If you have the money, Blackmachine seems to be THE 8 string to have. Otherwise I'd go for the RG2228 for low definition due to the scale length - pity that a shortarse such as me has a problem with longer necks.

It shouldn't take long for the first "What's the point of an 8 string" post to arrive ;)

;) i know man! blackmachine 8 it's the way! good spec and normal price for a hand built 8 string! like you said, it's THE 8string! hehehe

-just a another one question.....
how it looks agile8??? it's VERRY cheep and that's making you believe that's a deal......
it's neck thru and also 28.625"!!!
the only think you need that is to change the pick ups to lundgren m8...​

so that's like an experiment!

I just tried the Schecter, and WOW!!! I felt like a little kid who didn't know how to play at all...

I didn't vote because I completely felt lost with the instrument, as I am old!! Good luck though!

the chinese dude from DragonForce uses a 8 string guitar for one of the songs in teh new CD.
i don't really like df :?

8string workin more on riffage....doesn't work on soloing....or sweeps and anw

i prefer the expensive series of 8.... it doesn't matter the brand...all you need it's good specifications! ;) i got anw the agile ;p no money...no honey....

saw the Ibanez at sam ash. wanted to play it but it was up near the sealing. im not sure if id buy one though since im getting tired of my 7, but its my only guitar thats completely assembled as of now. i think im switching back to 6's exclusively. but ill still whip out my 7 now and then.
