Currently, the most affordable guitar in the Solar Guitar range is the AB2.6GM, which comes in at $529.  Whereas, the S by Solar models start at a mere $219.

Englund, reflecting on the new brand, stated, “With everything we have learned at Solar Guitars, we knew we could create an opportunity for lower-priced guitars that young people and beginners would appreciate, with the goal to put the right tools in your hands from day one.”
