Washburn release a range of high performance modern metal guitars in conjunction with Ola England as part of his signature range. The series consists of some serious looking V-shaped instruments featuring custom made Duncan Solar pickups and high performance EverTune, Tune-o-matic or Floyd Rose Special bridges. Most of the other features are shared across the range:

  • The Washburn PX-SOLARV16ETC has an EverTune bridge, 25½“ scale length, mahogany body and neck, ebony fingerboard, Buzz Feiten Tuning System, full access neck, Super Jumbo frets, Grover 18:1 tuners, Duncan Solar pickups (custom made for the Solar series), 3 way toggle switch and coil cut.

This range all look ‘very’ metal and have a lot of features to make high gain riffing something that should be easy to achieve. Ola England is known for his playing in bands The Haunted and before that Six Feet Under. So his influence and experience on this range shines through all the guitars. They are also a pretty fun, cool-looking modern take on the ’50s classic Gibson Flying V!
