Javier Reyes JR-608 Demo & Playthrough

Javier Reyes, innovative guitarist for respected progressive instrumental metal kings Animals as Leaders and his own project Mestis, gives you a complete rundown of his LTD Signature Series guitar, the JR-608, and then does a playthrough of his song "El Mestizo" off the upcoming Mestis album Eikasia that is set for release on September 7.  The JR-608 is an extremely powerful 8-string guitar with a neck-thru-body design at 27" baritone scale.

I absolutely love my 608, I just wish I had waited a little longer to get the version that doesn't have gloss on the back of the neck. but aside from that I really think this guitar is a work horse.

It really is, i swapped the pups and i really enjoy it


A six string version of this would be so rad. All the specs of this are top notch. I really like that he went for a gloss front but a natural satin back for ultimate playability and great aesthetics. I really hate when you guys cover the whole back of the guitar in gloss black.
