Ola Englund’s Solar Guitars is about to release a spooky Halloween Flying V guitar in October: The V2.6. But will it be a trick or a treat?

The latest Solar Guitars model is named the V2.6 Halloween and yes it is a V shape! It features a swamp ash body, a three-piece maple neck, ebony fretboard with a red Solar inlay around the twelfth fret and Grover 18:1 ratio tuners on that pointy headstock. You get a tune-o-matic bridge with through-body stringing, so I would expect to find the sustain very good on this guitar.

Pickup-wise you get a set of Duncan Solar Alnico V all controlled via a three-way toggle switch, with a single volume and tone control. So dialling in this guitar should be simple enough. I have yet to try out one of Solar Guitar’s V models. However, if they are as nice as the other Solar models I’ve tried, we could be in for a treat with this red devil.

The Trans Blood Red Matte finish shows off the swamp ash grain really nicely on the guitar. I think if you want an instrument that stands out, then this could well be the guitar for you. The price includes a gig bag, which is great, as finding something to keep a Flying V guitar safe can be awkward. There are a million options for Stratocaster guitars, but Flying V gig bags are nowhere near as common.

Ola Englund’s take on modern-day ‘Metal/Hard Rock’ guitars is definitely worth checking out and the pricing is more than reasonable. I would suggest checking out the official demo video below to get an idea of what the V2.6 Halloween can do.

RRP – USD 799 / EUR 799
