What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent - Includes Strandberg Headless Stand

Approaching this beautiful beast may seem like a challenge, but it's easier to tame than you'd think! The second I started playing this I was surprised by how immediately comfortable the neck profile was and even started fantasizing about some of my own guitars fitted with it! Playing 8 strings can be a bit disorienting, and though the visual profile of the true-temperament frets takes some adjusting, I found myself playing with ease in a matter of minutes. It was also sonically a joy to finally play an 8 string without the scale and intonation issues you'd typically see from compromising on either the high E or low F#. Those frets are also the only of their kind on this model, as they were custom ordered by the original owner (and boy were they right for requesting them). Call in today to talk to one of our specialists about bringing this incredible piece of art home before it gets snatched up!
