This premium guitar is built for the road.

Ola Englund’s brand Solar Guitars aims to “design an absolutely killer line of guitars for the modern guitar player, no matter if you are a beginner or a professional.” From a metal background, Engund has designed a solid new guitar in the T1.6AN, that will be able to handle whatever you throw at it.

“Created with the most demanding six-string guitarists in mind, this premium feature-loaded guitar belongs to the Solar Type T1 top of the line range, offering outstanding elegance and performance. ”

The Type T1.6AN is a gorgeous looking guitar due to its aged wood finish. This guitar features an alder body, maple neck, ebony fretboard and 24 stainless steel super-jumbo frets. There’s a distressed metal pick guard so you can thrash away and not worry about damaging the guitar.

Utilising Evertune’s constant-tension bridge, which is a fully-mechanical system designed to keep the guitar in tune, the Type T1.6AN is a road ready guitar. Duncan Solar pickups allow for a wide variety of tonal options while the blade switch allows for five different pickup selections.

The Solar 18:1 locking tuners allow for precise tunings and a clever design gives you full access to the neck from the bottom side.

For gigging guitarists, or those who like playing in the night, there’s glow in the dark dots to easily identify which fret you’re playing.
