2006  Rodriguez, Thomas Concert 8-String - Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Thomas Rodriguez is an exceptional luthier and this custom 8 string offers an array of possibilities to the modern player. The bass strings can be setup and tuned a variety of ways offering wonderful exploration for arrangements and performance with a much wider range than standard guitar. The construction is beautiful as is the tone, making this a rare and special guitar." - Paul Heumiller

"Not having any experience with this tuning, I spent most of my time with this guitar just getting to know it. I found that it was very easy to finger and play left hand notes once the width of the neck was understood a bit more. I can imagine lots of great things that could be done. I like having the low strings tuned in whole steps somewhat like a harp guitar. The tuning used here is CDEADGBE." - Al Petteway
