In 2014, Chris Swope started his own brand after apprenticing with Sadowsky and working at the Gibson Custom Shop.
The 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.
