Ola Englund's guitar company Solar Guitars has unveiled two new 7-string instruments, the E1.7FBB and V1.7FBB, offering familiar body shapes with appointments tailored for all you drop-tuned riff lords.
Modelled upon Gibson's tried and true Explorer and Flying-V designs, the new 7-strings from Solar Guitars provide heavy guitarists with the perfect machine to bust out thunderous riffs and squealing high pitched leads.
Featuring a mahogany construction with a distinctive Flame Black Burst Matte finish, the E1.7FBB and V1.7FBB share similar appointments, with a 25.5" neck, ebony fretboard with stainless steel frets, Luminlay side dots and an Evertune bridge, ensuring your riffs are on point at all times.
Both guitars also include Seymour-Duncan Solar pickups, as well as a three-way toggle switch and knobs to control volume and tone. There's also an intuitive push-pull control for coil cutting, offering a plethora of tonal possibilities. Check out how the E1.7FBB sounds in Englund's demonstration below.
Both models are available for order now via Solar Guitars' website.
