We’ve become accustomed to frequent new model releases from Solar Guitars. But here’s something completely different from the Ola Englund-led company: its first-ever bolt-on electric guitar designs, the Type AB and Type SB.

The AB1.6FRN features a swamp ash body, three-piece roasted maple neck with a thin C profile and roasted maple fretboard fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets and Luminlay side dots.

There’s also a 25.5-inch scale, Solar locking tuners, a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, Duncan Solar HH pickups, one volume control and one tone control, each with a push pull for series/parallel and a three-way blade switch.

The guitar comes in a Natural Brown matte finish and is offered for $949.

The AB1.6HTPB boasts the same features, but swaps in a Hipshot USA bridge for the Floyd. It’s available in a Red Purple Burst matte finish for $849.

The AB1.6S and AB1.7C seven-string, meanwhile, offer alder bodies and EverTune bridges. The AB1.6S comes with an Antique Silver matte finish for $999, while the AB1.7C has a Carbon (black matte) finish for $1,099.
