    Same. I'm just not a fan of inline headstock on LP shapes.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Me neither, but it is another cool option by Solar. The body shape is fantastic.

    At least in those pictures, it looks a little wonky to me. It's pear shaped but it looks like the cutout on the back lower bout should go out, and not in.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I'm not in the market but Ola totally ate Jackson's lunch on the shreddy single-cut thing. This is 10,000x better proportioned than the Monark

    As a Les Paul guy, I get the discomfort with the model... it's not what we're used to. But I will also say that pointed lower horn produced from the cutaway, the adjustment to body shape, and the jog near the rear strap button are all solid attempts at balancing the shape of the headstock.

    It's not a Les Paul - but I can step away from that and appreciate the design for what it is. And I still say, "well done, Ola."

    Your spell check is malfunctioning, might want to look into that.

    Unless you meant, "Fantastic-ally off due to weird proportions and a weirdly bulbuous lower section".

    Bit surprised to see the reception here so unanimously positive... I get that we all love Ola, but fuck.

    Nice to see they are 24.75" though.

    That shape would work better morphed into a neck through super tele. Right now it looks closer to B.C. Rich's "classic" seagull shape than an LP.



    No offense Ola. I figure if I were in your position I would appreciate honest feedback more than sycophants. Besides, my favorite guitar brands have all done worse shapes. When it comes to body shapes they can't all be winners.
