    The fretboard logo kicks ass, imho.
    Really can't make my mind between the S2.6W and the A1.6BDA... So classy and inspiring guitars...!! :)

    People, I'm looking a 7 strings axe, I have some candidates, one of them is Solar S1.7pb, another one is looking for a used prestige around the same price ( budget 1200 aprox ), I have found a RGD3127 although the bridge is different from Solar ( fixed bridge vs floyd) Solar has SS,luminlays, locking tuners... Ibanez has... great neck feeling and "made in japan". What do you think about ibanez prestige vs solar ?, Quality construction.., necks ?, feel.. ? made in japan vs indonesian..
    Thks.

    I'm gonna assume the Solar active pickups are Blackouts copies until further notice.

    The color-keyed inlay is a really nice touch!

    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!
