    Hey, since there were quite a number of people who wanted/nominated an 8 to be the GOTM,
    why not make a special once a year GOTM for 8 Strings in August?

    Since Aug = 8 and yadayada...



    :noway: or :yesway: ?



    just a suggestion :cool:

    An annual award in August for ERGs sounds awesome. Good idea!

    Someone should get eightstring.org and do a GOTM.

    GOTM is Dave's deal, so if he wants to do it, it's up to him.

    with that line of thinking, there shouldn't be standard and ERG instrument forums on this site either... :rolleyes:

    I believe he meant since SEVENstring.org was dedicated to having a guitar of the month related to SEVENS, someone could host the GOTM on a different forum. I don't think he was saying general discussion of said instruments shouldn't happen here. :2c:

    i know what he meant :). but since this site caters to standard and ERG players as well, a GOTM for 8 strings on the 8th month of the year sounds like a fun idea to me since there a quite a few badass 8 strings on here :shrug:.

    of course the idea could get out of hand like anything else... there would have to be 9, 10, 12, 11ty billion string GOTMs to please everyone :lol:.

    I still agree with Chris' reasoning the first time he was asked, which is we are site devoted to seven string guitars.

    I got the idea from the Jackson/Charvel forum. A lot of guys over there have some awesome instruments from other manufacturers, but you'll never see a GW, Wayne, or BC Rich take guitar of the month. I think that only makes sense. Besides, why stop at ERGs? There is a standard guitars section. There are bass and drum sections as well.

    Let's let the GotM reflect the focus of the site, OK? ;)
