Now for sale! Sooner than I thought, and I JUST bought a new (Agile) guitar, and will unveil it very soon. I need an 8 before I get a 9 also, but I will be trying to scrape up the $$ for this....somehow.




$695 ain't bad at all for that. :metal:

Is it an extra high string or a low string?

Seriously though, alot of djent kiddies are gonna have to put off purchasing their axe fxs and powered monitors to get their hands on one of these.
It's actually sent with a neat tuning - the low three are bass guitar E-A-D, and the high 6 are a regular guitar E-A-D-G-B-e. Obviously you can tune it as you wish, but I can say for a fact it will be hell getting a high A on the top string.

That's actually kind of cool. Would make a great tapping instrument. I wouldn't know what to do with it, but that tuning really makes sense... I was expecting some high A or low C# gymnastics or something.

EDIT: :lol:

It seems like as guitars get more strings, less notes actually get played. 8s were bad enough with F# 7 times in a row and then one G.

I hope kids don't buy this, tune it as low as strings allow, and have an album of 40 minutes of breakdowns and deem themselves the most brutal thing ever.

I've got a great idea for a new guitar company for all the new br00tal arteests out there. We'll ditch all the extra strings, we'll go with say 4-5, then tune it to something wicked like a B1 (even more br00tz than a standard-tuned 9) and stretch the scale length waaay over 30" for some sick djenting. What do you guys think, 34, 35 inches?

Who's in with me?

And we can take it even further and create a whole new type of amp to handle such low tunings! We are on to something. I'm gonna beat you to the patent office!:p
