Well, for those on a super tight budget you can’t go wrong with the Jackson JS22-7 Dinky. It is a phenomenal price for a 7 string and you can sell it on for damn near as much as you bought it for.

If you are looking for a cheap 8-string guitar look no further! Here is a rundown of the best 8-string guitars you can get on a budget, each with a short review. 8-strings still aren’t as cheap as their 7-string counterparts but you can still get yourself a good one for a great price.
Early summary for those who can’t wait. My personal favorite is the Ibanez RG8004. It is perfect just to play around with if you’re getting used to the 8-string. Then, if you decide to get more serious you could easily swap out the stock pickups for something more serious! Check it out at Guitar Center!
Or for those looking for something a little next level but are still on a budget then the Javier Reyes ESP is a phenomenal guitar for the price. Find it at Guitar Center!
I am in love.
This Michael Kelly 8 string inspired by the 50s telecaster is absolute gold. It is such a unique looking guitar. Most 7 and 8 strings tend to be black with a polished sleek finish, and don’t get me wrong that does look great but to see such an original design for an 8 string is really refreshing. I mean look at it! Or check it out here on amazon!

It is just a gorgeous piece of equipment. The flame effect body with the signature telecaster pickguard, beautiful. I’m just going to let you look at it some more before I get down to the nitty-gritty of why you need to buy this guitar.Read more: Michael Kelly cc53 8 String – Review
