    Hey guys, yet another 8 string thread, (apologies) but im wondering, really the only thing keeping me from buying an Ibby RG8 or S8, (Oh, how I would love to have the S8QM) is the little voice in the confines of my mind that suggest that an 8 string should really have a locking bridge, Like the...

    Looks like they've updated their site to show all the 7- and 8-string offerings together; the number of models available has certainly expanded since I last checked. 7/8 String - Seymour Duncan All are available in these formats: And the MerEngland Nazgul demo for fun, in case you missed it.

    Some time ago, I ordered this baby from Ola, and the specs were ready from the get go. I picked this spalted walnut top at last year's Musikmesse, and thus the waiting game started as Ola diligently went through his builds, some of which at the same time as mine. Fast forward to this year's...

    Looking for new strings to try out, I usually really like d'addario but I am curious about trying the exl140-8 set. I know the tensions seem way off but I'm curious. The other option is grab some La Bella crazy eights, I remember liking the tensions but not the extra price and tone of the...

    As I'm having most of the "resident guitars" established by now, and some more neat stuff on its way to me, here's some axes for sale. Since I'm in the EU, pricing is in EUR. As for trades, I will not add cash on my end and safe for pretty awesome amps or FX units, all I see that could be...

    Half spam; There was a little show in Belgium last weekend where you could attend and play the S7G Solar series for a bit. Anyway among the demoing I played a 8-string song using a Cobra8 with 30.2" scale length. MASSIVE neck, you really had to dig into those strings. A totally mega masculine...

    Adam from Aura Guitars is a good friend of mine and has been filling me in step-by-step on this build. I'm actually blown away by how it turned out. It isn't done--I think it needs a new nut and the covers need to be finished--but that Myrtlewood looks awesome. I'll post the pictures he put...
