I know there arnt many 8 string players here, but I figured what the hell! I might as well copy and paste my for sale thread here too!
Hey guys. Selling my DC800. As you can see, its white white with the gold sperzels and hipshot. It has a BKP ceramic warpig with matching gold lugs in the bridge and a dimarzio ionizer in the neck. The pup combo slays. Crazy brutality on the bridge and smooth jazzy on the neck.
Frets are stainless and the board is flamed maple as you can see. An excellent cut as well. This guitar plays amazingly well. I cant stress that enough.
I moved the volume knob to the tone knob hole and plugged the volume hole with a little cap from lowes. Just pop it out if you want and throw another pot in there. Its wired to a push pull pot that pulls out for single coils currently.
The pup covers are the basic black pup covers you see everywhere, but I bought a can of plasti-dip(just a spray can of liquid rubber) and just sprayed them. It peels off in one piece easily so you can either have them original black or respray them white in a matter of 20 minutes(I do it once every 6 months or so to keep them hot white). I was going to have a paint shop buddy spray them, but I found that this was an easier option.
I also drilled out the lug holes for the bridge pup as you can see, and I have a few extra black stock covers I can throw in so if you want to have a painted set or whatever, its an option.
As for problems, there is only 1 ding, above the pick selector switch. Its not bad at all and barely noticable, but its still there. Other than that, this thing plays and sounds f'in beautiful. I thought this one would go to the grave with me, but as I get older, I'm wanting smaller, compact guitars with less strings. So there ya go.
