8-String Multi-Scale Guitar

8-String Multi-Scale Guitar
This is a beautiful guitar that pushes the bounds of extreme tuning. A typical 8 string would go eadgbe with the two lower strings being low b and f#. This, however, has the lowest string a full octave below the low a. In order to achieve this, the scale length was stretched to 28", and the headstock was designed to add as much string as possible. This added length will not increase the felt tension of the string, but helps to reduce pitch sensitivity when being played. The bridge was custom made by Hipshot and outfitted with piezo saddles.
