I was looking on Dean Guitars website and I saw this dean "Modifier" ML 8 string. Dean Electric Guitars-Acoustic Guitars-Bass Guitars Mahogany Top/Body • 26-1/2" Scale • 54mm Nut • Set Mahogany "Slim D-Shaped" Neck • Ebony Fingerboard • Pearl Dot Inlays • Grover Tuners • Black Hardware • Tune-O-Matic Bridge • EMG 808 Pickups • Tuning - F# B E A D G B E • Finishes: Classic Black The scale length looks too short to go down to a looow range for me. On my Shecter 7 string I use a 26.5" scale length for Drop A, 56-10's, and thats basically perfect. However, would it be feaseable with this dean ML to tune it to Drop A with a extra high A string or wutnot? My concern would be with the extra scale it'd increase the tension on the string making it more likely to break. That would be interesting. All the dean 7's are only 25.5", which is what I prefer for my "Normal" guitars. Balls. This instrument would look badass on stage. Scenekids "OMGZ HE USES 8 STRINGS SOO BROOTZ" Musos's "OMGS HE USES 8 STRINGS TUNES WITH EXTRA HIGH STRING SO TECHZ" Best of both worlds really.
