Hi all, I recently bought a Custom Shop Fender Strat that I really love but I always get frustrated because of the lack of 2 extra strings. I really enjoy the strat sound but I'd like to have 2 extra strings, it s just better for me, I enjoy extended range guitars. I already have a Skervesen 8 strings with BKP Juggernauts (H-H) for extreme styles, and a Carvin DC8 strings (H-H) for nice rock styles and more than this. I mainly play rock/jazz/blues music, and I like an 8 strings to play a lot of different styles of music, and add the extra strings for basses, and complex chords. I don't play a lot of djent or metal music mainly... I could build a Kiesel DC 8 strings (neck through body construction), with the option : -3 single coils. -Ash body -either flamed maple neck with flamed maple fretboard or 5piece black limba neck with 2 maple stripes - depending on the finish: flamed maple top (they are gorgeous!) or no top. - Sparkle gold finish, nightburst finish, or purple cali burst finish... not decided yet. I may approach the strat sound I really like, but I need your advices. I guess the 8th string will be muddy in the neck position while playing my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe tube amp, but it doesn't really matter if in other positions the sound is clear. I wonder if I should take these 3 single coils, I really hope they can produce the sound I'm looking for. Thank's for your advices!
