Solar Guitars – the company led by metal musician and YouTuber Ola Englund – has unveiled The Canibalismo V1, a V-shaped electric guitar model that comes in six- and seven-string variants.

The guitar features a swamp ash body, matched to a three-piece maple neck with an ebony fingerboard and 24 super jumbo frets. It also sports Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side dots, and a Solar Guitars logo as its 12th fret position marker.

Pickups on the instrument are a duo of Duncan Solar humbuckers, which are an exclusive model to Solar Guitars, and were created in a collaboration between Englund and Seymour Duncan. The Canibalismo’s control section was kept very simple; you’ll only have to contend with a single volume knob and pickup selector.

As for its hardware, the Canibalismo V1 has Solar locking tuners and an EverTune F-type bridge. The guitar’s finish is what Solar Guitars calls: Blood Red Open Pore With Blood Splatter.

The six-string Canibalismo is available for $1,199, while the seven-string version goes for $1,299.
