If you’re a bass player ready to expand your sonic horizons, look no further than the B-208SM. It’s an 8-string bass with double course strings tuned in octaves, with the higher-pitched string placed above the standard bass pitch. The result is a full sound that is excellent for any kind of music, especially rock and metal power trios where the bass has to carry a lot of the weight. We’ve updated the B-208 in 2018 with an amazing spalted maple top, with its unique coloration and grain pattern highlights that make it stand out from the crowd. The B-208SM has a comfortable ash body, a thin U-shaped 5-piece maple/jatoba neck with a roasted jatoba fingerboard, and ESP Designed soapbar pickups with an active 3-band EQ. Available in Natural Satin finish.

I've wanted an 8-string bass for 40+ years (yes I'm old ), so I finally bought myself a B-208SM, and now that I have it all I can say is I wish I hadn't taken so long to get one. This axe is awesome. I played it at church, and got numerous compliments on my tone. They even want to highlight it on some songs.
First song I learned was a song about a boy named Jeremy, .
