Artist Indominus8 Black 8 String Electric Guitar w/ Humbuckers

Tune even lower with the Artist Indominus8! This is the perfect 8 String guitar to break into the world of super low-tuned Metal and Djent.

The Indominus8 combines sleek looks with performance hardware and features a gloss-black basswood body with a maple bolt-on neck. The black chrome hard-tail string-through bridge ensures that the instrument has great sustain to achieve that metal wail, and the two-way truss rod ensures this can be set up for thick strings and low tunings so you can chug away with no issues. The controls are simple and effective, 1 volume, 1 Tone, and a 3-way Toggle selector, and the guitar is factory-fitted with 10-74 gauge strings.

With moderate-to-high output passive ceramic humbuckers with soap-bar covers, this guitar has a tight low end allowing for that familiar lower-mid growl that you should hear in any quality 8-string on the market.

This guitar is a newer, upgraded version of the original Indominus8, and it now sports better hardware, including upgraded machine heads, conductive paint in the control cavity, and a superior bridge.

The Artist Indominous8 definitely has some serious hardcore mojo, and is the perfect entry to extended range and heavy metal instruments. 

This guitar has standard tuning posts. In the unlikely event that your strings are too thick for the post holes (if you enjoy playing with heavy-gauge strings), you might need to drill out the post hole and bevel (smooth) the entry and exit of the hole so that there are no sharp edges to break the string.

not a bad guitar

By: on 21 September 2023
purchased the 8 string ages ago second hand and pick it up from time to time to do a bit of composition or just stretch the fingers, it was a bit difficult to get used to at first, just like picking up that old nylon string in the music room at school. she has a fair bit of noise, but I'll get to tidying that up at a later date with an earthed bridge. I'd recommend utilising a locking nut for the input jack. volume and tone pots have pretty zero noise. weight is hefty but not so bad that it's gonna curve your spine playing weekend gigs, keeps tune pretty good and does stray out during play just like any other guitar subject to play time, weather, room, environment etc. action is pretty good through the strings, but everyone plays different. if someone was to purchase this guitar I'd recommend feeling it out first, workout what you like and what you want to change, take it to your guitar guy and get those things changed. the guitar definitely has potential for anyone who might want to make a project guitar and mod it without the guilt of tearing down a more expensive guitar or something that is seriously trashed.
