Ola Englund's instrument manufacturing venture Solar Guitars has unveiled its first eight string model, the formidable A1.8C.
Loaded with a super-tough Evertune bridge, the Solar Guitars A1.8C promises enhanced tuning stability to withstand the most raucous of riffage at all times, making the A1.8C a formidable weapon for heavier genres.
Specs wise, the Solar Guitars A1.8C is reminiscent of other guitars released by Englund's company, featuring an ebony fretboard, Solar 18: locking tuners, two coil-splitting Seymour Duncan Solar humbuckers and a mammoth 27" scale. Elsewhere, the guitar features premium hardware, stainless steel frets and a gloomy Carbon Black Finish. Make no mistakes: this guitar can, and will, djent.
The Solar Guitars A1.8C starts shipping from April onwards. Check out Englund's website to see how it compares with other Solar Guitar models.
