That brice would kick some major ass.... If they made that guitar they would sell loads of them! I haven't read through the whole thread, but what price would we be looking at?

I don't think PNG support is exactly a "cutting-edge" feature. Safari and Firefox (and probably Opera as well) have supported it for years. It's only Microsoft that has lagged behind.

I think the target price was around $600-800, but i don't think Kurt even got that far in its development to let us know if this would be possible.

That guitar looks fantastic aside from the short scale

so order a custom one.

ordering on with a different scale should only be a slight (maybe $100?) upcharge.

$600 for an 8-string (assuming they could put together something of decent quality, and I don't doubt it) is a great deal for you 8-string guys. You should see if you could get enough people to justify it. Kurt is doing it for 8 7-stringers to make a full run, why not try it for 8-stringers? See if you can stir up enough people... it's like half the cost of the Ibanez 8!

Rig: PRS -> Kemper -> Atomic CLR
First time in a while I've been THIS happy with my tone!

I've been thinking about it. If, when I have the cash, there is no Pro 27, and the upcharge isn't too bad, that's probably what I'll end up doing... unless, of course, this 8-string is looking like it's about to happen by then.

If I had enough extra money around when/if that comes out, I'd get one (27" scale), but I doubt I'll ever be able to save up that much extra cash

I am definitely on board for one of these. I'll even put up the money now!

I'd like to point out to Kurt that almost any 8 string that gets put up on ebay end up closing for a pretty high price. Take those 2 that were recently on there; the luthier was an unknown, but they still fetched like ~$1500 each. There would definitely be demand for these.

Plus, how many people browsing the Rondo website would see that an 8 string is available and, without ever considering it before, decide to order one based on its affordability and Rondo's reputation for quality instruments?

Longer scale though! (at LEAST 28 5/8")

My old 25.5" 8-string worked just fine, so I'm down for a non-baritone version.

i agree with shannon here. Not all of us who want to try an 8 string want to tune to F#.

(I realize on page 3 of this thread, i thought 28" or whatever was cool, but that was a year ago, and i realized i'd rather tune higher than lower)

If you list your gear in your signature, you're a prick.

Honestly I don't see this happening because minimum

Hiposhot fixed 8 string bridge = $104
EMG 808 = $110 each

so you're looking at $324 just for bridge and two pups which is probably WAY more than Rondo wants to pay for guitar parts. There just aren't any cheap eight string parts out there (cheap as in I would guess Rondo pays 1/3 of that or less for the parts on their current guitars/basses).

Kurt knows we're interested, and he knows what price point he needs to hit in order for this to be successful and profitable for him, so as far as i'm concerned, he'll let us know when it will happen.

And if i hear anything, you guys will be the first to know.
