Well, I was lucky enough to score this Oni 8-string guitar here on Sevenstring.org from Papa Shank, contact with whom will from now on always be followed by undying gratitude. This is the guitar of my dreams. For pics, check the classifieds. - Ziricote neck-thru; neck and wings are same material. Body is small, but comfortable. - 660mm-600mm fanned fret fretboard - Gotoh tuners - Bareknuckle pickups - 2 small volume pots that also act as push-button pickup kills Plays like a dream... it only took me a couple minutes to get used to it. Sweeping is actually even easier with the fanning, and pickup switching/blending can easily be done on the fly. If I ever win the megabucks, I'll buy a 2nd one with a regular-size body. My new #1 guitar, for certain.
