Great sounding guitar! Very stable
Wrick 25.07.2022
This is my first 8 string multiscale. Until now I've always played a standard 6 string but this time I figured maybe try something new.

Pros: Pickups are great sounding in all voices, really crisp tone. I'm not sure how long the battery lasts, but hopefully it will stay for a while.
Fretboard is quick, kind of like an Ibanez, but has a contour on the neck for which follows your the actual movement of your hands which is great.
The tuners are very stable even at really low tuning.
Very light guitar for an extended scale.

Cons: The surface of the body has very small imperfections, but nothing that worrisome. But I still like a full clean, clear coated smooth body.
Output jack gets really sticky sometimes and I have a hard time getting the cable out, but otherwise the wiring feels stable even while playing heavy.

Overall a good guitar for the price, especially with the electronics it offers.


Great 8 string
PavlosP 23.01.2023
I have this guitar for a few months now and am very pleased with it. The Fishman pickups sound huge and the coil taps/push-pull knobs give a lot of possibilities for tonal variety. Very sturdy, looks beautiful with a great porous wood satin texture and it's one of the only 28 inch multiscale 8 string guitars out there in the under 1000 euro price range.

The only minor points have come down to QC. For a guitar in this price I would have expected a very smooth finish on the neck and frets but was not exactly the case. While the satin feel on the neck is great, around the 12th fret there seems to be a small patch of unfinished, somewhat rough wood, plus some frets do seem to be a tiny bit sharp. Having said that, it is not like I'm getting splinters and fret cuts, it runs quite smooth but for the price I do consider those minor points.

In general, I'm very happy with it and it is definitely a keeper!

Sehr schöne Gitarre
Frequenz 18.06.2022
Das ist meine erste Multi-scale Gitarre und ich bin begeistert! Die Fishman fluence Pickups haben einen großartigen Klang. Die Gitarre ist sehr gut verarbeitet und sieht echt edel aus. Der Hals ist sehr flach und lässt sich super leicht spielen. Die Rückseite ist matt schwarz lackiert. Das String-lock system am Kopf ist toll, man muss die Saiten nicht aufwickeln, damit sie fest sitzen. Man kann den Volume- und Tone-Knopf etwas heraus ziehen, um verschiedene Pickup Sounds einzustellen! Echt Supertoll! Habe mich sofort verliebt.
