Sound — 8
The sound is no better then my Schecter Omen 7 but what can you expect from a cheap guitar like this. For me when playing with my Engl E530 it sounds great for meshuggah stile. Not so djenty but a good tone.

Overall Impression — 9
I play the most styles. Now I'm into djent music/sound and maybe with some pedals I kan recieve it. The only bad thing I see is that you need to get it from Rondomusic and the ship it. Too bad it cost half the guitar just shipping and shit! Like 8stings? Get this one.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I will play this guitar live and it seems to be a very good guitar for the price and better than Ibanezes!

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The top 3 strings rasstle a bit when you hit but maybe it's the strings or the intonation. The body is large but I like it a lot! Feels like your playing a monster guitar and that's nice.

    Hey y'all! I got an 8 string Spector, and was wondering what strings y'all use for these geetars? Jus replaced the stock pickups for some Duncan's and when I went to string it again with the Ernie ball 8 strings. The 7th B string was too short to reach the tuning peg. Just wondering if anyone else had this issue and/or specific strings you find best for these axes? Thanks.
