Fast intro since it's my first post: Name is John & I'm 47...been playing since I'm 13. I got a few years under my finger tips... I currently own a Yamaha RBX-550 that I converted to fretless 10 years ago and I have a Honer acoustic I use to annoy the dog & my wife with. A close friend has convinced me to start hitting the studio with him & his buddies to make some noise and I'm lovin it! Now the question: I want to fill out our sound and have been tempted to look into a Rogue 8 string LX408. Anyone have any experience playing a Rogue? I know it's an inexpensive guitar, but it's not so much the money as having too many hobbies and I don't want to push the Wife's panic-button by spending $800-1,200 on a guitar right now.... Any and all input is appreciated!
