The Old Englund-founded Solar Guitars has just introduced two new models, the AB2.6CAR and AB2.6C MKII, which promise to deliver “enhanced features at more affordable prices.”

These two models' distinctive feature is their locking tuners, previously unavailable on 2 Series instruments. According to VP and product developer Joe Delaney, “It’s great to have real Solar brand guitars at this price, and locking tuners is a major upgrade to functionality for fixed bridge models. These are totally pro instruments at a killer price.”
