Best 8 String EVER!
By: Stephen from Montebello, CA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is an amazing instrument! Fresh out of the box changed the tuning to Drop E and it plays like a dream!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
As a metal guitar player this thing plays amazing! I can shred on some string skipping and even 7 string sweeps without the neck being too bulky and I can also groove on the heavy strings with ease.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is amazingly smooth and the controls I honestly don't use very much. Only thing I'd change it take out the tone knob and just leave a single volume knob.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Nice high output with a full range. Picks up great all the way from the low E to the high E
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is incredible! I have friends that have Ibanez 8 strings but just the standard RG series black or white, mine looks a thousand times better!
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This guitar is well worth the money! If you're thinking about getting this guitar stop thinking and just get it NOW!
