BRAND NEW!

Crafted in the USA, Shelton Electric Instruments are a tribute to the craftsmanship of iconic vintage guitars. Truly premium instruments, these guitars display bold styling and careful attention to the things that matter most to guitar players. Not another clone brand, Shelton Electric Instruments offer a look, feel, and tone you just can’t get from other guitars. 

The alternative offset! The Solar-Sonic offers up a wild reverse shape that is sure to grab attention.  Its fighter jet inspired lines provide the perfect platform to showcase its unique sonic signature. Shake off the traditional with the Solar-Sonic!

The Solar-Sonic is a sleek new design for forward looking players. The neck is our comfortable Tailored C and sports a 9.5” radius maple fingerboard with nicely detailed medium frets. A duo of Porter Vintage JM pickups are the heart of the guitar. We hook the pickups to an Emerson Custom 5 way harness for a variety of tones. A Mastery M1 bridge and MV vibrato mean trouble free performance while Gotoh staggered vintage tuners, and a Tusq XL nut make for rock solid tuning. The finish is Pelham Blue nitrocellulose lacquer and is complimented by a Lucite pickguard. This Solar-Sonic has been Artifact Aged to resemble a used but well loved instrument. It comes in a Deluxe G&G hardshell case.

The Solar-Sonic makes a brave statement. Made for a bold player looking for tone to match.

What customers say about their Shelton Electric Instruments:

“From the moment I touched the instrument I liked it, but from the moment I played it, it was love over the top.”

“I love testing electric guitars for sustain and clarity when played acoustically. This passed all the tests, up, down and across the neck. But plug this in and real magic begins. The switch and the controls permit dialing in a wide range of tones with my little finger.”

“Most impressive is the touch sensitivity of the guitar. Great to play and great to play with. A thousand happinesses to you, like those you brought to me.”

“I am completely satisfied - even my wife mentioned how good it sounded!”

“The best JM I’ve ever picked up.”

“The guitar is badass.”
