    I really dig it. It goes along with Trey's Ibanez Universe.

    The matching red 6 string V is also awesome.

    Can anyone think when Solar guitars may possibly have another sale? I'm really wanting a baritone 6!

    I love that the 8 has an inline headstock. I don't see any model on the website?

    Solar: plz do a 27" scale 8 with a Floyd Rose! No one else is doing it, you'd own that entire market! Ok, it's maybe 12 people in size, but still.

    Congratulations on your new home, Ola. Talking about your childhood growing up in a home hit me in the feels. I grew up in the country and loved being able to roam in the woods and fields. Very happy for you.

    Thanks man, it's a dream come true for me. I was feeling that my kids are growing up WAY too quick, so the time is now...

    Yeah, congrats man! Owning your own house is definitely awesome - I bought ours roughly a year ago and have been super happy with it so far. Even though I sometimes have nightmares about having to renovate the sewage system :lol: (which is mostly original, aka. built in 1952)
    There's an unlimited amount of stuff to do all the time, that you just have to learn to ignore to keep your sanity, but once you learn that, then it's all fine. I mostly grew up living in a detached house too and never really felt at home in a "lägenhet".

    Back in my university days I learned Swedish for one semester.
    "Lägenhet" is one of the few words I still can remember.
    So I totally understood the sentence you where writing which makes me feel so sophisticated right now.
    How awesome is that...?

    Call me stupid but I didn't find how to pay in € on the solar website. Yes, I *can* buy on Thomann but the less intermediaries the better. (decided on a V1.6ARTIST LTD in the end. One more V for the stable) (And yes I can pay in $ but then my bank murders me)

    I see prices in € on the Solar website. Maybe you're using some VPN that makes it look like you're outside Europe to the site?

    Add something to the cart, put your shipping address in, then go to the home page. That's what I did when the site was in euros by default before I bought something and had an account that remembers my address.

    Yep, watched the video too! Nerf wars are fun! Congratulations! Bought my first 2.5 years ago too. But, there's a power struggle with the wife if the basement room should be my music room or her craft room. Dammit...

    Haha, I just told my wife "this will be my man cave or GTFO" and that's the end of that story :lol: It's still full of boxes though.

    Checked yesterday for that $ stuff and yes it's IP dependent. I'll make the purchase this week end. :)
