    I'm thinking about the same decision myself haha. It's a hard choice because that means going without such a great guitar for another couple of months.

    Yeah and I'm wondering if there's anything I play easier on 25.5" and that I shouldn't get rid of it because of that. I wish I could just keep it and get another Solar in addition to it but I'm racking up too many guitars at this point and need to make decisions to move out certain ones in favor of others. It would be easier if I enjoyed playing it more but the pickups are very lackluster for me so I don't have it in my hands a lot.

    Yeah, I feel like I'm starting to have too many guitars now too. I like the pickups, so I can't relate there. I play the guitar every day for at least half an hour or so. It's easily my favourite guitar I've ever owned. But that Jensen E1.6 is calling to me haha.

    Someone just order a blue one actually in the "next purchase" thread. Hopefully they'll do a NGD.

    225.5" scale??? That thing is massive!

    Jokes aside, I saw this earlier. I like it a lot. It looks a lot better in person/video then the stock images. I would love to see more bursts like this in different colors in the future.

    Well at least you'd only need a .003" gauge string for that low E heh.

    225.5 is alright but I'd really prefer a 227...the tension on a 225.5 is just a bit too low if you tune to Drop G⁻⁶¹ like my band does.

    Drop G⁻⁶¹? What, do you play music for school children or the elderly? Still not good low enough for real music...in Dropped L⁻∞

    One question... after you make a preorder, when is your bank account being charged? When you place the pre-order or when the order is ready to be shipped?

    If you order directly from Solar it's charged immediately, but if from Thomann you can choose different options for payment types and charging.
