    kiesel does offer the hipshot trems on 8 strings. Obviously it's not going to be capable of the wankery that a floyd can handle, but it's another option for people that like trems :shrug:

    I see, I only asked about a floyd and didn't see any trem options on the dc8. Even just doing simple vibtato I find vintage style trems a bit too hard to keep in tune. Maybe they make 8 string wilkenson style roller nuts?

    I finally put in my Roamer 8 order today. I was tempted to not order one at all, and just wait for you to sell yours. :lol: But there are now going to be two sweet pink Roamers in the world!

    Your money is safer with OAF or Fast than a US Treasury bond. Tom and Kevin and great guys, and suuuuper honest and ethical. And their work is impeccable. Kevin does a lot of OEM work for Tom, so they work together a lot (which is actually how I found out about Kevin).

    If the guitar has a tune-o-matic bridge you'll run into neck angle problems. If it has a fixed one-piece bridge (Hipshot style), you will be fine. :)
