    Another Solar! First impressions about this guitar were convincing, great guitar for this price. Nothing bad to say about fretwork, fit or finish, overall feel is very solid. I'm used to thinner neck profiles, but this feels comfy and playable. Action is low when I got it set up for my needs, pickups sound balanced for this guitar, but maybe something like SD Black Winter would fit my style better.

    I've been following Ola's channel since 2009 when he was just some guy doing amp demo's, and bying this guitar felt almost like bying from a friend. Long way from there to here, so thanks to @Ola Englund from these awesome guitars!

    Thanks! It's ebony that has some brown colored streaks in it. Fretboard is not dyed or polished like in some other guitars, for example in S2.6 models what I've seen it is definetly more glossy looking. I didn't even clean it from the little factory gunk it has, but I suppose it will darken up with some lemon oil.
