    I have accumulated a large number of Soloways over the years and as part of a plan to play more and hoard less I'm offering some for sale. I am open to reasonable offers of course. I'm located in Ireland and am new here but have a lot of guitar trading experience and can share eBay and Reverb feedback if needed.

    L351 Curly mahogany one piece top/swamp ash, Lollars (El Rayo and Imperial if I recall), Hipshot bridge, mint. €1400
    Swan, so 27" scale, currently set up as a baritone (BEADF#B) but I will restring and adjust for standard tuning if preferred.

    1994 Chris Larkin archtop (ASAS Jazz) €2000
    My dear departed friend and master luthier Chris Larkin made some beautiful archtop guitars among many other styles and although my jazz credentials are very slender I have been holding on to this one in case my talent develops late. It shows a couple of lacquer cracks but is otherwise glorious. In a battered but serviceable hard case. Kent armstrong pickup. 8cm deep (3 1/8"), 38cm lower bout (15"). Pictures:

    @marcwhy: Thanks! I have mixed feelings about parting with them.

    Hi Ross. For anyone who's interested, Ross has owned a variety of our guitars almost from the start. I've done lots of business with him over the years and I'll vouch for him as reliable, honest and real.

    BTW, that sunburst 7 string was one of the first batch of three that began the whole thing.

    Great to hear from you Jim, thanks for that. My teal Swan with the 1” neck is still one of my all time favourites! Also hollow body #1.

    E077 has a couple of dings on the back which I hadn’t noticed before taking the recent photos so I’m dropping the price from €1200 to €1000
