Artist Indominus8 8 String Electric Guitar - Black Chrome
Tune even lower with the new Artist Indominus8. This is the perfect 8 String guitar to take you on that journey into the world of super low-tuned Metal, and Djent.
The Indominus8 has a similar body shape to that of the 'super-strat' and combines a cool gloss-black basswood body with a maple bolt-on neck. The chrome hard-tail string-through bridge ensures that the instrument has the great sustaining capabilities so necessary in achieving that 'metal wail'. As should be the case, the controls are simple and effective, 1 volume, 1 Tone and 3-way Toggle selector. The guitar is fitted with 10-74 gauge strings.
With moderate to high output passive ceramic humbuckers installed in soap-bar mounts, this guitar has a tight low end allowing for that familiar lower-mid growl that you should hear in any quality 8 string on the market.
It should be noted that this guitar is a newer upgraded version of the original Indominus8 and now sports better hardware that includes upgraded machine heads and importantly conductive paint in the control cavity.
The Artist Indominous8 definitely has some serious hardcore mojo and could be your springboard into heavy metal nirvana. Why not check it out - chances are you won't be sorry.
This guitar has standard tuning posts. In the unlikely event that your strings are too thick for the post holes (if you enjoy playing with heavy-gauge strings), you might need to drill out the post hole and bevel (smooth) the entry and exit of the hole so that there are no sharp edges to break the string.
