Absolutely love it! The neck is a perfect size, great for long gigs without tiring your hand. The finish is flawless and absolutely beautiful. The pickups have a great low end to bring out the creaminess of the lowest string (I tune mine ebgdaEBE)
By Micah Smith
The guitar amazing. The finish is astonishing; especially under stage lighting. The fret board is smooth and the neck is the perfect size. It's right between a wizard III profile and a Schecter neck. The scale length make the low end sound massive, but there's absolutely no head diving. The only thing that could be improved is the pickups. However, if you like a smoother low end and creamy high end, then these pups will be perfect for you. I like a little bit more bight on my low end though. I'll be switching them to black outs or emgs soon. Haven't decided yet. But seriously, this guitar is amazing.
Taking into consideration, it was going to be my first 27" scale guitar as well as my first 8 string I spent quite a lot of time reading through forums on the internet before I ordered it. When it arrived I was amazed with the quality of build. Believe or not, it looks much better than it looks on the picture. The guitar is hand-crafted in South Korea and feels solid. The body design is just amazing. The stock pickups sound much better than I expected them to sound. It came with a pretty high action, but it took a minute to lower it. You might consider the fact that the neck is quite heavy compared to the body, so use a wide leather strap to avoid neck-diving. I have been using it for a few weeks so far, and haven't noticed any problems with it. This guitar is a great deal for it's price!
Definitely worth the money for a starter 8 string guitar...it feels natural and has a 27" scale neck with the jumbo fret combo makes playing it easier. In my opinion it's worth the buy - comfortable, affordable, and the seller is very good about customer service as well.
Question: What is the difference between the Septor, the Septor Pro, and the Septor Elite?
Answer: The original Septor has a 3 piece, maple, bolt-on neck. The Septor Pro and Septor Elite have the 5 piece neck-through body design. The Septor Pro has the Cepheus TOM bridge with graphite saddles and staggered string-through holes for improved intonation. The Septor Elite has the Cepheus high mass extended range fixed bridge, which offers the saddle for the widest range of tunings and non-standard string gauges. (The original Septor could have either the Cepheus TOM bridge or the Cepheus high mass extended range fixed bridge, depending on the particular model.) Both bridges are excellent and offer ultra-fine tuning. Choosing which bridge is for you is simply a matter of preference.
