    I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this, but I could not wait. First of all, I really want to thank Ola for creating such amazing guitars. Second, shipping was extremely fast - shipped on the 10th and arrived here in New Jersey on the 11th. Simply amazing. The attention to detail is stellar. Guitar is perfect and I know I just received it, but I love it, and am very sure I will be making another Solar purchase soon!

    Woah... as someone who doesn't like burls, that looks beautiful! Very surprised to see that good of burl on these. HNGD!

    Burl is amazing. Pickups - I think they are well balanced. I did not really need to tweak any of my existing Axe III patches that much - just lowered the treble a bit on the patch, but other than that, perfect. Really happy with this guitar.

    That is very nice. The Solar burls, so far, look rather better than the KMIIIs, it seems... :)

    This is gorgeous. Definitely reminds me of the Ibanez RG7421's that had a finish almost exactly like this a year or two ago. Congrats!

    Very Nice. What is the weight of it, if you have a scale, just curious.

    Looks really nice ! The burl is awesome, and I LOVE the back of the guitar. I'm craving right now for a black matte solar with the same back, or a natural one. Would be an instant buy !

    Beautiful! Congratulations!

    I thought they didn't have a dealer here in America. How and where did you order?

    I ordered it directly off of the Solar site: https://www.solar-guitars.com/

    I just set up all of my billing and shipping info on the site, paid via credit card, and that was it. Their customer service is very quick to respond if you have any questions.

    Shipping was around $40 or so which was included in the purchase price and then I paid $60 or so for customs - I was able to pay this on the UPS site when it was shipped. Let me know if you have any questions.

    That top looks absolutely incredible. Hard to believe that's just a veneer.
    Sweet guitar dude.

    In the pics the top almost looks fake, like plastic. In person is it "woody" looking and feeling?

    In person, the burl is much more subdued/not as bright, as it is in the pics - more matte. It is, as you said, more “woody” feeling. It does not look/feel like plastic to me at all.

    The top reminds me of the cover of Phronesis from Monuments
