Pretty sure it's just glare/blur from the string.
Definitely a prestige label, I think.

Poor guy. I hope it clears up soon.
And I see the overhang from the P and G on the headstock
The low D tuning is sweet imo. Check it out
It is the Prestige. I have a RG90 sitting at home right now and this looks to be it.
Funny enough, the M8M/M80M have longer scale necks, so if they wanted to tune lower, their own models would be a better choice. This looks just like a promo shot to me, just Ibanez being like "let's put our two ERG pioneers in a photo with the ERGs we have to offer".
Hasn't Fredrik said something like 8 is enough for us?
I just want my Meshuggah post-Metal album.
I find it kind of funny that he's got a 9 string that has more range than his 8, but is a shorter scale.
The bridge on that one looks cheap and flimsy.
Yeah look at how far back the saddle is for that 9th string..
And I tune to D on my 30in 8..
The bridge is simple, yet solid. The RG90 is extremely high quality and Ibanez have made a few tweaks to make this thing as "fast" as possible. It is very lightweight, too.
Cool guitar. I'd have a hard time not keeping it if I'd need the range for my music.
I would not be surprised if Meshuggah didn't receive some of these to play around with. So who knows, maybe we can get some 9 string music from Meshuggah soon.
If meshuggah does start using them it will sure help propel sales... heres hoping!
I found out Meshuggah got at least one RG90 from Ibanez, so I think that is in fact the very guitar.
Still not sold on the short scale.
The low budget Meshuggah sig model still interests me though.
Electric Wizard already posted a link with this visible, but here's one photo from shitsøn's own camera of the two 9's he currently has....
I"m surprised no one mentioned Fredrik playing a 9 over 2 years ago. (2:24 in this video)
Last I checked, Fred had actually scaled down to 27" for his 8's on account of it being more comfortable I presume. Don't remember where I read that they were scaling down, but I do remember some customs he was having made that were @ a 27" scale. Marten is notorious for not really caring about gear and thus basically just plays whatever Fred spec's out from what I've seen. Again, not sure if they did in fact scale down completely or if they just had a few one-off's in 27" for specific purposes made.
It's only the pair of 8 string Stonemen/Stonemans that are 27". I think their tech said in a rig rundown that Fredrik preferred the shorter scale, but I might be wrong on that. Thrown in with something about testing a lot of string gauges to get a good compromise of the shorter scale feel, and tension of the 29.4".
You're right about Marten, though.
Yup, that's where I heard it. That rig rundown from some time back, thanks!
Unless you know him personally, you might want to be careful making presumptions about what Marten really thinks about gear or not. I can tell you otherwise, and that he has very definite ideas and own opinions on gear. It's just offset that Fred is a serious gearhead, but ludicrous to say Marten just isn't into gear. Wrong.
