    Hello ERG fans and players! :)

    I want to share with you my submission for the Kiesel Guitars Solo Contest, that I did with my 8-string Jackson, equipped with Kahler tremolo:

    Enjoy :)

    The tone and phrasing reminded me of Polyphia, nice stuff. Also, that Jackson is really nice, I'm guessing it's a custom?

    Thanks! :) Actually the name Polyphia means nothing to me, but I will check now.
    The Jackson is JS32-8Q with a Kahler 2218 tremolo, and the Moon Phase inlays are additionally done by my own design. Currently a bulgarian luthier is doing a signature model for me and when it's ready on 2 weeks, I will present it here - it's an interesting guitar ;)

    Ya, I'd love to see your sig! I play 8s with terms, too, so I'm interested to see what you've come up with.

    I like that you took a melodic approach to the solo- good luck!

    Thank you! It was about time to oppose the mindless shred wars. I dig your signature, btw :)


    What trems do you use on 8's?

    Great melody! Not what I was expecting at all from a "Solo" competition. :)
