    Looks like it's a maple neck, unfortunately. Still, I'll hopefully get one!

    Apart from the bridge, the mid pup and the coil tap switch, it's pretty much the same. (not sure for the original woods)

    I guess around the same price a the M80M or the Premium green dot UV7 so around 1100€/1500$

    I certainly hope not, since it's not a Premium by any means if the headstock just reads Ibanez. This would be a snazzy 8 string to get and try out the extra range with, definitely hope it's built as nicely as the other mid range Ibbies! :D

    Doesn't look very good from that picure, I'll reserve judgement until I see it in person.

    If this turns out to be a pretty affordable guitar I might actually want to check one out... It's not for me as far as specs go, but I'm sure I'd enjoy playing it.
