    I'm ashamed to say it but I think I've only played on my one less than 10 times since buying it !
    I guess I haven't spent enough time with any of my guitars for the last few years anyway but I don't think I found a tuning that my brain can get used to yet. I'll have a look around and see what comes up.
    Probably go up in the FS section in the next week or so :rant:

    The tuning I most enjoyed on my M80M was a half-step up from F#BEADGBE. I don't know why, But that really worked for me.

    My favorite tuning is EAEADGBE. It just lets me play riffs one octave down on the lowest two strings.

    I just found out the other day that mine is fretting out on the 5th fret high E. Just thst one fret... not sure if one of them is too high or it just needs a truss rod or bridge tweak

    I've been messing around with an alternative tuning lately, and been enjoying it alot. I usually tune 1 whole step down standard. If your bored, give this a whirl, DADGDF#AD. Fun for low riffs, and pretty useful for droney long delay/reverb ambient stuff.

    Well I had a very heavy bottom, i think it was a 90 or bigger....NO problem..in fact, the M8M feels like youre supposed to accomodate whatever the biggest you can handle -

    Actually, i might put mine up for sale because I am starting to really want to just play my custom shop at this point, so if anyone wants an M80M, PM me

    Just noticed something interesting about the M80M that never caught my eye before. There's no volute! All my other Ibanez guitars and basses have a volute, but the back of the neck on the M80M is pretty flat at that spot.
