    I went to Solar's site right now just to check out their stuff only to see they have two new models. The top one is flamed walnut and costs $777?

    Love the walnut one !
    A bit hard to pick one as you never know what will come up next week or tomorrow It’s a good selling strategy...or not idk
    You always wonder til which point a finish will be stretched ( not saying on a bad tone)
    New shape for 2020 maybe ? A star-like shape would be dope

    Agree. Although I don't mind the bat-solar, the Batman delete looks a little better. Now make an 8 with a Floyd ola (lol)

    Yeah i really like the looks of that one much much better than the ones with the bevels.

    EDIT just checked it out and it doesn't have stainless frets :(

    Man this neon pink is awesome! Sadly I'm really only in the market for trems or an evertune. I'm sure it will sell well though.

    Don’t encourage Ola with comments about that pink sixxer, guys. Media blackout until we get a pink 7 with trem or a pink 8!

    I’m about to pull the trigger on the pink one but i’d prefer a floyd one
    Will it ever been released ? No one knows
    The yellow one is now in floyd so....
    That’s the main problem with releasing guitar every week ...you wanna wait...all the time !!

    Don't you just unscrew the locking tuner from bottom and the clamp part moves out of the way to put string in hole? You got locking tuners, right?

    I don't know. I've never owned a Solar, but every locking tuner I've ever saw or owned it just was a pole that went up and down in the middle to clamp the string with. Maybe try unscrewing it all the way while pushin the pole down?

    I have a set of Solar locking tuners on my 1.7PB and I don't understand what your problem is either.

    You just unscrew the thumb wheel, feed the string through the post and tighten the thumb wheel back down again. It's not hard.
