Lyrics by Sam McNiece
This high-end guitar is built for the road.
Ola Englund’s Solar Guitars brand aims to “design an absolutely brilliant line of guitars for the modern guitarist, whether you’re a beginner or a pro”. Coming from a metal background, Engund has crafted a solid new guitar in the T1.6AN that will be able to handle anything you throw at it.

“Created with the most discerning six-string guitarists in mind, this high-end, feature-packed guitar is part of the top-of-the-line Solar Type T1 line, offering exceptional elegance and performance.”
The Type T1.6AN is a beautiful guitar thanks to its aged wood finish. This guitar features an alder body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard and 24 super jumbo stainless steel frets. There is an aged metal pick guard so you can dispose of the guitar without worrying about damaging the guitar.
Using The Evertune Constant Voltage Bridge, which is an all-mechanical system designed to maintain guitar tuning, the Type T1.6AN is a road-ready guitar. Duncan Solar pickups allow for a wide variety of tonal options while the blade switch allows for five different pickup selections.
Solar 18:1 locking tuners allow for precise tuning, and a clever design gives you full neck access from below.
For gigging guitarists or those who like to play at night, there are glow-in-the-dark dots to easily identify which fret you’re playing.
