So they finally did it – a Solar bass. The smart move here is letting the brand name gather a good / strong following before introducing variations to the fold.
Some stuff: 1) The body is sungkai. The Malays / Indonesians would know it as jati. English – it’s teak & something more common in the furniture industry. Teak is a hard, heavy wood & it’s no surprise they use it for bass. 2) The pickups are TESLA so if you still think these are second-rated, they are actually good stuff, just not commonly used by the big brand names in guitars & basses. 3) It does not come with a bag. Bummer. Currently, it’s only offered in this A (bolt-on) series with a 5-string variation.
