    Neat. I like it - it's Meshuggah on a budget.

    Okay Does anyone recall the "What do you wish SX would make next" thread a few weeks ago? Which one of you guys said "An 8 String guitar" Huh? It does look pretty cool doesn't it?

    What is tuned to? Standard guitar tunings with a low B and F# or something?

    Judging by the string gauges, I'd say yes.

    8 string guitars have been around for quite a while now. you see them in metal from time to time, i think Nile has used them...

    Hmm I don't listen to much Nile. I know that Nevermore and Korn have been using 7-string guitars for ages. I wasn't aware there were 8 strings though. :meh:
