Why not have 8 strings if you can play it comfortably? Why not be able to play bass lines and guitar lines on one instrument (or just some really really heavy riffs)? 6-strings are great, but just because guitars have had x number of strings or tuned such-and-such a way for decades, doesn't mean that we're married to that configuration.

To start things off, more coverage with minimal fretboard movement, more positions to start or extend any given scale off of, extended chords, etc.
