OLA ENGLUND Introduces New 8-String Washburn Solar 180

As is the inevitable conclusion when one has a successful line of signature guitars, you continue adding to the line as you get more requests for certain features. Ola Englund‘s Solar series has been a smash hit for Washburn, and he has no fewer than 14 different versions of it for sale.


Now he’s releasing an 8 string model, the Solar 180, and he’s released an accompanying video with some sound samples and a description. Watch it in 4k ultra HD for maximum Swede.

If you enjoy the music you hear in the video, be sure to head over and listen to more Feared.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
