Halo Custom Guitars added four new 8 string guitar models to its product line. The expanded offering of 8 string guitars is in direct response to increasing demand. “We built and sold our first 8 string guitar in 2006,” stated Jeff Lee, General Manager with Halo Custom Guitars. “Back then, having 8 strings on an electric guitar was rare and considered ‘pushing the envelope’. Now, 8 string guitars are becoming much more common. The new Halo 8 string guitar models will feature a ‘Tune-O-Matic’ bridge, a feature not yet seen on any 8 string guitars in the world.”
The Halo 8 string guitar is designed to play more notes when compared to a standard guitar, which only has 6 strings. The additional strings are typically used for extending the range of the guitar’s low notes. However, the additional strings can also be used for extending the range of the guitar’s high notes.
“I am excited to be part of Halo Custom Guitars because they are always staying ahead of the pack by incorporating new features and guitar technology in their instruments,” stated Alvin Gatewood, Quality Control Manager with Halo Custom Guitars. “We are equipping the new Halo 8 string guitars with the world’s first 8 string ‘Tune-O-Matic’-Style Bridge and Tail Piece System, which we developed and manufactured in-house. These guitars are going to be a big hit as they have many high-performance features and maintain the high quality traditional hand craftsmanship desired by musicians.”
