Your 8-String Melody Machine

With eight strings stretching over 24 frets, the ESP LTD Javier Reyes JR608QM electric guitar is the perfect instrument for the guitarist with eager fingers. A pair of DiMarzio JR-CTM humbuckers housed in a swamp ash body project a clear and warm signal, and a speedy five-piece walnut/maple/paduak neck in a comfy Thin U shape boasts a silky smooth ebony fingerboard and a snug fit for a hand that loves swift melodic sweeps and runs. This axe's neck-through-body design keeps your sound reverberating as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. Pick up this ESP, and you'll be on your way to the extended-range mastery of prog metal guitarist Javier Reyes.

Javier Reyes of Animals As Leaders shows off his signature LTD JR-608:


Eight Strings at your Fingertips

There is plenty of room for exploration when you shoulder an 8-string axe. Javier Reyes' playing style shows how the possibilities are nearly endless. After you get your fingers used to the standard tuning -- E, B, G, D, A, E, B, E -- be sure to experiment around with different tunings to see how much your output can stand out from the crowd.

Swamp Ash Body

Swamp ash is a great tonewood for electric guitars, especially if you're a lead player. It yields an even balance of lows and highs, with a slightly scooped midrange. This guitar's asymmetrical contour is easy on the eyes, and a deep cutaway lets your hand hit those higher notes comfortably.

Pair of DiMarzio JR-CTM Humbuckers

No matter where you pay, each note will sound clear, warm, and consistent. The two DiMarzio JR-CTM humbuckers serve each string solid sonic justice by forging a tone that cannot be ignored. Be sure to play around with this axe's five-setting pickup selector switch as well as the coil splitting switch at the bottom to hear the dynamic reach these humbuckers have to offer.

Five-Piece Walnut/Maple/Paduak Neck

A slightly wider neck doesn't have to sacrifice on comfort at all. This appendage's Thin U contour fits in your hand like a glove. All 24 frets boast a tight and comfortable action, and a smooth ebony fingerboard lets your fingers travel effortless up and down. The neck through body design offers a sturdy feel and a smooth transfer of sound.

"Excellent 8-string with great looks"
Overall: Bought the JR-608 and it has been a showstopper. Looks: Guitar body has an excellent finish without any noticeable blemishes. The “blue” sunburst pattern comes across more as a grey sunburst that really pops with the gold tuning heads and volume knobs. I have received lots of comments on FB on how cool the guitar looks. Guitar was constructed well without any noticeable issues with fret buzzing, finish, or pickups. Sound- I play this plugged into a Boss Gt-100 and the guitar has been able to perform in a variety of playstyles. To me, it is better suited for cleaner tones, fingerstyle, and jazz. It has excellent sustain. As typical with 8 strings, the bottom two strings can muddy the sound if they are accidentally hit while playing on the upper 6 strings. As for people looking to play metal, I found the tone to be best with songs that utilize more of the 7th B string rather than the 8th F# string. The guitar can djent, but you have to be really careful with your tone settings because the bottom 8th string can sound muddy if your tone settings arent adequate. Overall, for my first 8 string, this has been a quality purchase that I have not regretted. The playability of the guitar makes it very easy to transition to 8 strings. This guitar is for people who want to do everything that their six string can, but add extra warmth and range, ability to djent, and stellar looks to their lineup.
Style of Music: Varied - more blues and jazz.
