After launching a new signature model for Crowbar/Down guitarist Kirk Windstein just last week, Solar Guitars has further expanded its Artist Series with a new model for Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto, the GC1.6NC.

Boasting a single cutaway LP-style shape, the guitar features a mahogany body with a flame maple veneer, a mahogany neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard – with a set-thru neck/body joint design – and a six-in-line pointy headstock with Solar 18:1 locking tuners.
