Pioneered by guitar virtuoso “Charlie Hunter”, This is an eight string guitar on which you can simultaneously play bass lines, chords, and melodies. This guitar is traditionally tuned "E A D - a d g b e", but will accommodate "G C F" tuning. 

 Each side has separate circuitry and is meant to be plugged onto its own corresponding amplifier. The bottom 3 strings are dedicated to a bass register, and the top 5 strings are in a guitar register, all on one neck.
