RS Guitarworks SolarFlair Jr

This RS Guitarworks SolarFlair Jr has a Black Limba body & neck, rosewood fingerboard & aged nickel hardware. Light and resonant and powered by a Lindy Fralin hum-cancelling P-90 pickup.

The Solarflair series of guitars came about from additional notes about the building of the Bullets & Bones guitar for Joe Perry of Aerosmith. Joe wanted a guitar built like a Winchester rifle, that would looks like part of the gun’s receiver with all the engraving. We decided if we did a metal top it needed to be aluminum and inlayed into the top to have the look of the parts found on the famous rifles. This led to the original guitar called “The Admiral”. When Joe received the guitar he was speechless and put it right to use. What started out to be a one of a kind guitar turned out to be such a great guitar we decided to make it a model so the Solarflair series was born.

These guitars sound like nothing else and have a sound best described as”Powerful”. With their set neck construction, aluminum top, & Sustainmaster bridge combine to make a guitar that-while weighing less than most Les Pauls-sounds huge and fat, but still ring like a bell. The Solarflair comes in two versions: Standard and Artist original.

The Standard model has an aged aluminum top with an engraved RS logo and a pinstripe running around the edge. The Artist original series are each unique acid etched and numbered, with no two ever being the same.
