OLP Tin Top by McSwain
Here we have a unique offering from OLP, a Tin Top in the style of, and licensed by, McSwain guitars. Meant to be an affordable alternative to the boutique level Tin Tops put out by McSwain. This guitar certainly follows that spirit, with an almost steampunk look from the metal topped guitar, which features a decorative gauge below the bridge. While it keeps the visual appeal of its inspiration, it is lacking in some quality build characteristics. Nothing too serious, for example, the wood has shrunk away from the top a bit, leaving some rough metal edges, and the seam from the treble-side bout is fairly visible. These issues don’t affect sound or playability, however, which this guitar has plenty of. The weight balance is surprisingly fair, and the sound is very hard-rock. The only complaint this player has is that the rough metal edge is sort of irritating in seated position, but, in stage setting this guitar is comfortable to play and striking to look at. Ships in a gigbag.
