Hey, it's been a while since I was here. I got an eight string on kijiji a year or so ago and my Korg GA tuner has never been about to get the F# and I've had to use an old Line 6 spider's built in tuner.
What does everyone else use/recommend for tuning an eight string?
Hello everyone. After a decade following this community I decided to create a profile and write my first post.
Late 2017, after several years without playing guitar I decided to buy my first ERG, for the lack of availability of Ibanez guitars in Middle East (I was in Dubai back then) I...

So I have just gotten an 8 string guitar with a 28" scale length and got a set of GHS Boomers 10-80's and I find them to not have enough tension, even in standard tuning. Do you guys recommend any sets or have any tips for building sets?
New guitar day. I haven't seen anyone else post anything about these while I was looking to buy mine so I figured I'd throw it out there.
This is my second agile I've owned but my first mutliscale and first headless guitar.
The guitar comes with a mohogany body with a burled ash top, 1 peice...

Got my first 8 string for christmas and this thing is AMAZING! It is super comfortable while playing and the only gripes i have about it are the emg 808s (ALTHOUGH they arent as bad as people make them out to be, they do lack the dynamics and response that the Nazgul i have in my 7 and the...

What's the best online store to get a custom set made?
I like these gauges for my 7 & 8 sting guitars with 27" scales:
.066 B & (.068 for 7 string guitar low A)
I have an 8 string with a 25.5" scale which always went HORRIBLE with the 10-74 set and I'm thinking this string set just might be the answer to my prayers. Its something along the lines of 9-46+64+80. Its not perfect but its a HELL of a lot better than any other mass prodced 8 string set...
