Here is our brother in Arms/Djent Keith Merrow with his new SIgnature 7 String (drool, want one and one of Ola's) and Ola actually plays a SOLO which is something I rarely see him do.

Not sure if this is the place to ask but I keep seeing this name, Ola Englund being written a lot.. who exactly is he ??? I know I could search him up but it's more interesting to have a conversation !! laugh.gif

Keith's "predator" inlay looks awesome !! And those guitars look really thin.

Ola Englund is the guitarist for Feared and Six Feet Under. He is a very popular "youtube" guitarist as well. I want to like him but just generally don't like his tone or his music, I seem to be the only one laugh.gif

I think Keith Merrow is much better in pretty much all respects though, he has some killer riffs and his tone is a bit more unique to my ears.

Although, I suggest watching Ola Englunds studio walkthrough, quite cool.

Ola is basically a Metal Guitar Player from Sweden. Has a spiff youtube channel and does lots of gear tests and recording advice vids. Boot strapped himself form nothing to 10 million views on YT and ended up in SFU and with his own line of 7 String Guitars. Well played Ola!

Keith is basically Metal Guitar Player from the U.S. Midlands. Again spiff youtube channel and also now has his own line of 7 string guitars made by the same folks as Ola (Strictly 7 Guitars).

Strictly 7 is, well, a 7 String guitar boutique custom shop so to speak. They make other types but they do 7's the way Ibanez used. Which is to say, "The Right Way".

Here is an Ola vid of him making "profiles" on his Axe FX


Here is a kieth vid of his studio walk through
