Gotoh Floyds are absolutely awesome for anyone who hasn’t had experience with them
Yep, basically Gotoh's way of selling an original Edge for 1/3rd the price.
Not really. They're completely different units. They're much closer in feel, dimension, and materials to a Schaller/OFR.
Really, besides provenance, the only thing the Edge and 1996T share are locking posts and a (different) pop-in arm.
But you're still getting a trem on par with an Edge for 1/3rd the price.
The 1996T is better spec'd overall, even the finish is nicer.
I love me some Edge, but they have their quirks.
I have a feeling Gotoh is more stringent on QC/QA for their own branded products than Hoshino holds them to.
Can wholeheartedly agree with this. The care Gotoh put in to just the simple design aspects, tiny details you only notice when you’re fiddling with one screw, is amazing.
Their QC, design and overall work in my experience anyway has just been top notch.
SINGLE PUP! YES more of this!!!
@Trashgreen sees new green guitar from Solar...”this is what we’ve been training for, let’s do this!”
that color is pretty killer. I’d love to see this in other string combos. I’m still waiting to see the specs that force me to buy an 8 string Solar. (Aka I need an excuse...)
Love looking at Solar guitars, but I’m too particular about neck shape to actually buy one. That green does look really good!
I can’t see where the jack is. For me a V needs a top mounted jack. Any guitar really, not a nock on Solar by any means, but a front mounted jack is essential, especially as I get more familiar with an age related condition sometimes called couch position.
Unfortunately, the jack is in the inside on the lower horn. It can be pretty annoying, depending on how vertical the guitar is when you play it standing. I had to adjust because it was straight up bumping on my leg. Guitar is otherwise very good.
Does not make any sense at all to me. I think it should be upper horn like Jackson etc.
If I was still gigging I'd buy that in a heartbeat. It looks cool as fuck but still restrained!
Nice design right there! I’ve always preferred the traditional front mount which makes it easy to use practice headphone amps and right angle cables .
I'm actually selling a guitar to buy this. Single pickup barebone metal guitars are the shit
The Gotoh floyd and the single pup are the first I’ve actually been genuinely excited about. Very hard to not order the pair of them.
That satin olive drab, army green V is RIDICULOUS. I NEED IT
If that guitar had gold hardware it would be like a Master Chief edition.
Serious question - at what point does Solar make too many models?
