Washburn PXSOLAR6 USA Ola Englund Guitar in Carbon Black
The PXSOLAR6 is part of the top range Ola Englund signature guitars to come from Washburn's USA Custom Shop. This guitar is everything you need as a modern rock guitarist; hot humbuckers, beautiful sleek design, amazing feel and impeccable build quality. For any style of hard rock or metal you can not go wrong with this guitar in your collection.
This guitar has a jet black design with a shape that feels amazing in the hands. With an alder body that has a sharp carved top, double cutaway design and an amazingly thin maple neck topped with black ebony for the fingerboard. All of this comes together to make a guitar that feels and sounds amazing with enough punch to kick through any mix. What really makes this design so spectacular is the all access cutaway on the back so you get access to the highest frets at all times.
Its In The Small Things
Nothing has been left to chance with this guitar. From the bridge to the tuners everything on this guitar has been tested for hours upon hours until Washburn and Ola were pleased that this was the best guitar it could be. That is why you have such great hardware like a hipshot fixed bridge, graphite nut and Grover locking tuners in a matching black finish.
Made In The USA
When it comes to high end guitars like this nothing will make more of a difference than the skill of the luthiers making each and ever part of this guitar. In Washburn's USA Custom Shop they have some of the best trained luthiers not only making the guitar but also designing them. That means that no matter what guitar you get from their factory it will be something truly special that will last you for years to come.
Ola's Pickups of Choice
One of the things that Ola needs out of his guitars is versatility. Without it he won't be able to take it in between all of his different gigs and sessions without having to change out some hardware. That is why this guitar comes with the industry standard Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 and a SH-14 Custom 5. The '59 is a light moderate output pickup that works beautifully for warm cleans and rounded solos. The Custom 5 however is much hotter and although it works great for high gain all out metal it has a similar tone to the '59.
Here's what Washburn say about the PXSOLAR6
The PX-Solar Deluxe Series is the signature line of swedish guitarist and producer Ola Englund (The Haunted, Feared, former Six Feet Under...). PX-Solar feature full access neck joints, alder bodies and ebony fingerboards. Coupled with their stealth looks and distinctive binding, the PX-Solar guitars are very solid, precise and professional instruments that will satisfy any metal player.
"The Solar line of guitars have everything I want out of a guitar, the tone, the feel, the looks. Everything just falls into place when I have one in my lap. Washburn gave me free hands to design whatever I wanted, no questions asked, and the outcome is a dream come true."
