It could be one of those old single cut 8 string ibanez's, the arz?????

It's an ARZ for sure, just not an off-the-shelf one.

Looks like it has a longer scale (guesstimating), plus a full ToM/stoptail instead of just the ToM.

cool, always kind of wanted the ARZ8 if that's what he's using. If I could get an 8 string xiphos I would die a happy man.

The proportions on that are hilarious in an awful way. I really dig the anesthetic and specs, and LOVE the only script logo, but holy crap, even Gibson knew to size up the body a little when significantly enlarging the neck. :lol:
Yeah TBH I'm not sure WTF is going on with the body. The upper part with the pick up selector looks like a normal sized LP shape but the bottom half looks sized up. It's really weird and lumpy looking

The custom I'm planning will be the body outline/size of at least an ES-335 for that reason. I'm actually leaning heavily towards basically doing the shape of the Heritage Super Kenny Burrell archtops, but with a more appropriate lower cutaway and access and a much, much thinner solid body as opposed to hollow body.

Still, cool guitar.

I like it alot tbh. I loved my arz307 except for the scale length. I presume this resolves that.

I would jam on it.

Kinda has a Gibson Nighthawk vibe. Not really my thing but pretty cool. Also I didn't know Fredrik was playing a strandy!
