HAYWARD, CA—Johnson is excited to release the single-cutaway, dual-humbucker Solara Special, a great-sounding, great looking guitar  perfect for beginners or entry-level players.

With a solid basswood body and bolt-on maple neck with satin finish, the Solara Special begins with the essential ingredients for an entry-level rocker. The dual open-coil humbuckers deliver a fat, crunchy sound in either the neck or bridge position, and the single volume and tone controls give this guitar the casual simplicity of an instrument that can rock in any situation, and at any volume.

The deep treble side cutaway allows easy access to the upper frets, and  the nickel fretwire on the classic rosewood fretboard is finished with no rough edges for smooth, comfortable playing.

If you’re a player on a budget who has always wanted the sound of dual humbuckers on a single cutaway body, but were afraid that a low-priced guitar could never play well, the Solara Special is the guitar you’ve been waiting for. A true budget rocker, the Solara Special lists for $199.99 and is available in both gloss black and sunburst finishes.

Johnson, a division of The Music Link, is the maker of excellent sounding acoustic and electric guitars and basses. For more information on Johnson products, visit For a complete list of products available from The Music Link, visit
