    Its an LTD H-308 :scream:
    My first 8 string too and so far I love this thing :shred:
    Traded a 1 head 8 space rack road case to a friend for it too :cool:
    This thing plays good. I still need to get it set up though. I have it strung with 10-52 for E-E then A 64 for the low b and an 80 for the low F# Might change the string guages to a 70 on the low b (Thats what I use for the low b on my 7) and an 84 for the F# though.
     
    Philligan, Rook and espman like this.

    Nice trade! Welcome to the land of ERGs, you won't be going back any time soon!

    Thanks! So far i'm loving it. Honestly my 6 string necks feel alien to me but that could just be because I haven't played them since I got the 8 :lol:

    Is this standard scale? If so I'd love to hear clips!

    Get used to it, it only gets worse :lol:

    It is :yesway:

    For an in-store demo, this guy gets some decent tones with the standard scale. I can only imagine it would get better with a setup and some serious EQing.
