        It was decent

        Comments about ESP LTD SC-208 Stephen Carpenter 8-String Electric Guitar:

        Overall it's a good guitar. I just wish it came with the EMG picups if it did I wouldn't have just exchanged it yesterday for a guitar that did have them. Hopefully the guitar plays just as well.
        Features were good for the price. I actually liked the look, feel and features.
        Quality was pretty good. I did notice it got out of tune rather easier than I was use to but I'm also use to a locking system on one of my guitars. Also the top string sounded a little muddy with the picups but it wasn't to bad, but I read emg picups would fix that.
        Def worth it for the money and it played a lot better than I thought. It's a real good backup guitar and a good first time 8 string adventure to see if your down to continue to play 8 strings.

        My First 8 string

        By THE_SRC

        Comments about ESP LTD SC-208 Stephen Carpenter 8-String Electric Guitar:

        this guitar turned out to be way more than i expected, sure, the neck isn't painted, but the natural satin is still a great way to go. the ESP LH-308 pickups are better than i thought they would be as well, never muddy, even on that low F#. i cant tell you how much i love this thing, check it out, you wont regret it.
