastic. A 2 piece centerseam swamp ash body. A center seam allows for the bridge to drive both sides equally.  Any additional piece of wood added beyond that is just dead weight, dragging down and influencing the way the body resonates adding one more variable to the mix that is going to make the end result less consistent.

• Tobacco Burst finish

Swope GTO #082
Swope Guitars available at Infinity Guitars
The GTO comes standard in alder. All bodies are 2 piece center seam. Why? While every piece of wood is different, Chris wants to maintain as consistent of a sonic result as possible from guitar to guitar. Features Swope’s GTO pickups. These pickups are lap steel inspired and have a bit more output and fuller mid-range than the MGs but still retain that famous Swope clarity. As the name implies, the GTO is the “muscle car” in the Swope line-up. Wiring is the same as the MG, complete with the push/pull series humbucker switch.
Swope GTO
Chris Swope Guitars
This is our first Swope. This Ocean Turquoise GTO is an excellent example of Chris' work. Swope guitars are finished in a very pure, no plasticizer, nitro-cellulose lacquer. “Knock-Around” which has nice finish checks and maybe a little doink here or there. While still a very clean guitar, the slight relic job takes the fear factor out of playing the guitar lest you put a mark on it.

GTO Features:
• Ocean Turquoise finish
• Nitrocellulose Lacquer
• Contoured alder body
• Maple neck
• Rosewood fingerboard
• Bone nut
• Full C neck shape
• Neck thickness:.830 @ 1st fret .950 12th fret
• 25.5" scale
• 12" fingerboard radius
• 1 12/32" nut width
• Swope GTO pickups
• 7 lbs. 2 oz.
• Serial # 082
• G & G hard case
