The Eristic It'd be great to have for some of the piano pieces I'm transcribing. Hope it's not fugly &/or a sig model.

A "Mate" logo . That'd be funny. They could market it as a guitar for "mate's" here in Australia.. nah, that'd just be lame.

lol

P.S. j/k'ing btw...
LOLZOR!! steve vai in the DLR era would buy it then! just watch the "just like in paradise" movie clip, he definitely looks like he wants to mate with one of us!

Wadstein Id buy one aswell...

Anybody have som more info on this?

jerrye i would think it would be a keeper just as its likely if its ever made available to the GP its not likely to be a big seller and would be very small run.
10-22-2003 02:09 PM
BucketBot Yeah, I'd have to pick one up too. Just to have.

Getthis if they made an 8-string that was affordable, I'd buy one. I've always prefered 7-strings guitars, and 5 and 6-string basses over playing a 6 string guitar.....

sam669 an M-8 logo would be funny, that would mean Ibanez loves sick looking creations LOL!
gah, uniqueness is in the hands, and anyways, I doubt so much people will get to it so... Some people in my area still find it bizarre and original that I play my 2027x most of the time.

BucketBot I've heard for a while that Mårten and Fredrick from Meshuggah were getting a couple of them since they weren't quite totally happy with their Nevborns.
Should be interesting if infact the 8 string is what is coming from Ibanez. I'd really be curious to see how it sells. For that matter, the cost too. Personally, I think there would be a small but relatively decent sized market for them to do a limited run. Hopefully it will be with "Prestige attention to detail". Such as the K-7. As long as they don't put an M-8 logo on the 12th fret.
I don't see it lasting very long though.
And personally, for me, a production model 8 string by a company such as Ibanez(or any large company for that matter) will totally take the "unique-ness" away from the instrument IMHO.

Jem7RB MK Oh don't get me wrong the first one will be a fixed bridge,but regular scale,Possibly tho,and i've been thinking thos over for a little while,tune the whole thing *UP* to F ? should increase a little tension

The lo-pro 8 or edge for that matter is an idea i'm going to test before routing a cavity in the hardtail

With me ?

jerrye and your going to use lo pro edge? i would have thought the only way to get away with intonation, strip flop and all would be with a fixed bridge and possibly a baritone neck?
my hat is well and truly doft.

Jem7RB MK I thought it through for some time and decided on low,think it'll be easier in the long run,and i was worried about string gauge for a high A
