    Default New 8 string from local builder

    When I visited a local builder last week, she had just gotten a lovely little 8 string strung up. I enjoyed it's mellow acoustic-like sound off the pickup, nice sustain, and easy playing - so I ended up stopping back to take it home on Saturday.

    Flamed redwood top, maple hollowbody, maple neck, katalox fretboard, Lace Alumitone pickup. Thrilled to have a one of a kind electric and eager to get to know it well. It spent a couple hours in my hands both days this weekend and I'm heading over to play it through a couple different amps/pedals tonight :D

    Likely going to head back this summer to have her guide my building a 4 string mandola/baritone with a different scale/pickup/vibe.

    So thankful I never impulse bought something online as it won't have a quarter of this one's mojo nor would I have someone just across town happy to tweak it as needed.

    I'm looking to use it for a gig I have in mid May, hope to get a little audio/video to share from that.

    Is your local builder Ellie Erickson?
