Amazing feel and sound - somewhat high tension on the strings
8stringnewbie 04.03.2021
I'm in a band where we tune down from standard e4 to b3, and I wanted an extra string over and under for extended range. A tremolo was a must, and because of this, few options are out there for 8-string guitars without getting pricey.

The guitar is awesome. With a slender neck and very smooth fretboard (comfortably wide for the hand), and low action on the strings - it is very easy to play, almost addicting.

The frets are high and the neck is long, but surprisingly none of that is any big issue, although you can feel the extra stretch on your fingers close to the nut (depending the chords).

I decided to return the guitar because of the tension on the strings. The high e-string broke while doing bending. The scale's about 28 inches long which may be an inch too much. One way to resolve this could be tuning lower than standard tuning, but this will sacrifice pitch.

Another minor issue was the body cutaway on the lower side of the neck - the horn of the body curves upwards and the space slightly locks your hand when you play on the highest frets.

Great guitar, great service
True LUFS 30.01.2022
Just received my new 8 string two days ago. The guitar is absolutely a quality instrument and sounds great. I haven't been able to put it down. I played 7 string guitars for thirty years and switched to 8 strings last year.
This is my first order from Thomann. I live in Canada and was hesitant about shipping a guitar here. I have another one on order from a local company and I've been waiting 3 months. The people at Thomann were very helpful and professional. My guitar arrived in about 4 days. Thomann will be my "go to" music store from now on!!

Très bonne 8 cordes
Anonymous 18.05.2015
J'ai eu envie de passer sur 8 cordes, et le changement entre 6 et 8 n'a pas été difficile du tout, contrairement à ce que j'aurais pu penser. Le manche est très fin, ce qui est très pratique pour le shred par exemple. Le floyd rose tient l'accord (enfin il ne faut pas s'attendre à des folies non plus, on ne peut pas faire autant d'effets que sur un floyd rose 6 cordes). Le seul petit bémol, ce sont les micros: ils sonnent un peu brouillon (peut être à cause de mon ampli entrée de gamme) comparé à mes 6 cordes, mais je les ai changés contre des EMG 808X et c'est un peu plus clair. En bref, une excellente bonne guitare pour un prix "modeste".

Sehr Hübsche Gitarre
Airwreck 01.12.2018
Ich benutze die Gitarre nur für mich Privat und Spiele ab und zu vor Family and Friends.

Da es meine erste 8-Saiter ist, wusste ich nicht genau was auf mich zu kommt, aber am Ende des Tages bin ich doch vollkommen überzeugt von dieser Gitarre.
Sound: Der Sound gefällt mir persönlich sehr gut, vorallem die Mitten und Höhen kommen sehr gut raus. Aber auch die Tiefen Saiten klingen gut, wobei da etwas mehr "Wumms" hinter sein könnte.

Das Äußerliche hat mich zu 100% überzeugt, sie ist eine echt wunderschöne Gitarre.

Mit der Whammy Bar komm ich noch nicht ganz zurecht, hatte aber auch noch nie mit Whammy zuvor gespielt, aber bisherige Erfahrung ist doch eher Positiv.

Ich kann diese Gitarre wärmstens empfehlen für alle die eine 8-Saiter mit Whammy haben möchten.
