Solar Guitars has launched four new seven-string models for 2020: the E2.7C, the V2.7C, the A1.7TBR, and the A2.7W. The Swedish guitar brand is known for its metal-focused axes, and these look to be no different.
The V2.7 features a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a string-through construction, in classic V-style tradition. The mahogany body is loaded with two Seymour Duncan Solar Pickups, and the C-shaped maple neck and ebony fretboard make full use of the all-access body shape, with 24 super-jumbo frets.
The E2.7C is similarly loaded with two Seymour Duncan Solar pickups and has the same body, neck and fretboard woods as its V counterpart. It does, however, come with 22 frets, and a standard Tune-O-Matic fixed bridge instead of a string-through tailpiece.
The A1.7TBR, an S-type model, is the highest-end model of the new seven-strings, coming with all of the Solar trimmings. These include en Evertune bridge for extreme tuning stability, as well as enormous gouges in the body for easy access to all 24 frets.
The A2.7W is a more affordable S-style seven-string, with a single-piece bridge, less dramatic cutaways and a maple fretboard instead of ebony.
The pricing for the new models is as follows:
