There are two models available – the versatile KANTO, and the single cutaway, straight ahead SOLA. Both are modern designs taking classic ideas and making them more comfortable and playable.
Your guitar can be built with a number of options, including body woods, fingerboard types, bridges, pickups and wiring options.
Get in touch to find out about ordering your Sola or Kanto.
Sola is a no nonsense machine crafted to help you get straight to the job at hand – making music. Whether you rock, twang or swing your way to musical stardom, Sola is a versatile way to get there.
With a comfortable, single cutaway body, 24 3/4″ scale and a simple to use six-a-side headstock and hardtail bridge, Sola is ready for you.
Sola comes equipped with one or two Sunbear pickups, hand wound in the UK to your specifications. Gotoh or Grainger hardware will keep things solid and in tune, while the stainless steel frets promise to never wear out.
Standard features include a solid colour body top, top and back comfort cutaways, upper fret access bevel, matching headstock and an easy-access output jack. Choose from a Gotoh wraparound bridge or Grainger hardtail for impeccable tuning and great sustain.
Sola comes in two versions: single pickup or dual pickup.
