Solar Guitars Announces New Single-Cut Models

null

Ola Englund’s Solar Guitars has announced the introduction of the new Type G body shape.

The Solar Type G is a single cutaway shape offered in two variations: Type GF (flat top) and Type GC (Carved top). The new model features a 24.75” scale, contoured body with back comfort cuts, set neck with an all access heel and comparable premium features as the current Solar lineup.

Said Englund, "Our goal was to design a traditional looking single-cut guitar with a real Solar Guitars twist. After endless body and headstock shape designs we were lost. We found the perfect body shape but all the headstock designs just did not look right. We almost gave up. By accident we edited the traditional Solar 6 inline headstock to that body and bang, we found our way home.”
