25.5" scale on an 8-string seems too short for doing low tunings. Maybe they're aiming it more at those that want to add an extra low and high string.

Then again, i was pleasantly surprised at the clarity of the 27" Ibanez 8, so maybe it'll work after all. I'm looking forward to seeing the final specs and pricing.

"FM" seems like an odd model designation. That type of body with that type of headstock would usually be an "H" type of guitar.

I just tuned my sixer to F# with a leftover .68 on it and it sounded fine to me, but I prefer the kind of flubbiness you get that way

I have no problem with plain steel strings for my 30" guitar - GHS are long enough, even crappy Presto are long enough You can also ask Polinski to make few for you. I always do that.

There really isn't anything wrong with 27" for an F#. Anyone who needs more obvoiusly doesn't intend to ever play any lead on it

My 8 is actually 25.5 - I've used both the low f# (floppy but usable) and a high A on it. If i do another one, i'll probably fan it.

ESP probably saw the chance to put out reasonably priced 8's for a multitude of users. Almost anyone who thinks of ESP 7's usually thinks of the SC's or the runs of H307/H207's. Jazz players looking for an affordable 8 probably got their wish with the 25.5 scale H series, and the metal players got their baritone 8 with the SC series. Considering the price points speculated on both of the LTD models, ESP has made a brilliant marketing move. Now, if they offer them in something other than black, that would be super awesome instead of just awesome.

I didn't read thru the entire thread, but here's the scale lengths in stone from ESP's page.

"The new ESP STEF-B8 and LTD SC-608B are new neck-through-body 8-string baritone guitars with a 27" scale."
"A brand new addition to the line, the LTD FM-408, is a unique standard-scale 8-string guitar model...."
