Re: some new 8 strings coming up
Damn, guys at sevenstring.org measured the scale lenght on the FM-408 (using EMG pickup width and proportion calculations) and its only 25.5.
What a bummer
Believe or not, that is indeed great news for me, since I don't use a low F#, but a high G or A instead.
For people willing to use it for Sikth / Meshuggah tight riffage, I find it quite inapropriate, though. There's no way an F# will retain definition on a standard scale without making all other string completely nasal, or worse, too trebly.
Edit: first post, first typo... how typical of me!
