Christian Olde Wolbers / Arkaea

Belgium-born Christian Olde Wolbers began his stint with Fear Factory as bassist for nearly a decade before switching to guitar when the group reformed in 2003. His no-nonsense guitar work with Fear Factory, Arkaea and numerous guest appearances has assured him a rock-solid, heavy rep. The six-string and seven-string Christian Olde Wolbers Signature Dinky Arch Top models are actually based on a custom Soloist Arch Top, but are stripped down to the bare essentials for the no-nonsense, pedal-to-the-metal player.
