we need more maple on everything he puts out....
BUT holy hell these all look so so siiiick.
These look cool, but nothing screams "buy me now", for my tastes anyway. I'm hoping one of the body styles he can eventually offer is a take on the Dime Stealth shape. The old Washburns aren't super easy to get and I'm not buying an import Dean.
I saw the picture on FB of all of the Solars going out. This is great for him, but hopefully these came pristine from the factory, because there’s just no way he has time to open them up and do anything other than look at all of them in 24 hours. I was thinking he’d do a set up or something, like how Perry does with the GTRs. But, if he has a good system in place at the factory, he might be ok to just give them a quick once over.
Well, maybe this is all about storytelling : he might have QCed everything a few weeks ago, but in order to make some buzz, he is posting this content to make us believe everything went really fast, hence he is creating a sense of urgency and hype (Quite the opposite of Chapman's who took months to upload pictures on his website and to announce prices). This is quite a common marketing tactic.
He has probably started to ship ordered guitars this week-end, however.
Some closer looks at a few models and Ola talks a bit about them
These look great, love everything I've seen from this brand. Hoping I can fit one of these in my budget sometime next year...
Well, they may look like so many other axes in the market; I have no detailed info on how they might be better crafted than others.
However, I really like seeing (on most models) the volume knob placed for pinky swellings, and the pup switch placed away from knobs so one actually can do fast switching
Good lück with your new series Ola
Mine is on its way, tracking says it’s in Barcelona. I wonder how soon it will arrive.
Yeah, good point.
I hate making these comments, because I feel like being a dick for doing so, but I am really hoping he has his ducks in a row. I'd hate for him to be another also-ran. I am 100% in favor of musicians getting revenue from music, but we're generally not good with business stuff. (As evidenced by the ridiculous number of brands that have come and gone in the last 10 years.) So I feel like I have this teacher/paternal relationship going, where I'm criticizing everything he does that isn't 100% guaranteed for success in my eyes. Despite the fact that I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.
...you mean for inadvertent volume reduction ;-)
(This is what happens to me when the volume knob is too close to the bridge...I have bad playing technique)
while palm muting my pinky will inadvertently mute the entire guitar lol.
yeh its a bit weird that one, because the stock photos and that pic Holowway posted both dont have neck binding. Yet its advertised as having wood binding on the neck, and you can see ti on the youtube demo
plus all the Type S guitars have neck binding. So its kinda a thing of the line, so it should have, but no idea why it doesnt now. Maybe a mistake of the factory on this first batch?, last minute change? who knows. But yeh these would look awesome no with a creme binding, but with an ivoroid one, or white.... I hate creme bindings
Almost as good looking as Zakk Wylde's signatures
Low blow. Unlike Solar, Wylde Audio stuff is built by WMI Korea for branding by a niche metal player and sold on the strength of his image alone to set itself apart from competitors, rather than specs or competitive pricing. Plus all of Wylde’s guitars have a stupid loud graphic on the front that only his message board-restricted fanbase would find aesthetically appealing. Even then, the fans that can only convey praise by repeating how “sick” his guitars are, rather than a metric meaningful to anyone else, either can’t afford to buy one or don’t genuinely support the guy enough to put their money where their mouth is.
How you can look at either and say they’re similar is beyond my intelligence.
You didn’t quote Him nor reply, so i think He won’t even read Your great post.
My priorities are all out of order.
On that last Ola video interview posted he shows that Blue guitar without Neck Binding, so that "Promo" video must have been made with a pre-production Model and they removed the Binding later on.
Personally I prefer Necks without any binding if I can choose.
About the Wylde comparision post... welll.. dont feed the TROLL
It was just a joke.
We don't take to kindly to Zakk Wylde jokes in these parts.
Jokes are supposed to be funny. FYI.
