Novo Nucleus Solus F2 | Cat's Eye Burst - Black Pickguard
Fralin High Output Tele & P-90 (Custom 15% Underwind) Pickups - Compensated Brass Saddles - German Carve
We are thrilled and immensely proud of the relationship between Peach and Novo. Our fearless leader, John, has been a devoted customer of the brand for years, amassing a significant collection of these guitars due to his genuine passion for them. For the previous few years, Novo handled all sales directly, but from 2023 we were delighted to announce that Peach would be stocking and selling these exquisite instruments exclusively in the UK. Our entire staff loves the perfect combination of retro-cool aesthetics, outstanding reliability, and innovative features that Novo guitars embody. They possess a timeless yet contemporary appearance that defies description but exudes undeniable coolness.
Moreover, once you hold one of these guitars in your hands, you'll be astounded by the unparalleled feel of the neck. It truly sets a new standard. We are thrilled to offer these guitars to customers without the need for a custom order or overwhelming choices. However, we urge you to act swiftly, as once a model is sold out, it may be unavailable for an extended period.
Novo have decided to refresh their lineup, introducing refinements and some tasty extras to their already exceptional instruments. The former Select series has evolved into the fresh Nucleus series. This series proudly features the continued presence of the Idris, Serus, Solus, and Voltur models, along with the exciting addition of the Miris model to enrich the lineup. Immerse yourself in cutting-edge hardware, inventive designs, fresh pickup configurations, and a diverse array of exquisite finishes. Today, we take great pleasure in introducing the Solus F2 model, a superb example of Novo's exciting Nucleus range.
The Novo Solus F2 boasts a body crafted from high-quality Swamp Ash, ensuring a resonant and lively tone. The guitar's neck is made from tempered maple, providing stability and a smooth playing experience. The fingerboard, constructed from rich rosewood, complements the overall aesthetics while contributing to the instrument's sonic characteristics.
The neck carve of the Solus F2 features a Chunky 'C' profile, offering players a comfortable grip that harks back to vintage designs. With a scale length of 25.5" and a fingerboard radius ranging from 9.5" to 14", the Solus F2 strikes a balance between classic playability and contemporary performance.
At the heart of the Novo Solus F2 lie the carefully selected pickups that define its sonic character. The bridge pickup, a Fralin High Output Tele, injects a dose of aggressiveness and power into the guitar's voice. Known for its mean and bold sound, the Fralin High Output Tele is wound with additional wire, delivering a darker tone that seamlessly blends with P-90s.
The neck pickup, a Fralin P-90 with a custom 15% underwind, brings vintage P-90 tones to life. Renowned for its versatility, clarity, and snarly midrange, the Fralin P-90 offers a sonic palette that suits various music styles. With clear lows, thick mids, and percussive highs, this pickup makes the Novo Solus F2 a versatile instrument capable of handling a wide range of genres.
The top of the guitar features a beautiful German carve, adding a touch of elegance to the instrument's aesthetic. The controls are rear-mounted, contributing to a clean and uncluttered front, while the pickguard adopts a new chopped design, providing a modern twist to the classic look.
The bridge of the Solus F2 is equipped with compensated brass saddles, ensuring precise intonation and optimal sustain. The use of Stringjoy 10-48 strings and a 1.65" nut width further enhances playability, catering to a variety of playing styles.
Whether in the studio, on stage, or on the road, the Novo Solus F2 and its dedicated gig bag stand as a testament to the brand's dedication to delivering an exceptional musical experience.
