Pre-Order for 9th August (estimate)

Not all of us have the desire or need to play an 8 string guitar, but if you are up for it, this thing is fantastic value at under £500 I've seen a 2nd hand black one at £449 a while ago, which was a steal at the time, but never the red sparkle finish.

As above, this is a pre-order, not in the sense of a New Release. It's pending stock, so more of "on back order" as long as it's on it's way at t his price, that's all that matters

Delivery is free

The ESP LTD SC-608B features a Mahogany body that is perfect for accentuating the bass response from the lower strings, and serves as an excellent tonal foundation for the active pickups. The body is paired with a bright-sounding, thin "U"-shaped Maple neck which ensures that some crucial top-end snap pierces through. This helps to keep the instrument sounding clear and defined even with ultra high-gain amp settings.

To maintain the sleek aesthetic, the SC-608B's neck is adorned with a luscious Macassar Ebony fingerboard that feels super-smooth under the fingers. Fitted with 24 extra-jumbo frets, these will enable superb vibrato and string bending control.

Electronics & Hardware A set of Carpenter's signature Fishman Fluence pickups are fitted in the ESP LTD SC-608B, giving the instrument a monstrous, high-fidelity sound. Hundreds of renowned players have jumped onboard the Fishman bandwagon, but there's a reason for that! They just sound incredible for high-octane metal, and crystal-clear for cleans.

The ESP LTD SC-608B also boasts top-notch hardware appointments, including a beautifully-machined Hipshot bridge that feels super-solid under the picking hand. Tuning stability shouldn't be an issue either, especially with the locking LTD tuners.

Anyone got a tab for an 8 string version of Stairway? No?

Was hoping for an 11 string for my spinal tap amp
Nice price, given that it comes with a pair of Fishmans too.

Can confirm if you saw the £449 second hand sc608b at Anderson’s that was my guitar, traded it in for £400 towards a prs black stone cherry signature.

This guitar is a beast and loved it just didn’t have time to push myself to learn 8 string stuff
Only interested if they can scallop it and add a Floyd rose trem
Not into 8-string guitars, but noticed that Andertons also has the little brother of this guitar, the SC-208 8-string, for the insanely low price of £199. Also a preorder. Probably reduced because it's being discontinued, but excellent value if that's your thing.
