Non-RG ibanez 8 string mockups, pics inside!

i posted these on sevenstring.org earlier, but i thought you guys would love these aswell...

8 String Artist guitar:

8 string Iceman! :

and now for one that iīve been thinking about alot... the BTB Bass bodyshape 8-string guitar! : http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/2...8mockupfs8.jpg

my favourites are the singlecut Artist and the BTB bass ones...
especially the BTB one, because itīs such a delicious body! if you could do something with the beveled edges to make it more guitarist-friendly, like sculpt the edges to fit the arm better, and sculpt the backside etc. like the various sculpts you find on guitars... maybe even tone down or remove the bevel...

also: the only reason theyīre all black, is because the RG 2228 is all black, so to make the photoshopping easier, i just went for black ones... although they are nice, i would love to see some pretty colors instead of these ones :P

my main thought is that endorsed artists should think about what body shape they went for when they got LACS 8 strings, like dino, munky, vai and Meshuggah...

the BTB one i just want for myself hehe :P

Re: Non-RG ibanez 8 string mockups, pics inside!

I really like the singlecut mockup, although in reality, the body would have to be made from heavier woods so it wouldn't be neck heavy.

I like the mockup with the bass guitar body, too. I think it's a shame that basses get the cooler bodies, woods, etc. while guitars pretty much are required to rehash the same few body times and wood configs.

The Iceman and BTB look interesting, but the artist models look like what some godawful nu-metal band would use.

well, while i do know what you mean, iīll go right ahead and say itīs the blackness of them thatīs doing it... imagine them with a nice natural finish, like transparent satin finish or something like that, or a nice vintage violin finish with quilted maple top, and maybe a tree of life-vines style inlay in some amber-colored mother of pearl/abalone-style look...

itīs all about the color, you have to look away from that and see the wholeness of it! :P

Re: Non-RG ibanez 8 string mockups, pics inside!

Yeah, the BTB IS nice, aint it? :P

i played a BTB bass in a music store once, and loved the shape and look, and the general feel of it... so i was laying around thinking what would be a cool body shape for an 8 string?

tadaa, the BTB came to mind, so i hopped into the intarwebs and shopped it...

but itīs not looking all itīs best in black... look at these:

http://www.ibanez.co.jp/img2007/eb/m...M_BB_1A_02.gif

the top one is the BTB i tried and thought of... i do love the two others also, especially that last one... although the middle one has a nice subtle character to it...

now imagine those colors in 8-string guitar format!

They well, done, but i really dont like eight strings :$ i think the cash into the 8 string project could have been better used, but then again, they mite be a huge seller, i dont follow ibanez sales figures.
