Difficult to believe that I’ve had mine for 4+ years.
Tabarnak! I would have bought it.... I paid like 400$ just in sale taxes.
I was honestly planning to have a bridge pickup installed in mine, before I got my hands on it and played it.
I don't want to change a damn thing.
I'm just recording a song with the M80M.
I just had to necrobump this thread. Fuck I love this instrument.
I've still been looking to pick one of these bad boys up. Even though I definitely don't strictly need it, it's just way too unique.
I'd have to be pretty damn broke to get rid of mine. The whole system just works so well together from the scale length, the bridge and it's position, pickup and how well the tone knob works, everything.
I absolutely love mine!
I will be joining the club later this week...
Well that arrived much faster than expected Can't wait to get home and play it. https://imgur.com/a/llM7XtQ
Anyone have some clips of how cleans sound with the M80M? Debating between one of these or a used 2228 or 852.
Based on my limited playing time yesterday I think it sounds pretty good clean. Obviously limited by only having a bridge pickup though. I'm definitely keeping my 2228 with Fishmans around as well.
Some before and after pics of my older modded M80M (on the left)
Gotta ask (since you posted a pic of it), how's that Halo you got there?
I honestly REALLY enjoyed this one! The issues I had were more to do with the chosen options, than it was build-quality. Case-in-point: I should have chosen the medium instead of Jumbo-XL stainless fret w/ 27 fanned frets; Once you got past fret 23....it really didn't matter anymore lol. I also didn't care for the Lace Deathbuckers. Again....those were selected options - the build quality was fantastic!
What kind of mods did you do?
If you notice the bottom photo, I had added/routed a single-coil Ionizer-8 pup at the neck position. It gave the voicing a killer almost twangy-tone when used for clean/solo parts.
Nice, got any recordings of that you could share here?
Ya man, I recorded this track with the M80M, but it's the solo at the end where you'll hear the pickups. I recorded the solo twice; one track using both the M8 & SC-8; then overlayed with just the SC-8.
Nice! killer track
Here's mine. I've own it for like, maybe 5 years? Didn't really feel the neck profile, as it had these big "shoulders", so I had a friend of mine shave it down a little. The neck was also stained black with a nitro lacquer and I added new tuning pegs to make it look more like the original M8M Fredrik uses. Luminlay side dots were also added.
And here's a song where it's being used:
