Creative people often love to experiment with different sounds and improve on their existing skills. An extended range electric guitar is an ideal way to advance playing abilities and add a unique twist to your killer riffs. Since the 1950's when electric guitars really started to explode on the music scene, artists have been adding strings in order to create new and exciting sounds to the electric guitar. While a standard electric guitar has six strings, an extended range guitar would have seven, eight, or 12 strings. A 12 string guitar generally features twin sets of strings paired close together on the neck and tuned octaves apart. The pairs are played together as one, and most of the strings are tuned octaves apart for a fuller tone. This provides a harmonic, rhythmic sound often heard in folk music or classic rock. George Harrison of the Beatles, Jimmy page of Led Zepplin and Roger McGuinn of the Byrds have all used 12 string guitars in their music. If you're going for a louder, harder hitting sound, a 7 or 8 string guitar is what you need.

These guitars often appeal to metal players who use the additional strings to beef up their lower end play and to increase the range of pitches available to them. These guitars provide an exceptional range when you need to fill the room with power. If you're looking for steller tone without pitchiness for blasting hard rock and metal tunes, these are the guitars for you. Extended range electric guitars are a fantastic route when you've mastered the intricacies of your favorite instrument and are ready to kick it up a notch and create a more memorable sound. Even the most talented musicians would agree there is always room for growth and increasing your skill set. With a seven, eight, or 12 string electric guitar, you'll be blasting new and exciting tunes before you know it.
