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 had detailed input into the creation of the LTD Signature Series JR-608. This combination of eight strings with a five-piece walnut/maple/padauk neck-thru-body design at 27” baritone scale allows you to explore a huge range of pitch on a single instrument.
Its features also include Graphtec Black Tusq nut, a Macassar ebony fingerboard with a custom inlay pattern, and glow in the dark side markers. It offers a swamp ash body with the resulting articulate sound, along with a figured quilted maple top.
Top-tier components on the JR-608 include a Hipshot bridge with string-thru-body setup, and a set of Javier’s new Fishman Javier Reyes Open Core Signature Pickups, with a mini-switch to engage it’s multiple voicings. Available in Faded Blue Sunburst finish.
