Artist Solaris II Transparent Green Electric Guitar w/ Bullbucker Pickups

We've given the ever-popular Artist Solaris a bit of a refresh for the new year! With an eye-catching new transparent green finish, non-recessed knobs, a slight facelift to the right horn, and a new, improved tremolo cavity, the Solaris II is every bit the guitar you know and love, just better! 

The solid mahogany body features a high-grade flame maple cap and is finished in a glossy transparent green. The carved top and flame cap are an iconic pairing, and the double-cutaway provides superior neck access. The neck itself is also a single piece of ergonomically carved mahogany, set in, with a 43mm bone nut and 12” radius. The neck features 24 frets on an eco-rosewood fretboard across a 25” scale length, with a 3-aside headstock and locking tuners.

The first-class appointments don’t stop there, as the Solaris II also comes equipped with a tremolo capable of everything from wavering surfy trem, to huge bends, whilst maintaining tuning stability. We installed our black Artist Bullbucker pickups in the Solaris II, and although it may look basic with just a single volume and tone control, do not be deceived by its simplicity. The 5-way switch gives you the ability to split the coils of the Bullbckers in positions 2 and 4, allowing you a massive tonal range with plenty of options for any sound! 

We use premium wiring and 500K pots on the Solaris II, and with elegant dot inlays this stylish, top-spec instrument is a dream to play.
