Here are a couple of pics. Can't wait to learn my scales down to another string smile.gif It's my first 8 string guitar. I traded my 1988 Kramer Focus (vintage axe, gonna miss it), a six string bass, and some cash. Just had to have this.

Great minds think alike! smile.gif I saw this and just had to have it. It's neck through body (the only one I own currently) and the sustain is just sick. Pair that with the active EMG's and it's just a MONSTER!

Wow, 8 strings! I already have too many with 6 laugh.gif
Congrats and enjoy!

By the way, I always wondered, do 8 string sets exist? And 7 string sets?
