Investigate how progressive rockers Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes weave emotive jams with 16 strings, both tube heads and digital amp modelers, and a stockpile of stomps.
Javier Reyes recently scored this custom-made ESP Vintage Plus 8-string that has a gold Floyd Rose trem and a features the same neck profile and inlays that are on his current ESP signature model. It is equipped with a custom set of DiMarzio single-coils. He uses D’Addario NYXL custom 8-string sets (.0095-.074) and Dunlop .73 mm signature picks (similar to a Jazz III, but slightly larger).
