    Sii-8 8 Scale Guitar

    8DC orders are now open until April 7th

    Go here for more information and/or to place a deposit. Please email Rob for a detailed quote BEFORE paying the deposit :lol:

    8DC 8 string guitar


    Both 8DC and 8 Scale runs will be happening with orders accepted the first week of April.


    KxK is highly customer-driven and Rob has received a lot of inquiries recently about 8 string guitars. Interest has been in two areas, the 8 Scale and an 8DC. I talked to Rob about it a bit and here's the deal. He's willing to do a run of either IF there are 5 people willing to take part in either run.

    8DC around $3k base price, single color flat clear etc etc
    8 Scale around $4k base price, single color flat clear etc etc

    Deposits would be around $1000

    8DC would probably be HH, 28" scale (all builds would be the same scale)

    8 Scale would be identical to the previous run (25.5"-28")

    ONLY VOTE IN THE POLL IF YOU HAVE THE $ AND WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PLACING AN ORDER.

    PLEASE POST TO THE THREAD IF YOU VOTE SO I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND CAN LET YOU KNOW IF THE RUN(S) HAPPEN :lol:

    I know this isn't very helpful, and I've annoyed interest threads doing this before....but I'd want an 8DC, just not $3k badly. I'd no doubt throw him my cash if it was something like $2.3k. I'm sure other people would do the same, and we could get more in the run?

    It was clearly stated what the ballpark price for the runs would be. If you're not interested please don't waste everybody's time.

    How nice of you.
    Rob works for free, and you get a kick ass guitar for a very very good price uh?

    I´m sorry, but people should really, really start to lower their expectations.
    Maybe customs aren´t for whoever wants them?

    Stop bitching about money all the time, either you´re in or you´re not.

    This is my bad temper day.. :evil:

    2 questions.

    -Any time frame guesstimate?
    -Is there any possibility of a compromise? Like an 8 scale with the dc body?

    - no build estimates on these
    - no, it's one or the other

    Definately interested in a scale 8, it'd be nice if it didn't coincide with my strandberg build starting in a year or so but I'm sure I'd get over it. Let us know how it goes yo :yesway:

    I am interested. But, I just commissioned another 7 from him because I didn't think he would be doing 8's anytime soon:scream:.

    So it's really going to depend on the timing of when deposits will need to be in on whether or not I'll be able to jump in on this one.

    I have a scale 7 in the works but oh man a scale 8 is so tempting. Only thing is Id like to know is when the cutoff date might be for placing the deposit. If its a ways off then that increases my chances of committing. And what body style for a scale 8?

    The 8 Scale is the same as the previous run, there's a NGD thread for one from the last run here

    http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/extended-range-guitars/190572-kxk-sii-8-8-scale-photo-thread.html

    Not positive on how long orders would be open for, probably a couple weeks from the start date (which will be sometime after 5 people willing to place a deposit show up :lol:)

    "base price" is for basic stats, so maple or mahogany neck, mahogany or alder wings, maple or ebony board. Other stuff like figured tops would be available for an upcharge (had somebody else ask about that in a PM).

    8DC for me.

    It would also depend on if he offers upgrades like fret board woods & tops like the previous 8 scale run.

    If it happens there would be options like different fretboard woods and figured tops for upcharges.

    Of course lol. Being that there is no way I could afford this, I feel it is worth noting that this is a good deal. I don't understand the mentality of "this is too expensive for me to afford so it isn't a good deal."

    Being said, I demand people vote for the Multiscale one. I wish to see the finished product!
