When you want a really powerful guitar tone the Jackson B8 has your back, an 8 string guitar tuned to Baritone tuning gives you a frankly incredible range and a deep, characterful tone. Made in the USA this really is a fantastic guitar.
The eight-string B8 features a beveled alder body, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck with graphite reinforcement, compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12”-16”) with 24 jumbo frets and side-dot position markers, 27” scale length, dual direct-mount DiMarzio® D Activator 8™ pickups, Jackson direct-mount HT-8 hard-tail string-through bridge, Jackson-branded Gotoh® tuners and Dunlop® locking strap pins.
Catching all the tones of an 8 string without anything sounding too muddy at the low end or tinny at the highs is tricky. Fortunatly this Jackson has a pair of DiMarzio pickups specially designed to handle the complexity of tone an 8 string gives you.
Jackson USA Select guitars feature ultra-stable quartersawn maple necks and the finest ebony fingerboards with mother-of-pearl and real abalone inlays. The neck is finished with hand rubbed oil for a smooth and comfortable feel.
