    His post is stuck in the up poition inside the tuner but he dont' want to do anyhting to it to fix it or possibly mess it up more from what I gather. He's waiting for manufacturere reply I think.

    Not sure how that is possible unless he massively over-tightened the thumb wheels himself and stripped the threads.

    I can't say I've ever managed to do that myself.

    Jari signature when

    Guarantee there would be at least SOME sales compared to that Green 7 and Red V for the Morbid Angel guy who just up and abandoned Solar after only a few months

    It sounds like the pin that clamps the string down broke? Yeah, you need to show us pics.

    Or genuinely don't like them. I like them though - therefore I am not a liar, so I must know what I'm doing. But I don't know what I'm doing. So am I a liar? Oh fuck.

    It's not so much people lying as it is people just following every little trendwagon that the industry and YouTubers shove into their faces. Fishman Fluence is the new flavor, must mean EMG's are garbage now. :lol:

    I know people who have taken to the internet to slag off products to fit in with a crowd - and they havent even owned or tried them. Some of the EMG bashers are these too. Its unreal.

    Loosen the thumb wheel and try to get the post to drop with the end of a G string or something similar.

    Wow, I didn't know Solar Guitars are so popular here. Great news for me haha.

    I wanted to buy 6 to have along my xiphos 707, but I wanted something not-mahogany, with passive pickups, 25.5, or 26.5 inch scale (the guitar will be in D or C#), preferably reverse headstock, and a V would be a dream (I play in classical position so Vs are more ergonomic for me). Not a lot to choose from in my price range... So my first choice was RGDIX6 (the "skervesen for poor people" version, aka SBB;)), but then I stumbled upon this https://www.solar-guitars.com/product/v2-6-halloween-trans-blood-red-matte/. And... just wow. Almost everything is how I want it to be, only TOM bridge is a bit meh. And it looks insane, IMO.

    So I changed my pants, and now I have it in my basket and will be pulling trigger next week when I'll be able to pick this up from a courier.

    Anyway, I couln't find a lot about them. Didn't think about this place, so I am an idiot of course. But now I see this is a safe purchase. I love the approach to the customer. Can't wait to finally have it.

    If I like it I will try to exchange xiphos for V 7, but that thing is impossible to sell, even though it is a killer axe...

    Anyone notice this and can confirm? The description for the A2.7FR LN says it has a 25.5" scale. It seems like all the other seven's from Solar are 26.5".

    Saw this today, while browsing the site. Super bummed, as I was really into that guitar (assuming that it had 26.5" scale).

    That has to be a typo. The other green one has a 26.5'' scale.

    ironic considering how you were hyping pickups you'd never tried (BKPs and fluences) at one point.

    Same! Not that I can afford it right now anyway but I definitely wouldn't pick this one up if its 25.5", I'd just go for the hardtail.

    I would think so too. If it is I'm sure it'll be corrected. Maybe it just hasn't been pointed out to Solar yet? Not trashing the website by any means, but it's not like it's the best put together one there is.
