    They just look small because they are far away.

    Joking aside, do any Babymetal songs even use a 9 string?

    It looks pretty, but a 28" fixed scale 9 string just sounds like a nightmare unless you're going to tune it in a non-standard fashion. I don't know a thing about Babymetal though - is that something they do?

    Gotta have a gigantic string to get to C# without spaghetti when you play it on 28". I do like the body design, though. Maybe they'll do an LTD version and I Can find out.

    Yeah when it's a 28" scale, it's not nearly long enough on the low end. Didn't this community decide that in like 2013 when I started reading SS?

    Also these.





    Also, from what I could gather from the guitarists in the band, they probably used the Hellraiser 9 model to track these, which had a 28in scale. I'd still want at least 30in on a 9, but the guitar tracks sound really good regardless.

    To bad it's like $3k. It looks like it would be really fun to mess around on.

    Yeah... for $3k I probably would spend that only on something I thought I'd use a lot. This probably isn't that.

    At least they are giving a transparent deadline so we all can muse on it for a while.

    The Agile 9 strings are about $700. hudge difference, but they're neck thru's.

    Yeah. I need to buy that Baby Metal album and see if any of it really sticks with me.

    Haven't heard to much Baby Metal, but the musicians are incredible players from what I have heard.

    Didn't realise Elevator Girl used one as well. I just assumed it was a distorted bass. Sweet. :yesway:
