Solar Guitars has unveiled the A1.6D LTD and the A1.7D LTD, distressed finish versions of its A1 range of six and seven-string guitars.

Both guitars feature a super-strat design, with extreme gouges on each cutaway for easy access to all 24 jumbo frets. The maple neck sports a C-profile, with a 13.78” radius ebony fretboard. The only inlay is the Solar logo on the 12th fret, but glow-in-the-dark side dots should guide your hands to where they need to be, even on dark stages.

The Duncan Solar pickups are governed by a master volume and tone, with a five-way blade selector switch that will split the pickups for single coiled sounds.

The Evertune bridge and locking solar tuners should see rock-solid tuning stability and, like the rest of the hardware, are finished in distressed chrome.

Solar Guitar’s Ola Englund revealed the guitar in a recent Q&A video, where he gave a brief rundown of the model.

The A1.6D lists for €1,199 while the A1.7D lists for €1,299. More information at solar-guitars.com
