Anyone seen these 7 and 8 strings?

Hi,
Just saw a review in guitarist magazine of these guys' 6 strings, and have visited their website, and they do 7 strings, and have pics of a 30" scale 8 string aswell.

http://www.blackmachine.co.uk/

Go to the B7 link to see the seven string, and to the news page to see the 8. They look very nice to me, and have some unusual ideas - no paint, and thin bodies, etc.
regards,
Rich

These have been talked about here before, I dont know if the threads still exist. Clive (who hangs around here sometimes) owns a Blackmachine B2. The band "Sikth" also play them sometimes too. They are very nice guitars, and many people know of them now. They have only just recently started making the 8 stringers though!

They are quite expensive. To get a basic 6-string made for you, with no finish and no frills......I think it will set you back about 1000. They aint cheap, but then again they are hand-made custom instruments. The 7 and 8 string would cost alot more I pressume. But I could be wrong!
