    It's an ARZ for sure, just not an off-the-shelf one.

    Looks like it has a longer scale (guesstimating), plus a full ToM/stoptail instead of just the ToM.

    cool, always kind of wanted the ARZ8 if that's what he's using. If I could get an 8 string xiphos I would die a happy man.

    The proportions on that are hilarious in an awful way. I really dig the anesthetic and specs, and LOVE the only script logo, but holy crap, even Gibson knew to size up the body a little when significantly enlarging the neck. :lol:

    Yeah TBH I'm not sure WTF is going on with the body. The upper part with the pick up selector looks like a normal sized LP shape but the bottom half looks sized up. It's really weird and lumpy looking

    The custom I'm planning will be the body outline/size of at least an ES-335 for that reason. I'm actually leaning heavily towards basically doing the shape of the Heritage Super Kenny Burrell archtops, but with a more appropriate lower cutaway and access and a much, much thinner solid body as opposed to hollow body.

    Still, cool guitar.

    It's pretty much the ARZ neck joint, just widened like crazy for the wide neck relative to body.

    The new ESP/LTD 8-string Eclipses look much better, but I suspect their scales are shorter.

    I like it alot tbh. I loved my arz307 except for the scale length. I presume this resolves that.

    I would jam on it.

    Kinda has a Gibson Nighthawk vibe. Not really my thing but pretty cool. Also I didn't know Fredrik was playing a strandy!
