wow holy crap, i wonder if it falls under one of those legal issues of paying for what was advertised lol, although this isn't walmart and this is an immensely huge mistake price wise, still i wonder if you pay in full and they renege you could take it to court. although that would def be a massively epic dick move on anyone's part lol

what a fresh new opinion on this guitar.

...Each guitarist has an evil fat 40 year old blueswankler trying to get out, If you give in to temptation you'll be sitting next to a fender playing john lee hooker while trying to keep your combover in place.

These haven't shipped yet. I heard that the first ones go out in May and the rest in June. I cant wait to get mine. I feel like its totally gonna be worth every penny for the quality and scale length alone. The tone on these things is going to be uncanny! Im only paying $1400 more for mine that it would cost to get an ESP Stef B-8. Its expensive and yeah im totally gonna have to sell a couple guitars I dont want to sell but theres really nothing else out there available with the quality and specs provided. Most companies wont even make a 29.4" scale guitar, and definitely not by May or June!

Are they also using a different way of measuring it for these guitars? from strings exiting the nut to the 12th fret X2 VS all the way to the furthest intonation point (30.5"?). i assume the standard 25.5" scale is measured using the first method then, and that you can intonate the strings further out?

I mean, if you have an inch of intonation space then obviously 30.5" is doable to make out the last measurement.

The "scale length" is going to be dictated by the fret placement measurements (and vice-verse), not necessarily by where the saddles are, as they will change (intonate) under different tunings and gauges.

So..to reiterate again from my article: The scale length is determined by the measurement from the upper terminal end of the string's vibration point (where the string meets at the nut) to the center of the 12th fret (1st octave) - and then doubling that measurement. In this case, and as with most of the LACS customs (incl. the new M8M signature's) it measures as 37.5 cm X 2 = 75 cm, or exactly 29.52750" scale to be precise. Which can be rounded off to calling it basically 29.5 - not 29.4", if we really want to be anal about it...but close enough though

And that, when using this measurement method, is what your actual "scale length" is.

My $0.02: Based on my discussions with some of the guys at Hoshino USA, there are 2 main reasons why the M8M is being made by Sugi Guitars: 1) the guys wanted a faithful re-creation of their LACS instrument, 2) the demand isn't expected to be high enough to warrant a full on Fujigen production run. From what I've read in the Ibanez Untold Story book, Fujigen is all about quality while being cost-effective. An 8-string, neck-thru, 29.5 inch scale guitar with a transparent finish is not cost-effective. I would imagine that Ibanez would have to make and sell hundreds of these guitars to turn any sort of profit. By going with Sugi, Ibanez can insure that they make a profit on each instrument while staying true to the LACS design. If you really want one, there it is. If not, no sweat off Ibanez's back. Also, by making each guitar as it's ordered, Ibanez can rest assured that these guitars won't end up sitting unsold at a warehouse to be sold at a lower price, which is a smart move from a business standpoint.
