    He's also said he's not a fan of multiscale. He has a Skervesen multiscale Swan and I remember him saying he likes the concept of multiscale but in practice he didn't feel the benefits. I could be misremembering, but the overall vibe from the vid was "this is a cool guitar, but its not one of my favourites, and the multiscale makes it harder swapping between guitars".

    Star? That would be nice. Pointy star would be godly. Get Sammy Duet on board! :D

    Just spied this on their website too...

    A Star would be cool, but knowing Ola is such a Dime lover, my money would be on a hybrid Type E and Type V, symmetrical not offset. Leaning towards a Dean Stealth.

    I'm actually not a huge fan of their T-shape style. It's too ''metal'' for me which is a weird statement.

    Iirc he said that the stealth shape wont happen as he respects too much dimebag’s legacy
    Still...it would sell ;)

    Well, not a big fan of the color imho, looks better than the antique one, but a black finish would have been 100 times better imho. I liked this image better, ymmv.

    Sadly it's 25.5". Hopefully they can make a longer scaled one in the future. I'm not a fan of red, but it does look pretty cool here with the pickguard.

    I love that red, personally. I'm undecided whether that T-shape is for me. I have a Tele fetish so I don't hate it but I'm not sure if I can picture myself with a 'metal' T-style guitar for some reason.

    Don't really like it. I find that horn visually atrocious.

    I absolutely love the tele shape, and pretty much all the SOLAR colours. Much heart eyes. I can't afford to just randomly buy one, unfortunately, but at least some kind of SOALR is on my list if/when I ever get something new.
