    NGD of the Solar kind.

    Got the chance to score one of these (barely) used at a great price (Thanks Drache). I was curious, so why not?
    Never liked the logo at the 12th fret, and that kept me from buying one for a long time. Too obvious. But this model has the least visible one.
    Also, never been a fan of that type of bridge (always preferred OFR), but I don't know. On this particular guitar, I dig it.

    For the price I paid (and this is on the lower end of Solar offerings) it feels like a solid guitar and it sounds pretty good overall. Love the look!
    Baked maple neck and fretboard feels great and that's the thing I like the most about it. C-shaped, thinner than my Charvel, but with enough chunk to it. Far from a Wizard, let's say. Really digging' it. Pickups sounds pretty decent as well... I need to play it more to have a final opinion on those.

    Never been great at reviews, but overall, I freakin' like this thing so far. Nothing out of this world, but a cool guitar nonetheless.

          Looks great. I'd love to get my hands on a solar at some point. It's strange seeing a bolt on solar, I'm so used to the set necks.

          Drache is a good dude, enjoy👍👍

              Man is correct. More H-P90 too, if I may.

              Enjoy it!

                Hell yeah!

                I love the neck on me E-type, (I think they use the same neck carve on all the guitars?) it fills your hand without being obtuse. A medium C shape. I really dig the pickups. A little more midrange than I expected them to have, but they definitely get some good separation in the chugging/palm muted stuff.

                  Great score! I remember when he put that up for sale - I don't like light colored fingerboards or else I would have jumped at it. If it's anything like my A2.6, you're going to love it long time.

                    Very nice.

                    Ola knows how to make a more appealing Ibanez than Ibanez does these days, apparently.

                      I'd go one step further and say Ibanez is dropping the ball, Ola is picking up and scoring.

                            Thanks guys. It's really a fun axe to play.

                              Ibanez dropped that ball about 10-15 years ago, really. Fully agreed in regards to Ola though. And I couldn't be more stoked that it's Ola, either, he's a good fuckin' dude that I'm happy to support.
