Left me speechless
Qwaszxxl 03.03.2021
My God what a beast of a guitar! First of all, thank you Thomann for a very awesome service and packaging. Secondly, I was kinda worried about recent rumors that Solar guitars are lacking proper QC due to the pandemic, but when I received this beauty I was completely blown away!
Btw, this is my very first Solar guitar so I am completely unbiased and trying to be picky here.

The finish is transparent matte brown, which looks gorgeous combined with roasted maple neck and fretboard. No scratches, not even next to the edges of the frets. Fretwork is stunning, no sharp corners, no buzzing. The guitar was not set-up'ed to my liking, so it took some time to adjust everything to my taste, but now she plays like heaven. Floyd rose is smooth, fine tuning screws are refined and softly turning. The weight is not very light, but also not heavy - somewhere in the middle. Properly balanced - no neck dive while standing. Neck is comfortable and fast, the shape is very similar to Schecter's thin C but little bit wider.
Almost forgot to mention about the attention to details: I was pleasantly surprised to see that even the springs of the floyd rose are dampened with special rubber!
About pickups: it's really a personal thing so I will only say that the neck pickup is not my cup of tea, might switch it to the real Fender'ish single coil. The bridge pickup is awesome, really cutting through the mix, not muddy at all, perfect both for riffing and soloing.

For those, who don't have time to read it full:
Pros:
-the way she looks is insane
-fretwork is flawless, no sharp edges, no tool marks on the fretboard
-body paint is also flawless, not a single scratch on any side
-sounds good on the bridge pickup
-very comfortable and fast neck
-properly balanced weight, no neck dive

Cons:
-Solar logo is not of the best quality, seems not to last long (but who cares?)
-Neck pickup is lacking some character to my ears
-Cannot put down this monster, help me!

All in all, this particular model is a masterpiece, truly inspiring instrument. It feels really premium for such a small price. Worth every single cent.

Cool guitar, but color and woods do not match the pictures.
Marcelo Sabadini 23.04.2021
The guitar is pretty cool in overall. The neck is very comfortable, the body shape fit me very well. The pickups are very usable, I was not expecting much, since they are basically duncan design, but they are very usable. Even the clean sounds are nice. The only problem in my opinion is the color and woods. The color of the body is way darker than what you can see in the pictures, I barely can see the wood grain. Mine is similar to a solid brown color with a mate finish. But the biggest problem for me is the fretboard wood. On my guitar is super dark, almost like a dark chocolate color, while the rest of the neck is the regular caramel color of baked maple. They don't lookalike the same wood type. After I got my guitar, I start research about that and find out in solar website, guitar with darker fretboard are considered a factory fail, and you can buy those with some discount. If visuals really matter for you, ask thomann for some pictures of the guitar or go to the solar website, so you don't get disappointed as I did

Überraschend gute Gitarre
FIdo3 12.05.2021
Ich habe mir diese Gitarre zum Einsatz in härteren Musikrichtungen gekauft und bin positiv überrascht, wie gut sie auch bei cleanen und eher bluesigen sounds überzeugt. Klar, es ist eine Metalgitarre, da braucht man sich auch nichts vormachen, aber dank der Splitbarkeit der Tonabnehmer und dem wirklich außergewöhnlich differenzierten und etwas hellerem Ton schon im unverstärkten Zustand gehen auch andere Sounds sehr gut. Eine extrem flexible Gitarre, die ordentlich Druck macht. Dank der Momentanen Pandemie Situation konnte ich leider noch keinen Test im Proberaum oder auf der Bühne vornehmen, da bin ich aber sehr zuversichtlich.

Was mich wirklich geärgert hat, war die wirklich extrem schlecht eingestellte Saitenlage. Das habe ich so noch nicht erlebt, weder bei anderen Solar Gitarren, noch bei anderen Herstellern. Da mich der Sound aber so dermaßen überzeugt hat, tut dies dem ganzen kaum abbruch, mit guter Einstellung ist das alles kein Problem.

Die Optik ist so, wie ich sie mir dank der Bilder vorgestellt habe und überzeugt total. Wie gut das mit den fluoreszierenden Dots live funktioniert, werde ich dann sehen.

Eine volle Empfehlung

Prima Arbeitsgerät
IT IS 06.03.2021
Ich spiele mit dieser Gitarre hauptsächlich Metal (Death /Thrash) dafür ist diese Gitarre wie gemacht .Bis jetzt habe ich die Gitarre bei Proben und bei Home Studio Aufnahmen benutzt . Verzerrte Klänge kommen stramm und durchsetzungsfähig daher. Cleansounds sind auch möglich. Dank Coil Splitting ist die Gitarre doch sehr flexibel was ihre Sounds betrifft. Die Verarbeitung der Gitarre finde ich gut und sie sieht edel aus. Das Werksetup der Gitarre hätte noch ein bisschen besser seinen können. Ist aber andern Gitarren dieser Preisklasse , meiner Meinung nach, immer noch überlegen. Starke Gitarre
