    Is it possible to chamber an explorer for weight relief?

    I really enjoy playing my Solar 7 explorer, but the weight has been a problem for long sessions standing up or even sitting down. is it possible to chamber a neck through explorer, then apply say a quilt maple top? Would significant chambering provide enough weight releif? Would it cause...

    Solar 29” scale baritone!

    It's about time we have more 29" options. If only it was a fanned fret 8 string at the scale length.

    How do the Elysian's sound? Did it feet smoothly in the pickup cavities? I have a V1.7 and E2.7. I'm hoping the duncan solars can be swapped out easily for the nazgul/sentients. I'm thinking of 500k pots and a black tusq nut. Maybe try a paint job like the Aleix Laiho Hexed signature.

    Great seeing these Solar Guitar mods. What other mods have you guys tried out? At this stage I'm looking at simple changes like swapping out the Duncan Solars for Nazgul/Sentients and Juggernaughts.

    Abasi Concepts/Larada Megathread

    Can you share the fretboard width of the Abasi and aristrides with the narrower string spacing? I find the strandberg Boden 8 to be much wider than a kiesel Vader VM8, with a fretboard width of 56mm compared to 51mm respectively.

    What are decent headless fanned fret guitars for 2021?

    Thought I'd give everyone an update. So I ended up getting a handful of the guitars I was keen to buy. Strandberg Boden 8: Strandberg lives up to the hype and plays incredibly well. The enduraneck is quite comfortable and didn't take much time to get used to. It's a bit thicker than I like at...

    Which seymour duncan set goes well with a second guitar with Nazgul/Sentient

    This is exactly it, it would be great to compliment the Nazgul/Sentient combo with something with more clarity. I'll check out the Duncan Custom. Custom 5 and Pegasus. Never heard of the Black Heaven's, I'm keen to check out some sound clips of that actuall. Hells yeah, that sounds amazing...

    I have two solars a V1.7 and an E2.7. Honestly, I haven't had any QC issues and both play really well. I did have problems in the past where the setup and tunning stability was an issue. Redid the setup multiple times and now it plays like a dream.

    What's the best way to stain birdseye maple fretboards?

    This is a relief, looks like I won't need to tape down the frets. I'll keep the tap for the back and sides of the neck. I was considering a darker cholately or a red Jarra (Australian wood)
