The Solberg ´Þor´

The þor (Thor)   Now Sold (POA) Price ~£3900

Again I have tried to accentuate the wood on this guitar both in looks but also in tone through the type of pick ups installed. This is a poplar body with spalted beech top and Double black pearl bindings . Grade AAA flame maple boat neck with 10′-16′ compound radius, Ebony fret board and the tuners are Sperzel original tuners.

It features a SUPER VEE MAVERICK floating tremolo and a mac vee mag lok to maintain tuning during bends and use of the tremolo.

The pick ups are custom wound by Jaime at the Creamery Manchester, neck and middle pick ups are ‘Skinny scooped mids’ and the bridge pick up is a 64 wound tele bridge. These give the guitar a woody and hollow tone similar to fenders ‘big dipper’ custom shop pickups.  It has schaller strap locks and rosewood control knobs. Pick up configuration is as a stratocaster. It has a amazing feel and sound listen to it under the music tab.
