    I do not know when this guitar was built, but I if I had seen it before I would have remembered. Sorry if I'm out of the loop. Does anybody know anything about this guitar? Something about it looks "odd" (a better picture might help clear that up) but if it is a fundamentally well-constructed...

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: For sale is here an original RAN customshop 8-string guitar. This is a one off. The inscription on the Fretboard is an excerpt from an ancient Chinese poem... It's some real deep **** using an 8-stringed instrument as a metaphor to describe hope. It...

    Hey folks. Thought I'd record something to show the more subtle reaches of my Ibanez Iron Label 8-string. I've got a Seymour Duncan Sentient in the neck position and I used that for everything in this song, including the mock bass (just tuned the lowest string down to E and jammed it through a...

    Just installed the new Seymour Duncan Pegasus (bridge) and Sentient (neck) pickups in my Ibanez Iron Label 8-string. So far so awesome! These are passive humbuckers, and I got the versions housed in active-style casings to fit the big EMG routs. Wired up a 5-way superswitch to have single coil...

    WOO! It's here! Bought this from the Ibanez Guitar Centre in Adelaide, after trying to find one here in Melbourne with no luck (only one local store even bothered to reply to my email, can you believe it?). So far so awesome! I've already noticed that it's bringing things out of my playing that...

    OOoooooh yeah. More here: http://iheartguitarblog.com/2012/01/namm-2012-jackson-custom-shop-7-and-8-strings.html The 8-string prototype isn't the final version - the scale length will be increased and the string spacing widened - but this is something Jackson are putting out there to see...

    Hey! I'm at NAMM and I just stumbled across 8-string PAFs at DiMarzio. They're not on the website yet. The Deactivator is, of course, and they had it in a few colours here today. http://iheartguitarblog.com/2012/01/namm-2012-dimarzio-8-string-paf-and-deactivator-humbuckers.html

    I'm a fan of Tony MacAlpine and noticed (on MTV's "That Metal Show") that he was playing what appears to be a RG2228 with a tremolo unit. He mentioned in an interview that he got it from an Ibanez custom shop in LA and/or California. Any idea of the name of the custom shop and if so how much it...

    This is my LTD 8-String. Mahogany body, maple neck-thru, rosewood fretboard, 2x EMG 808s. Generally good condition - some buckle rash on the back and a scratch on the front. No fretwear and a straight neck. Reason for sale: I'm not sure I have use for an 8 - I got it in a trade and some things...

    So I just went to Rondo Music's website to look at some 8-strings and something caught my eye. Under the categories '9-String Guitars' was were 8-String Guitars used to be. Nothing is up on the page yet, but what do you guys think of the idea of a 9-String? Do you think it'll be a bassier string...

    Hey folks! This week I was super-spoiled when I got to interview Bob Taylor. I met Bob a few weeks ago at the Taylor factory in El Cajon, and we ended up doing the interview by phone this week (it was 6am for me back here in Australia, urgh!). Here's the link if you wanna check it out. It was...

    Hey everyone. Yesterday I interviewed Marten from Meshuggah and we had a great chat about a bunch of stuff, but perhaps most interesting of all was the news that the band is preparing to meet with Ibanez about doing a limited run of their custom 8-strings for the public! Here's the link to the...

    The Backstory As many of you who know me or chat with me on other forums, this is something that has been in the works for over 6 months. It was at that time I decided I'd like to give the RG8 another shot. I really liked how the RG8 played, but really hated how noisy, overly compressed...
