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 helped us create the affordable, high-quality LTD Signature Series JR-208. It's an 8-string baritone guitar at 27" scale, allowing for a greatly extended range of pitch than a standard guitar. It includes a mahogany body, a bolt-on maple neck, ESP Designed LH-308N and LH-308B pickups, and an LTD fixed bridge with string-thru-body. Controls include volume, tone (with the ability to split pickups to single coil), and a 3-way pickup selector. Available in Pelham Blue finish with gold hardware.

I've been scrolling through the internet, but it seems the black version of this guitar has disappeared, for me(European) at least. Any idea where I could purchase the black jr-208 in the Netherlands?

Bought this guitar in black last year, absolutely love it except the pickups. I swapped them for EMG 808x and now is an absolute killer. My question is, what kind of gigbag do you recommend? I tried a commercial guitar gigbag but didn't fit because of the 27inches neck.
