Blatantly taking a leaf out of ESP/LTD there.

I can't believe there's a market for these things, needless to say I'd like an 8'er myself just for laughs.

Can't seem to see any more 09 models on that site. Ah my favourite guitar time of year is Winter NAMM

+1
That neck looks like a cricket bat rather than a bassball bat...

But then :http://www.drumcityguitarland.com/dr...P1755C456.aspx
Isnt much better.

I can see a lot of scope with that thing for playing it touch style though, and im sure someone with Yety hands will probably show everyone were all wrong but hell i like 7 strings so whatever.

scale length FAIL.


26 1/2 is not enough for an 8, IMO.

well its better than the non sig ESP's

honestly a 8 string shouldn't be less than 27". I can't wait for my Intrepid which is 28.325"

Still... I wouldn't go below G# with a "27. "28 is the bare minimum for an F# in my humble opinion.

I really want an 8 string for fun. I play a 7 right now, and I want to tune the 8 up and give myself an extra high string.

I tried the LTD 8 string yesterday and the F# was so Flubby sounding! No definition or clairity what so ever! Strings 1-7 were fine tho. If the scale length was longer and the string was bigger than a .68 it porb would have been cool.
