    If it would have been neck through, it would have been a home run. I'm not complaining, though, because even as is, it's one of the coolest production 8 strings available. The 29.4" scale is really cool too.

    Edit: and a Lundgren? Is this a fake?

    There's no way this is real...

    But if it is...
    Well I sure won't get one, but DANG IBANEZ, GOOD MOVE.

    Bah!! Was hoping it would be neck through. Not unreasonable given that the btb7 has it and is cheaper. Still, likely gonna grab one used. :yesway:

    I know right, it looks fake as fuck, but I can't see why the shop would put up a fake listing...

    I call shenanigans - The only visible difference is this has a bolt-on neck and different body/neck woods, and that, to me, doesn't justify such a massive price difference.

    Well that seems to be the Australian currency, probably will be cheaper in the states if this is real.

    Well if this is real it'll be built by the Premium factory and not by the Sugi crew and the quality of wood, finish, and fretwork will be different.

    At first I was hoping this wouldn't have the Lundgren in it to keep the price down but I realized I would probably throw one in anyway :lol:

    Well, some of us thought the RG8 was fake when we first saw it, so it might be real... Ibanez is notoriously shitty with their stock photos. :lol:

    IF this is real, I'm extremely surprised they'd be able to mass-produce Lundgrens like that, unless this is a limited edition.

    Perhaps the "P" in the pickup's name is representative of a larger scale production M8. That being said, it's not like they're going to be pushing thousands of these out the door immediately, and it's possible they [Ibanez] could have been stockpiling M8s for some time to get ready for production.

    Pickups aren't like custom guitars, or guitars in general, typically the turn around isn't too bad. Conklin seems to stock them pretty easily.

    Even if that Ad is not totally legit I wouldn't doubt that they would do something like this. They would sell a lot more of these than the real deal M8M. Yeah if it's $2000 or less your not gonna get a neck through. They just don't do that kind of stuff for that price point even though they really should. Ash body/30"scale/Lundgren....plus that fixed bridge. It's pretty win!

    Oh I pray this is real. With the long scale and lundgren too! This is gonna be a hit. If it isn't real, the guy who made it is a scumbag.

    Basically I wouldn't be running out to ditch my RG2228 just for something like this. Maybe if I didn't already own the Prestige 8, but quality wise just for those features I wouldn't trade my Prestige for a Premium.

    Makes sense, with Meshuggah being such a popular band these days, putting out a "discount" version of the signature model is a good move.
