35" on the 5 string models
I need a Solar 5-string with stainless steel frets and a bass EverTune bridge!
Now he just needs to release headless guitars and maybe a SG so there are no more "I don't plan to release a..." left to go.
Anyone knows what those Solar Tesla pickups on the basses are? Some cheap junk that you need to replace or something that could sound good?
Tesla pickups are fine in my opinion. They're not made in the USA which explains the lower pricing, but they make a perfectly good product.
The new bass shape looks good but it has no feature to stand out from the thousands of other basses out there. At least stainless steel frets would be cool. The Ibanez costs not even half as much. Of course I have no idea how they compare quality wise.
How I wish that RGB would be available in the US.
Paul's face here
I ain't gonna lie, there's... nothing special about the basses as said before. Too many humbucker basses on the market.
...But if we eventually get a 5-string P/J. Fuuuuuck. Make a fr00t series bass with a P/J placement and go for an '80s throwback bass like the other bolt-on/fr00t guitars in the Solar lineup.
Honestly I'd go with the P/J combo but I'm partial to those tones.
Just yeah, not enough P/J love for me in the bass realm. Lots of humbuckers and J-J pickups, but no old-school PJ setups.
Bonus points if they go with the Spector reverse P/J, like that Ibanez.
Yeah, those basses aren’t making me smash the BIN button. There are so many super cool production basses out there now these will probably not sell as much as the guitars, I’d think. That said, it’s cool to see Ola coming out with a line of basses.
Not at all interested in the basses, the aesthetics of the body and headstock don't work as a bass for me. I am hoping he continues to experiment with different shapes and specs, because there is potential but currently I doubt they are going to pull many bassists outside of a Solar fanboy guitarist who wants a bass or someone who is sponsored.
I honestly really love the looks of the bass. I just think we need more J/J or P/J metal basses. Like a modernized Jackson Concert or ESP Surveyor.
LTD AP-4 / AP-5 in black is pretty metal. I have the AP-5 awesome feel, great sounds.
I didn't realize PJ was so popular, lol. The main Ibanez SR bass I have owned for years is PJ, and always kinda wished it were humbuckers, lol.
Not a fan of his basses. They lack imagination. Looks to me like he said "lets slap some bass picks ups in the bodies I already have and stretch the necks out".
Can't fault him too much for that, it's about as much thought as Strandberg put into thier basses.
For what it's worth, the "Slapping some bass pickups on a stretched guitar body" works in this case. Zero issues with the design.
If you want a P or J, buy a P or J.
How about some explorer and V -style basses in 4 and 5 strings? Don't see those too often...
