I love 8 strings, I love Telecasters, I love EMG's, I love lamp.
I'm GASing for an 8 string Tele. I know Halo doesn't get much love but I'm curious about this one.
Please tell me why I shouldn't buy this.
Halo, that's why.
Their previous reputation was really bad. They're working to repair that, but I haven't seen any current reviews, so I can't say that they have or have not addressed the issues they had before.
I, too, love lamp.
