Swope Geronimo Pelham Blue


"The challenge is not to be different, but to be different and great sounding.  To be unique, yet still have so much of what makes those classics classic." ~ Chris Swope

This Swope Geronimo in aged Pelham Blue is extremely resonant and lively acoustically. Like the other Geronimo's we've had, there's a great snap that's reminiscent of a T-style guitar. The guitar balances perfectly for seated playing and Swope's original pickups allow players of any style to dial in a sound within seconds -- from chunky, screaming overdrive to warm jazz comping, the Geronimo can do it all. This guitar will hold a unique position in / make a great addition to any collection. Priced with a hard case!
