The Charlie Hunter 8-string guitar is a result of the collaborative design efforts of Charlie Hunter and Ralph Novak. All critical specifications – scale lengths, electronics and pickups, string spacing and neck dimensions – are the same as Charlie Hunter’s current instrument. Charlie and Ralph perfected this 8-string guitar by investing years of careful analysis of numerous prototypes. This unique instrument allows you to drive the rhythm section with solid, deep bass while comping or soloing rich guitar riffs at the same time, live. Both registers have clarity and tone unmatched by conventionally fretted instruments thanks to the Fanned-Fret® system. Now, you can explore new musical horizons offered only by the Charlie Hunter 8-string.
