reverend McGee: It’s an exclusive club I
look to be a part of very shortly. I can’t wait to
receive my very own Soloway.
He’s only made a little over 200 guitars so it’s
quite an exclusive club. :P Glassy guitars,

worship music with a very dynamic worship
team. It is beautiful to the eye, to the touch,
and to the ears (most of the time anyway...).
Scott, thanks for posting this! I miss the old
forum terribly and just yesterday finally deleted
