Mother of God! Nobody posted this yet? (8-string single-cut inside)

I'm absolutely amazed this isn't posted in here yet. DCGL has 12 of these badboys from a limited run.

(If it's already posted I'll cut myself. I used the in site search and Google with site:sevenstring.org )

I saw this earlier on Facebook when DCGL posted a status update about it. I love the color and finish but I'm not too crazy about the headstock. The neck and body appear to be really thick too (judging by the pic showing the back of the guitar)

I hope its doesnt have that rediculous 26.5" scale that all of their other 8 strings have.

Ok, that single cut is seriously hot (though the headstock could be better)

That's probably the first production 8-string I've actually gotten GAS over. I ....ing want that.

They also need to release a 7 in the exact same color

purple one needs a better headstock, and longer neck, no me gusta on the avenger though (seriously had one, cant stand the shape at all) what is it with shecter and using a short scale for 8's? would love passives in these though

Lost me with the headstock... it just looks a little too odd/generic.

Paperbag these ....ers and then we'll talk!!

+1. I saw that coffin 8 on the DCGL website and my immediate first thought was "that thing looks like a boat paddle with strings... who the hell would want to buy that ugly ass thing?"

Very good prices on those too. I could see myself ownin the purple one, as I have a purple fetish and a recent desire to try out an 8. I'll just wait for JJ to crack and buy an 8 sometime soon though. hopefully.

First, .... you

Second, these are seriously tempting me... I love my A-7 Elite. I could sell that and snag the A-8, basically the same thing but with one extra string. I can't see myself using it that much, would probably tune it up a bit, like low G# to high C# or something
