Indominus 8 string guitar

Decent guitar! The strings it comes with are pretty shocking, but the unit itself works a dream.

Awesome guitar. Full review & play through here h

By: ANDREW on 1 June 2019
I bought this guitar with measured expectations given how in-expensive the guitar is. I have been playing for over 25 years and in that time I have had dozens of guitars, even now I currently have 9 other guitars including a custom made 7-string and Joe Satriani signature model. This Artist Indominus8 guitar is in my top 3. I don't know if it is because I am one of the lucky ones or the quality control is that tight but my particular guitar was flawlessly set up straight out of the box after a quick tuning. The only "blemish" is a tiny bit of over-spray of the conductive paint from the control cavity (who sees the back of a guitar?). I have always been one for "odd", custom or distinct guitars but I have to say the simplicity of the black body, smooth "black" eco-rosewood (so smooth to play) with inlays and black chrome hardware is gorgeous, the head stock is amazingly well designed, with great string spacing and weighted perfectly. I personally find this to be one of the easiest guitars in my collection to play. Despite the larger neck and my relatively small fingers I find this considerably easier to play than my custom made ARM 7-string guitar. Particularly for finger picking, jazz chords, tapping and poly-chords. Yes this will Djent but this guitar can do so much more than that, in the week I have had this guitar I have coaxed blues, grunge, prog, metal, pop and even country with relative ease. While it is no Telecaster, with the right pick attack, amp and attitude you can get close enough. Leads "sing", chords growl, there is "CHUG" and I find I even pluck and slap on the low strings for a great "bass" tone. Honestly if Artist Guitars was to ever offered to make a custom model just for me (I wish I was that famous) all I would add myself would be a 0 fret (fanned or otherwise) and factory fitted piezo pickup under the bridge with active hardware. I would love to install a piezo pickup under my bridge for acoustic tones now but don't wish to void my 3 year warranty. I suspect though that with the string spacing, ease of playing and right set up I could effectively superseded almost all my other guitars, including my acoustics. I use heavy picks and I am quite heavy handed, unintentionally playing the top string so hard I would induce fret buzz but this took little time to adjust to, so please keep that in mine if you are heavy handed like me. I have also found playing standing up more comfortable than sitting due to the neck. . . but hey who can stay seated while playing rock/metal? Keep this in mind though if you are use to sitting. In conclusion this is my first product from Artist Guitars and had very reserved expectations however this guitar has stunned me, particularly given the price. If you are tentative about getting an 8 string I would very highly recommend this one. Even if in the long run you find playing 8 strings is not for you I have found it exceptionally easy to play it as a "6 string". If Artist Guitars ever happen to read this and decide to make a model with a 0 fret (fanned or otherwise) and factory fitted piezo pickup under the bridge with active hardware please contact me (order #AG475083) and let me know :) - Andrew

Staight out of the box, all I had to do was tune the strings and away I went. I've never played an 8 string before and instantly I felt comfortable with this guitar. For what you get for the price, it's great value.

You get what you pay for.

Just leaving a review of my experience with this guitar as the Rave reviews I read on here weren't close to unit I got. Mine was far from playable when I received it. The action was sky high, Neck Action was back bowed and the intonation was waay off. Now this isn't uncommon when buying online for them to not be set up correctly but the guitar definitely wasn't tested or QA'd after it left the factory which brings me to the other issues. This guitar needs to be refretted straight from factory as the crown on the high E side of two of the higher frets has split straight from the tang/stud that attached it to the fretboard. It's that bad that if you bend the high E string too far out the string gets stuck under two of the frets. This is either extremely cheap fret wire or someone is hammering them in very rough at the factory. Being as guitar cost less than $300 it would probably cost about the same for a full set up, repair frets and level. this one is just going to be a dust collector in storage. Not to mention I bought pickups to upgrade which was another $300. I ended up purchasing an Ibanez RG8FM for less than $800 new and put the pickups in that for something that was a great guitar from the get go. Unless you are quite experienced in guitar set up or are willing to spend the money on repairs I think this guitar is a bit of a gamble. At least in my experience.
