    Soloway Guitars on indefinite hiatus...

    Soloway Guitars is now on "indefinite hiatus" - The Gear Page

My focus is now entirely on playing, teaching and recording. I'm not going to say never again but it seems highly unlikely.

    My thanks to all those who have supported us over the years and made this adventure possible.

    End of an era. His work was always so fantastic looking.

    Not surprising , since he tried offloading building to someone else a few years ago. I agree, amazing looking guitars.

    Such a shame, since I always loved his designs.

    Amazingly talented guy. I've always wanted a Swan 7.

    Best of luck to him with whatever he does next.

    Sad to hear this news, always loved his work. I hope he returns but if not I wish him the best of luck with whatever he does for the rest of his life.

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No. ― Alan Moore

    Such a shame to hear this. I remember seeing his works years and years ago now on Jemsite, it was always fantastic. The designs, the materials, everything was great. I remember looking and drooling alot back then.
