So, I traded for this maybe a year ago thinking I would seriously devote time to learning 8 string guitar. I love the Dean Murphy video compositions (and this was originally his axe). I just never spent the time. I did spend a solid chunk of time filling down all the razor sharp fret ends with my Stew Mac file, and conditioning the fingerboard. It plays better than when I received it. Here is the link from the thread I traded my Strandberg for it. https://www.sevenstring.org/threads/...lcon-8.334355/
I now need to find a 5 string bass purchase (yes, I've played that for decades) so I'm letting this go.
