OMG! Custom shop manager, that's got to be an awesome job. Anyway, if there is a market for 7 strings, I think there is for 8 strings. Anybody who can put 7 strings to use knows that another string never hurts and I think 90% of 7 string players would agree that they would buy an 8 string Ibanez if one were to go into production. An 8 string RG mass produced......one day.......hopefully soon!

And whilst that's great I doubt there will be the lefty that's been requested?

A lefty Seven string would be nice too.

Why would it make more sense than any other tuning? Tunings making sense is dependant on what you want to do with the instrument. For open chord stuff I suppose G-B-E-A-D-G-B-E would make sense but the tuning it comes in doesn't really matter, tunings can always be changed.

I've just seen Rusty Cooley's 8 string RG, seems Ibanez is sticking to a 30" scale which makes sense. Shame about the inlay and headstock imo, Meshuggah's thru-neck 8s with a neck pickup would be cool to see as a production model I think.

I don't care what tuning they use as long as they make a lefty version .

The tuning wish makes no sense... You can tune a guitar however YOU want when you get it. 4th with the 3rd for B is standards, so it would be tuned F#BEADGBE...Makes sense.
As for the Trem wish...honestly you will be waiting till the right handers get a trem on a production model before lefties get one... a main stream companie that is, i'm not talking about Halo.
Just get a cusom, because you will be waiting longer for that that for a custom to get built.

Rondo/Agile are working on and 8 String standard model that i think is going to be around 650US, which has got many of the ERG guys at SS.org drooling, why not talk to Rondo music and ask em if they can do you a quote for a leftie 8stringer... who know's in 18 months it may become a reality, but id ask them, well priced and descent quality.
