I emailed kurt back and suggested that if production goes through on the natural/maple sketch, then he also produce a darker version for us metalheads who are afraid of anything that isn't black he seemed to like the idea.

strange
iv never really been interested in 8 string til i saw this thread
mainly the price for what it is!
Kurt sure does know what hes doing with the "keeping it cheap" thing
Got me interested enough to properly concider it

I'd hit that, but same as the LTD, I'd rather a 4/4 headstock. And that inlay sucks.

When you say darker, are you talking about color or about tone ?

^666th post!

Kurt is indeed pretty awesome. I don't know how he makes these instruments and still turns a profit. But you know what? I don't care! As long as he keeps on doing it!

And let's not forget how awesome the guy is who started this whole process...

Kurt gave me a complete lack of timespan. Basically it all depends on when and if he can get the 808s and the Hipshots easy and cheap.

He could always go with EMG 40 Hz's in the meantime they're much cheaper, and then people can just replace it if they feel like it.
