Pickups for 8, 9 and 10 string guitars are now available from Lace. They are based on the custom Tone Bars that are in Tosin's Strandberg and Celticelk's O.A.F 8 string. They should be hitting their website in the next couple of weeks. If you're thinking of ditching your actives in your current axe or having a custom guitar built definitely consider trying out a set of these. They fit standard EMG routs and are in my opinion the best ERG pickup available. Please contact me through my yahoo email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in ordering a pair.
