  1. My project of making an 8 string guitar from scratch. I am planning on building an 8 string guitar from scratch. Im just looking for some advise, this is my first guitar, and i know and 8 string is not the best build for a first timer, but i have my heart set on it and i am fairly confident i can do it. I have basic woodworking skills and access to most necessary tools and facilities. I also have a mentor who has made many guitar in the past, although he has never made an 8 string and doesn't know to much about them. I have a budget of around $1200 - $150 and i kinda know what parts i want. In terms of wood, i was thinking full mahogany body with a flamed or quilted maple top, maple neck somewhere between 27" and 28" and an ebony fretboard. With the hardware, I was looking at EMG 808's or 808x's for my pickups, but i'm still unsure of things like the wiring sets that can be used for an eight string. Is it the same as a six? And i'm also not sure about the bridge. What would be the best one and where can i purchase it from at the cheapest price? Any information about making an 8 string is greatly appreciated. Thank you. - Josh
