I recomend speaking to Revsharp777, he is really the only one that is having one built. He will know everything about it. So if you ask him he will let you know everything!

You could also send a few emails to Conklin and Nevborn. But a few people on here should be able to help ya out!

revsharp bought his neck off of ebay (they very occasionally come up) but Jeremy at LGM will be starting work on my 8 stringer soon - and the neck is coming to about $450 i think - drop him a mail.

I think he's telling you that you can use LGM for the neck and EKG for the rest if you want to. They've collaborated in the past and it's not like they couldn't coordinate the neck/neck pocket relationship or the string spacing/neck width relationship.

Eddie is building the body & assembling the guitar for me. Both Eddie (EKG) & Jeremy (LGM) are master craftsmen. Jeremy is offering 8-string necks with options for left- or right-handed & regular or reverse headstocks! If I have another 8-string built, a reverse 8-string neck sounds awesome to me.

As of now, my new 8-string is scheduled to be in my hands in 48 hours or less. I can't wait.

P.S. This is my 777th post! Coincidence?

BTW, broke 4000 today.

Uh, contact Jeremy.
