Outstanding!
31.12.2015
Let me just start by saying that, this guitar needs a tweak coming straight out of the box. The action was a little off but other than that very playable straight away. For the price the product you get is amazing, it feels like a premium bit of kit and the finish is gorgeous. The only thing is that the pickups lack a little in tonal variety but as with most guitars in the price range a pick up change is recommended. Very fun to play and better than the equivalent price ibanez by a mile! A string change is a must as the strings it comes standard with are way, way too light for the instrument even in standard tuning. I would recommend ernie ball skinny tops heavy bottom for the best mix between sustain and playability. If your just starting out in the 8 string world it makes an absolutely brilliant first 8 string, if you are experienced in extended guitars it would make a brilliant addition to your collection. The only issue I have had is that it's very hard to find a hard case for this guitar, Jackson do a softer padded gig bag, but no flight/ hard case

A great guitar for its price
14.12.2015
I bought this guitar to get started in the extended range world. I did not want to spend a lot of money, but I wanted to get an instrument serious enough so it was not just a nice ornament in my room.

I think my choice could not have been more accurate. It is an instrument that offers enough for the low price it has, from the finish (although the lid is only a veneer is amazing how beautiful it is). Let us turn to the analysis in depth.

-Characteristics-

We find an 8-string guitar with a 26.5 "scale, basswood body and maple mast (one piece) (except for the joining of the blade with the mast). Out of the ordinary, very used in super-strato, and with very good and proven results.
The body has a thickness of 3.5 cm at the ends (by the center reaches 4 cm, should not forget that it is an arch-top), which gives it a lightness that I was not expecting anything. It does not become like an Ibanez S, but it is not the thickness of an RG, for example.

The mast is impressively thin for the amount of strings it has to support, and resonates powerfully. Mounts 24 jumbo frets of good height, and medium width.
Runs the next caliber 0.9, 0.11, 0.16, 0.26, 0.36, 0.46, 0.52, 0.65 tuned in EBGDAEBF #, from highest to lowest.

6/10

-Sound

This is where I had more doubts. A bad piece of furniture can be terrible and make the strings thicker sound lifeless, silent and without definition, and bad pills can increase even more.

This is not the case: the furniture is incredible. The strings vibrate in solidarity with the mast, which when made entirely of maple, offers the guitar a spectacular brightness, rare in this range, and also sufficient and very defined bass.

When plugging in we realize that the pickups have not been chosen by chance: They have a very controlled and compressed bass, especially necessary in the case of the two thicker strings, but they are cold.

They lack some roundness. They are rich in harmonics and very defined. The truth is that for this price little you can ask for more. The seventh string sounds killer, with bite, to hell, as few guitars have heard, and that is only a 0.52. This is contributed by the 26.5 "scale.

The last rope is recommended to change, because it is excessively loose. I recommend changing it for at least 0.74 or 0.80

7/10

-Building

We have a bolt-on neck guitar. The board is done correctly, not like other guitars of this range that I have found.

The tablets, mounted directly on the wood, have the width of an active one, in case someone wants to substitute for a set of this type.

The soul, despite the width of the mast, is simple, and together with the hardness of the hard rock maple, do not bend the mast before the incredible tension of the 8 strings.
The set feels solid, massive and with a great sustain, despite not having reinforcements of titanium as superior ranges.

7/10

-Touch

The feel is quite good, thanks to the 12 "to 16" composite radio mast and frets, although the strings feel somewhat strained by the somewhat larger scale.

6/10

In summary:

I come from an Ibanez Rg Premium, which already has excellent value for money, but this guitar is excelsa in that aspect. If they told me without knowing it costing around 600-700¤ I would believe it without problems. This guitar is the perfect proof that you do not need to invest a large sum of money. I totally recommend it.
