T8

The T8 instrument is optimized for playing in seated position but it also sits on the body with the strap like every other U8. Since we made very good experience with the response of our semi-hollowed AU8 model this model is also semi-hollowed. You can say this is best of both worlds.

T8

New features:

– Offset design and 3D-shaped horns for easier playing in seated position as well as easier access to the top frets from both sides of the neck
– Two graphite rods to enhance neck stability
– Semi-hollowed body
– Easier trussrod access
– Custom electronics with 5-way switch and tone control for every pickup:

Positions:
1. neck humbucker
2. neck single coil
3. neck and brige hubucker
4. inner single coils of neck and bridge
5. bridge humbucker

– Two pickup configurations to choose from: vintage (JBass based) or modern (same as U8 Deluxe)

 

This 8-string model has a monophonic output, reflecting the philosophy that it’s one self-contained full-range instrument, and not separate “bass” and “guitar” sides combined. Generally speaking, the T8 Standard instruments feel like baritone guitars, and are smaller and lighter than any regular bass guitar, even though they have a 34″ scale length.
