"Fantastic 8-string"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This will easily be one of the top guitars in my collection for years. I play Bass and Guitar, with this I can get a lot of the Bass I need and rythm, lead guitar also.
The EMG pickups do a fantastic job, very hot and conver the full range of all 8 strings very well
Other than the 8 strings and the Active EMG pickups, not really much additional. Does have locking nut, but not really needed without a tremelo bridge. Comes with the really nice RG case.
Ease of Use
It is best to go from a 7-string to the 8-string. I was able to take advantage of the 8th string within a few minutes. Plays very smooth.
I was very impressed with the quality. I have not held a Japanese made instrument in years. The quality is better than a lot of the American made instruments. It came out of the box setup and ready to play (other than tuning).
For the great quality and the fact there are only two companies that are mass producing 8-strings, it is a very good value. I have guitars I have paid twice as much for that are no where near the quality.
The Wow Factor
Must have for the serious guitarist.
