    Since I have barely seen any new 8s at NAMM 2019 I thought I'd make a thread to collect everything new, maybe something went under my radar.

    We have the RG5328 and RG80E

    and the new Cort multiscale

    Is there any other new production 8 string?
    Schecter - no, ESP - no, Jackson - no, ... I'm a bit disappointed :rant:

    The new Standard line? The Per Nilsson model has not yet been announced as available for sale, has it?
    From what I've this is no production guitar, more like a semi custom shop thing. And from what we've seen so far I'd rather be careful and not throw money at them unless it's an already produced guitar one can try before buying.
    Yes, totally agree. You have such a hard time finding the best color for your Lamborghini, I have such a hard time finding my perfect 8 string :noplease:

    There was the Sarah Longfield, as well as the True Temperament and neck-through Bodens.

    the rain soaked post industrial wasteland known as
    Not 100% it counts but Jackson respecced the multiscale 8 they introduced last year.

    I think he edited the post, if you look at my quote of the post you see it. Anyways, personally I'm more looking at something higher quality. In that price range I'd rather look for something used. Which I might do anyway.

    Does anyone know how much the Corts go for? I haven't been able to find pricing anywhere.

    That Lambo orange Ibby is gorgeous.

    Not a lot, as they're supposed to undercut similar Ibanez, Schecter, LTD, etc.

    They don't seem to be for sale yet.

    The 7-string fanned model from last year went for about $750.

    No, my problem is real, and it’s a matter of serious importance that could threaten the very nature of reality. Yours isn’t. The yellow is growing on me, maybe you need to check out an Abasi.

    Oh yeah I totally understand. I'd suggest you to have a look at a green one, green has always be a favourite of mine. And then you could get an Ibanez RGR5227MFX with the matching color so you'd also have a great guitar, wouldn't that be awesome? :hbang:

    Thanks for the tip, I've already seen the yellow Abasi and while I liked the color I've heard from hearsay that the build quality might be similar to the Misha Mansoor Bulb Attack overdrive and if that is true then the guitar costs like 10 times as much as what other of similar quality cost. If the Abasi Larada was around 300€, it could be some serious competition for the Harley Benton multiscale 8 though :djent:

    That prestige RG is very tempting. I still miss my old 2228a and this one doesn't have a hideous burl top.

    Thoughts on the new 8 from Ibanez? Personally not keen on that finish for some reason. I like the 652 with a very similar finish, but the 8 string one is just not my favourite (looks kinda worse in person maybe.. not sure).
