Perfect starting point for those interested in 8 string guitars

C.J.Smith, 05.06.2018
The Harley Benton R-458 is, simply put, a very good guitar, not just for the price, but in general. If you're looking to try an 8, but don't want to invest a large amount of money, then look no further. This guitar comes highly recommended, and is suited to all genres of music from the heaviest of metal, to the smoothest of jazz.

Pros:
- Well Constructed
- Surprisingly lightweight (lighter than my Epiphone Les Paul)
- Arrived nicely set up, and can easily be adjusted to personal preference
- Very Affordable!

Neutral:
- Pickups are nothing special, but that's to be expected on a guitar in this price range. They're useable.
- Minor blemishes in the finish. These don't bother me, and are purely aesthetic.
- Hardware is functional, but feels a little cheap.

Cons
- The scale length is only 26.5 inches. Tuning down to f# (and lower) is doable, but requires a thicker string than I would like to keep tension. A scale length of at least 27 inches would be ideal.

good starting point for more adventurous players

Paganini, 10.04.2018
This is my first experience with the 8 string, so I can't compare it to others, but then again, at this price point, there are no others, so you can't really judge it too hard...
Cons: frets are unpolished. Which is something that's really disappointing at any price point, as it interferes with your playing. Minor cosmetic flaws are present in form of bad paint job around the screws that hold the neck, but as it is on the back of the guitar, it will remain unnoticed pretty much all the time..
Pros: holds tuning very well, overall quality of everything seems to be far better then expected at this price range.
Looks very nice, especially since there aren't many color variations on the (cheap) 8 string guitars,
Pickups are not great, but not bad either. For my ears they sound great for the bass register, but lack at higher notes. Clean it can sound very good. Distortion is not my cup of tea on this one, but then again, that's just me.
It can be a great instrument if you put a little bit of work in polishing the frets.
