Solar Guitars has just introduced a new premium Type A1.8D LTD limited edition 8 string electric guitar supporting an alder body, maple neck, & ebony fingerboard. It features a distinctive cutaway scoop along with distressed looks. You will find signs of wood streaks, paint buildups, dings, discoloration, & hardware finish imperfections on this guitar. All of these imperfections are willfully simulated to give this guitar a unique look. In terms of electronics, the latest 8 string Solar guitars Type A1.8D LTD equips Solar Duncan pickups that offer a full spectrum of tonal options.
The Type A1.8D LTD is not the only guitar from the company to feature aged wood finish. Recently we covered the E1.6D LTD model that also features the same kind of finish.
Thanks to the Evertune F-Type constant-tension bridge, that keeps the new A1.8D LTD in tune despite changes in tension. So you don’t have to worry about the guitar going out of tune every time you do a hard solo bend.
The 8 string A1.8D LTD features a set-thru neck joint design. This design boasts several advantages such as:
- Better sustain
- Brighter tone
- Better wood stability
- Easy access to the higher register frets
Since the set-thru neck design lacks a hard heel and bolt plate, it allows for comfortable access to the higher scales for soloing purposes.
Electronics & Pickups
For maximum clarity and sustain, the new Type A1.8D LTD 8 string limited edition electric guitar equips Duncan Solar pickups on the neck and bridge. With the help of a 5-way blade, you can switch between those pickups to get five different sound possibilities. Additionally, you can further tweak the audio signal via the volume or control knob.
