    Hey guys! This is just a thread im starting cause im sort of bored and Im thinking of going for an 8 string. I have been wanting an 8 string for a while, but never found the right one for me.

    I used Schecter but didnt like it. The neck was too thick and i didnt like the overall vibe and feel for it.

    I used Ibanez but they only have 2 of them. The RG2228 is great but i would like a longer scale and cheaper price. RGA8 is great too but like i said, i would like a longer scale.

    I tried ESP 8 strings, but i dont like the pickup placement on the Carpenters, and the 408 has a 25.5 in scale, which is too short.

    I dont know of many more I can recall.
    I think something awesome would be basically Marten Hagstrom's guitar. Its everything perfect in a guitar i think.

    Agile offers some single pickup 28"+ scale 8's.

    Other than that just about any luthier/CS doing 8's can make you a guitar similar to that of the guys from Meshuggah.

    Wow you are correct. I have never seen a more Meshuggah looking Agile. And it is a 30 inch scale.

    OP, go for this. :yesway: My friend has an 828 Intrepid and it is great.

    I've got to agree w/ you. Looks like it was applied w/ a sponge or something.

    There are Intrepids with Ebony boards, they just might not have any in stock at the moment in that particular color/pickup configuration, but they do exist.

    You should e-mail Kurt, though keep in mind they don't do custom orders, unless it's through the custom shop which is something else entirely.

    Try out the stock pups before you drop your money on some replacements. You might like them.

    Press add to basket. Than it will take you to your basket and it will say on the very top of the page that the guitar is out of stock.

    FWIW I grabbed that hours before I saw it talked about on here. I saw it available early yesterday afternoon and actually was hesitant at first. I don't need another guitar but what sets that one apart is the RW board, they are usually maple, so I figured... I'll let it go for now and if it's still there later tonight it's meant to be and I'm snagging it. A good 7 hours passed by the time I went back and found it still available, which is usually plenty of time for it to be taken if you're familiar with how fast the rouge guitars posted for sale on rondo go. Then I came here a few hours later and saw this thread, so technically not Ninja'd, but still :)
