Javier Reyes JR608
Javier Reyes is one of the most innovative guitarists in progressive rock today. He consistently pushes the boundaries of how the electric guitar can be approached in his band Animals As Leaders and in his solo work. A master of the 8-string guitar, Javier had detailed input into the creation of the LTD Signature Series JR-608. This combination of eight strings with a five-piece walnut/maple/padauk neck-thru-body design at 27” baritone scale allows you to explore a huge range of pitch on a single instrument. Neck features also include Graphtec Black Tusq nut, an ebony fingerboard with a custom inlay pattern, and glow in the dark side markers. It offers a swamp ash body with the resulting articulate sound, along with a figured quilted maple top. Top-tier components on the JR-608 include a Schaller Hannes-8 bridge, and Javier’s own DiMarzio Eclipse 8 signature pickups with transparent and dynamic lows and mids, and highs that offer a glassy chime you normal don’t associate with humbuckers. It features a 5-way super switch to access all the combinations of tones offered as well as a separate mini toggle switch to split the humbuckers. Available in Faded Blue Sunburst finish.
