Solar Guitars has just unveiled the new signature model for Patrik Jensen, the guitarist for extreme metal bands The Haunted and Witchery. The E1.6 Jensen is designed for modern metal players, and boasts a host of features that make it the go-to axe for fretwork acrobats.
EMG 85 and 81 active humbuckers—known for beefy bass and fat highs—power the Explorer-shaped six-string. A swamp ash body with open-pore finish, a full-access neck, an ebony fretboard, and a set-through neck round up the E1.6’s features. And to top things off, a Trans Black Matte finish and special “Impact Wave” fret markers make the guitar look as evil as it sounds.
“I finally have an instrument that combines all the hardware features I expect from an exceptional guitar,” said the Swedish musician. “Not only does the guitar look amazing, but [it] also plays with such ease that I can fully focus on getting the most out of the songs, rather than having to focus on getting the guitar to do what I want.”
