Solar Guitars - the brand created by world renown guitarist, artist and online personality Ola Englund is excited to add 2 new models to the line, which feature newly designed High Output Duncan Solar Pickups.
The Duncan Solar + (plus) set is a newly designed high output set developed with Alnico VIII magnets (this is the most powerful Alnico magnet available). Solar Plus pickups sound tight, compressed and noticeably louder than our standard set. Into a high gain amplifier or modeler these pickups will feel almost as though a boost has been engaged. Sizes, cosmetics, wiring and installation is the same as in our standard pickup sets.
