Solar Guitars, the brand helmed by YouTube metal maestro Ola Englund, has unveiled two new Sustainiac-loaded electrics: the six-string A1.6FRCAR Sustainiac and seven-string A1.7FRON Sustainiac.

Both instruments are loaded with Sustainiac’s Stealth Pro pickup, which essentially allows the player to flick a switch and sustain a note for as long as they desire (or the battery power lasts).
