It's as good as I hoped it would be.

Peter Nenov, 28.08.2018
The guitar sounds and feels great. It has very comfortable shape and the neck fits very well in my hand. The reach cutouts for the lowest frets are very well made, I could reach 24th fret without any stretch.

The pickups have a full, precise sound for heavy styles and they are great in clean amp mode as well. The whole guitar sound is much fuller and richer, compared to my Squier Standard Strat.

The ET bridge is way better than i expected - it is very easy to tune, and it took only a few minutes of setup to get the bends - and they feel the same as on the other bridges. Gives good position for palm mutes also.

The guitar looks amazing and is very stylish, and the build quality is excellent. I chose Solar guitar because the brand feels like it's a passion project and it's made with love and respect, and that shows in the guitar that i got. No design or features compromises - everything is great.

pros - Looks amazing; Really comfortable to play; ET bridge is excellent;
cons - I can't find any.

PS. The packaging is also very good - double box, a lot of soft protective pieces in the box, it could travel safely :)

Abstract: The Solar A1.6ETC is a top-processed guitar with an extraordinary look for the modern metal sound at a fair price

Long Version: I became aware of the A1.6ETC through Ola Englund's YouTube channel. So it was natural to combine the already planned visit with Thomann with a detailed test session. Result: Played, thrilled and immediately taken. Thanks to Thomann for the perfect service!

Processing + Setup

Here I have absolutely nothing to complain about, I have rarely had such a perfectly processed guitar in my hand. This concerns in particular the neck or the fingerboard, paint, inlay: everything is processed neatly, as well as the frets. The hardware parts also feel very valuable, whether they are it will show the time;) The guitar is a real flatterer and I just like the body shape of the A-series with the additional recesses on the cutaways. The set-up was good, not an extremely flat string position, but more than usable and I personally like it better. One or the other string had to be retuned a bit, which on the one hand in the Evertune needed some familiarization, but on the other hand was completely unproblematic, as a very good guide and the necessary tools were included and the process is also easier than I expected. I think that after a few string changes (only here must be voted) into flesh and blood.

sound

The Duncan Solar provide a rather medium output with a distinctly dark color, but without sounding dull, but with a lot of bite and very defined, definitely tuned to modern metal. Everything else very straightforward here, bridge pickup for rhythm board, the neck pickup provides more warmth, the pickups in the split position, I found tonally enriching what mMn. not always the case with other guitars. Anyone who has seen Ola's videos knows what awaits him here, of course the guitar alone does not make the sound, but the pickups sound very authentic. Again, I like the character of the solar.

Positive & Negative

All in all, it can be said that the Solar A1.6ETC is a fair offer. I have not been able to determine anything negative in less than a week now, but rather think that solar will become my main guitar in the future.
