I have been looking for a broker that offers the new Self Employed (also called Solo or Individual) Roth 401k account, which is a retirement account that allows self employed people to put aside as much as $45,000 per year pre-tax.

I don't know who offers these, but I think you are confused. A Solo Roth 401k is NOT funded with pre-tax dollars. It's a Roth, and so you fund it with after-tax dollars now, but then take out the proceeds on the other end tax-free, just like with a Roth IRA.

With a Solo 401k [note it is not a Roth], you can put in pre-tax dollars, and like other non-Roth IRA's and 401k's, you pay taxes on the money you withdraw at the other end.
