    Let the gossip begin.

    It was only a matter of time anyways. There's a handful of their songs where they are tuning that low, so the 9 string makes sense.

    This just a little commercial for Ibby Germany.
    "Hey guys we have a 9 string now and Schecter is scaring us for 2015, could you just grab this shit, we must be the number 1 of ERG"
    Marten is holding a crappy RG9, I think if he really has a 9 string for the future of Meshu, it will be a damned 31' inch LACS that we'll see for 7000 $, "THE M9M".
    Now I'm little disappointed, I thought these guys will be clever. They are the bosses, even in F they sound so much heavy and evil than Drop C (Within The Ruins ATB) boyz.
    Ok for Spasm and its Bb0 BUT, it's not because every little djent bands play lower tuning than Meshu have to come back next year with a 10 string in GO.
    I like they F since 2002, it's their sound, like Devin Drop G, Korn A standard etc.... I don't want a Meshuggah too low, I'm not diggin a note under F on guitars, even with Tosin and his E I find it's just a fart undefined ungroovy flubby note.
    I have an 8, I don't play under F, it's my choice, otherwise I have a Fender Bass VI if I want a real low E and a Stingray 5 strings for under. For each tuning, an instrument adapted.
    Opinion of a selfish basterd who likes to much Meshuggah since Nothing.

    I can't speak for anything else in this block of text, but Devin doesn't use "Drop G", it's open C with a low G on sevens.

    Word on the street was that Fredrik had ordered a 9 string Vik a couple years ago so this isn't too surprising, assuming that Marten is gonna use it and not just holding it for an ad.

    Yeah, Fredrik's Vik is to be an 8.

    Is it just me, or does that 9 string say Prestige? I know they were both at Messe and NAMM where the RG90 was, so I imagine this was taken then. I'm told Marten isn't real that big into gear.

    Why can't they just use their 8's in a lower tuning for that? Meshuggah doesn't need extra strings :lol:

    Yeah, I see something. Hang on...

    Yeah, under the strings.

    Let's look a little closer...

    But for serious it does look a bit like there might be a "Prestige" label hiding under the string pulls.

    On the very top of the head stock above the Ibanez logo. I can sort of see it, but it might just be a smudge on the lens.
