I'll post this here first
During my latest visit to Meshuggah's studio, we decided to make a comparison vid showing the basic tonal differences between their trusty workhorse LACS RG8, the M8M signature, and the prototype of the upcoming new M80M signature model. The results are surprisingly similar, which demonstrates that despite the slightly different woods and bolt-neck construction involved with the new, lower priced M80M, the results were very consistent, no matter what settings we tried. It really represents a truly solid, workhorse Mesh sig using the same basic style, scale and Lundgren M8 pickup at an affordable price ratio. Good move Ibanez!
These guitars were tested through Mike Fortin's amazing and appropriately-named Satan head into an older JCM800 cab, which was dialed-in personally by Fredrik Thordendal just before the shoot to approximate their signature tone as close as possible.
I don't like to take myself too seriously, so we left in some goofing around and an unintended visit from my dog Niko too Please bear in mind the point was to showcase the tonal consistency between the 3 guitars and particularly the new M80M - not my lame playing, so easy on me guys. I'm a professional tech, not a player
