Solar Guitars heralds its first single-cut design with 8 new electric guitars

Ola Englund’s Solar Guitars has issued another typically fruitful new announcement, this time unveiling an all new single-cut electric guitar shape, the Type G, available in eight different configurations.

Two variations are available: Type GF (flat top) and Type GC (carved top), both of which feature a 24.75” scale, contoured body with back comfort cuts, set neck with all-access heel and similar specs to other Solar models.

By accident we edited the traditional Solar 6 inline headstock to that body... and BANG… we found our way home

“Our goal was to design a traditional looking single cut guitar with a real Solar Guitars twist,” says Ola.

“After endless body and headstock shape designs we were lost. We found the perfect body shape but all the headstock designs just did not look right… We almost gave up.

“By accident we edited the traditional Solar 6 inline headstock to that body... and BANG… we found our way home. So f€%k tradition, we are Solar Guitars, we do whatever we want….”

Well, quite. All eight models are available to order from Solar Guitars now - see below for the full lowdown on each.
