A modern player's affordable dream.

Krzychu, 26.08.2018
Let's start off with a little background. I play mostly modern death, melodic death and thrash metal. My goal was to find an instrument that would suit these rather extreme metal subgenres. I wanted a fixed bridge, passive pickups eqquiped instrument. Oh, and it also had to be a V. Vs are metal af. When I first heard that Ola is up and running with his company, I knew I had to get a Solar.
Also, here I'd like to thank Thomann's customer service, for helping me out with a minor tracking issue.
Now, to the point.
The guitar came double boxed - no damage was done to it during shipping. First look at it and I fell in love. Beautiful black satin finish is just stunning. Quick restring, tuned it to Drop C, and then straight to the EVH 5153's red channel. This things chugs, and chugs, and chugs. The pickups are not that hot, but very articulate and they sustain very well. Coil-split neck pickups delivers delicious cleans, and bridge on full volume is a total hellriser.
A bit thin, fast neck with that awesome fret access makes you wanna shred all day. Tuners work just fine, handling both e standard, and drop G#. The only issue I had with it is the tone knob - it wobbled quite a bit, and was noisy when touched - I had it replaced. Fret edges are nice and smooth, no dead spots whatsoever. The guitar came with an awesome, matching gigbag, very light, solid and handy. No paint drips, no scratches, nothing. Clean and smooth. I'd really recommend these to anyone - if Solar keeps it QC standards I'm definitely getting the A2.7 as my next guitar.
This review was written after 2.5 months of actual playing, be it shows or rehersal, or just jamming at home - it never let me down. Oh, just remember to change the strings as soon as you get it. Stock NYXL are a total bummer - A and D snapped like they were made of plastic. Other than that, it's a great instrument. Do yourself a favour and order one.
I'm out
