While some guitarists enjoy playing their instrument as a casual hobby, others use their skill to explore every aspect of their musical abilities. It's for this reason why many of these guitarists opt for an 8-string electric guitar instead of the usual 6-string model. On the whole, 8-string electric guitars are certainly not as common as their 6-string counterparts, but they're used a fair amount in musical genres that demand a higher level of technicality - jazz, classical and metal, to name a few.

In this catalog you'll discover an impressive variety of 8-string electric guitars from acclaimed brands like Ibanez, Dean, Jackson and many others. These companies are well known and respected for their wide range of 8-string electric guitars that cover every taste and price range. For example, if you're a metalhead who is new to the 8-string electric guitar and wants to start on something more affordable, the Dean Custom 850X and the Ibanez RG8 8-String Electric Guitars are definitely worthy of your consideration. Both of these models also happen to be popular sellers.

Or, maybe you're a veteran shredder and want to make a new addition to your current collection of axes - in which case, there are plenty of 8-string beasts here that would provide you with a lifetime of a musical enjoyment. In fact, many of the higher-end models in this section were designed in collaboration with famous players. Need some suggestions? Check out the Ibanez TAM10 Tosin Abasi Signature Model, or the ESP LTD Javier Reyes JR-208. As members of the American progressive metal band Animals as Leaders, Reyes and Abasi have very high standards when it comes to what makes a great 8-string electric - and it's obvious when you play either one of these beauties.

So what else is there to say except "browse away"? This selection of 8-string electric guitars goes far beyond the models mentioned above, and taking some time out to explore each axe thoroughly is the best way to decide which one is right for you. Before you know it, you'll have an 8-string electric guitar in your hands that perfectly matches your talents.
