    Been a while since I've played an 8-string but have always wanted one. I wanted a MIJ one but I didn't want to spend much money and I figured that I have enough MIJ 7s so I opted for one of these. From Musician's Friend. :yesway:

    I like the feel of the neck but the action is tad bit high for my tastes but I got used to it in no time. Sounds alright, I'm enjoying it. :yesway:

    Nice, Shawn! Those are so slick and clean! Yet to get my first 8 but will probably be the exact same axe. Congrats and enjoy! :)

    Thanks guys. Yeah, pretty strange that it came in an ESP box. I have to get a hardshell case for it next. Guitar plays nice and sounds great. I adjusted the action a little so it plays better now. I highly recommend one of these to anybody looking for an affordable 8-string. :yesway:
