Solar Guitars announces new colours for A2.6C  ·  Source: YouTube/Solar Guitars

Ola Englund’s Solar Guitars has just announced four brand new colours for its A2.6C model. It’s quite the departure from the usual flat blacks or whites. You can now order one in either Blue Metallic Matte, Blood Tangerine Metallic, Gun Metal Matte and even Lemon Neon!

This well-specified guitar is now available to order in four new finishes which should be shipping in September. Usually, you would associate the Solar Guitar models with a more ‘Stealth’ flat black finish and so it is good to see some more options available at last. Blue Metallic Matte, Blood Tangerine Metallic, Gun Metal Matte and Lemon Neon will now be available for you to order directly from their site.

Solar Guitars new colours for Autumn


All the standard features have been retained, including the mahogany body, maple neck, 24-fret ebony fingerboard and a string-through-body hardtail bridge. You get a single Volume and Tone control with a five-way switch to control the Duncan Solar humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions.

The price is certainly attractive. I appreciate having a few new colours to choose from, as well. Ola Englund is gradually making his guitar brand more approachable to a broader variety of guitar players. With the introduction of new colours, it should widen the appeal of this range considerably. There’s a nod towards classic ’80s Ibanez RG550 colours in there, but the range still maintains brand identity through the body carve and that Solar Guitars logo at the twelfth fret. All in all, I think these look like a good buy for anyone after a modern-looking, high-performance guitar.

RRP – EUR 649 Available from September

I’m wondering if you get paid for this ad. First off, even though you put “Duncan Solar” in bold letters, they are not designed by nor manufactured by Seymour Duncan. By calling them “Duncan Solar” Ola is implying that somehow the company Seymour Duncan from Santa Barbara, California, was involved in the creation of the humbuckers. They were not. It just so happens that Seymour Duncan never registered an international trademark for “Duncan” in guitar electronics, so the Korean/Chinese company, probably G&B, that actually manufactured the pickups put a “Duncan Solar” on the cover. At one point Ola claimed that… Read more »
