Solar Guitars is expanding its new CHOP SHOP production of guitars finished and assembled at the company’s main facility in Spain. The 2nd release is aptly name “PYRO” since the finish is created by the ancient art of torching hardwood (Shou Sugi Ban) to achieve greater strength and stunning visual effects from the wood grain. The process is extensive; the body and headstock are meticulously burned by hand, then the logo is applied with actual fire heated brand stamp. After the burning phase, the body and headstock are sanded clean and poly sealer coats are applied. Once dry, assembly commences with the roasted maple 3-piece neck fitted with Solar locking tuners, Floyd Rose installation, pickups, electronics wiring and copper shielding, strings strung up and final set-up by our experienced luthiers to be ready for top level professional stage or studio. MCAS Custom fitted ABS molded TSA flight-ready case is included along with a Certificate of Authenticity hand signed by Ola and the luthier that assembled each guitar.
