Players looking for an 8-string should look no further. The Rob Scallon C-8 is a multiscale 8-string beast with a fresh feature set, tone and playability that will meet and exceed expectations! There is nothing ordinary about Rob Scallon – When he isn’t djenting his audiences’ faces off, he designed 3 new guitars to flip the script and let the audience djent his face off. Uniquely and innovatively designed, the new Rob Scallon signature models are available in 6,7, or 8 string options, which allow drop-tuned djenters and traditional players of any persuasion to indulge in a gorgeously crafted, dark-roasted creation.
The highest string retains a traditional 25.5” scale on all models, a familiar feel to any 6-string player. The 7 & 8 string models ease into a multiscale, but only on the lowest strings- keeping tension tight for players who like the lowest of the low ends (as Rob does with a Drop A preference). All while being extremely comfortable for anyone’s hands to hit every note with precision & ease.
Equipped with brand-spanking new Rob Scallon Signature pickups, designed by the man himself, humbucking and single-coil tones are readily available at the push-pull of your tone knob, providing guitar tones as warm and reliable as your morning Cup o’ Joe Rob.
A swamp ash body, neck thru construction, mahogany 3-pc carbon fiber reinforced “C” shape neck, Hipshot hardtail bridge and a GraphTech XL Black Tusq nut provides the perfect, rock-solid foundation. The Hipshot Grip-lock tuners, 24 Jumbo frets adorned upon an ebony fretboard, and a buttery smooth satin finish is the sugar on top. Fill up your cup with the new Rob Scallon Signature models, its his “favorite guitar….ever”.
