Best 8-string Guitars On A Budget

Home | Guitar | Best 8-string Guitars On A Budget



Update 07/06/2016 I realized a few of the guitars I highlighted are no longer available, so now you can find the new up to date list so you can explore the world of 8 string guitars today!

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!

Michael Kelly cc53 8 String – Review

Home | Guitar | Michael Kelly cc53 8 String – Review

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!
