    Both look amazing! That black/red stain is awesome, inlays look awesome. Super awesome all round.

    All you folks on here make me want to attempt a build all the god-damn time!

    So finally it's ready...it needs a different set of strings, and a little more adjustment, but it sonuds and feels awesome

    Because it's still in test phase, and if i have to get rid of the strings, it's easier to put back them if they're longer.

    Thanks!
    BTW, I'm not an official luthier, It's just a hobby for me, and I wanted a non-stock 8 stringer too :)
    I would gladly make you one, but honestly, I don't want to stand in the line...there are too many luthiers out there these days, and is becoming unpopular, to be one of them...if you know what I mean... :)

    oh my god I love the combo of the amarant fretboard and blue finish, great job man, really impressive work. Congrats to your friend too.

    I thought graphtech’s acoustiphonic preamp only allowed 7 strings for their preamp, did you add another one for the last string ?
