About 8 String Guitars
8 string guitars are becoming more and more popular as heavier music progresses and the need to go lower and heavier increases. 8 string electric guitars are an important part of what is known as 'extended range' guitars, since they not only have two more strings than a standard guitar, they require a longer neck to intone the notes properly.
8 string guitars have an additional low 'B' string and an 'F#' for notes that go lower than an electric guitar ever has before. Ibanez were the first mainstream company to offer a mass production 8 string guitar but they have since been joined by lots of other manufacturers including Jackson, Strandberg and particularly Schecter who offer a wide selection of 8 string guitars in all price brackets. These are all available from the guitarguitar website and from our stores.
