After years of playing electric guitar and mostly metal I have found my tastes mellowing and enjoying the sound of nylon strings! I'm looking at trying an 8 string classical guitar and transitioning my jazz noodlings to acoustic. Either the Ibanez G208CWC or the Ortega RCE159-8. I'm not interested in tuning it down to drop E so I'm not concerned with how it sounds at super low tunings. I would be tuning, low to high, B E A D G B E A and probably experimenting with some open tunings. Do any of you guys own either of these guitars? Nut width is pretty much identical but I'd likely go for the one with the flatter neck profile. The Ortega does have on-board electronics so for me that is a plus but not a deal breaker for the Ibanez. Unfortunately I can't try one out locally as no one stocks them ...and a few local stores were convinced you can't buy 8 string classical guitars without having one custom made Thanks!
