It could be one of those old single cut 8 string ibanez's, the arz?????
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.
I like his pajamas
a longer bari scale 8 string singlecut is exactly what i want in an 8 string, tbh.
A new model for him based on that would be sickkkk!!
I was just on a pajama forum, and one of the guys said he liked the guitar.
Just posted on the LACS instagram
Classiest 8-string ever!
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.
Block inlays are a no go
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.
Theres more photos of it on his Instagram, its pretty ugly IMO. Cool idea but yeah...
I really like the neck joint.
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!
