that uneven gap between the bridge pickup and the tremolo is disgusting
Haha, everyone knows you can't sell cabs.
Just explain the joke. That's funny.
they should have the bridge PU slanted like the bridge, not like the 24th fret/neck PU
Did anyone on the forums get one? Design is top notch.
I really like the slanted bridge and fanned frets. EBMM should do their regular 6 and 7s that way too. It just gives the guitar an amazing look.
+1. I love it when the pickups actually follow the fan. I know some people say the tone difference is negligible, but the design is not. And if you're going to design a high end multiscale guitar, why would you not want it to flow that way? It's not as bad as the strandbergs with straight pups, but I'd still prefer a more fanned bridge pup on this.
No, no, fixed bridge fans! Sit back down. At least for 8s. We need waaaay more trems on 8s.
And my personal feeling is that if you're going for World's Biggest Bridge, then go ahead and make it a trem. I'd go bonkers if this were designed with a Hantug trem.
I would seriously dig his string spacing on a multi scale bass.
/stereotypical sso spec discussion
The design on this looks a lot better than what I was expecting. I wonder if they'll make more since this batch sold out instantly.
I don't hate the bridge design, but I hate anything in plain chrome with no black accenting. As a wanky lead guy the fan makes total sense to me. Good spec
definitely not as far as 8-strings are concerned, hard disagree. huge missed opportunity making it a hardtail imo
Trems are cancer, and the guitar world is quickly metastasizing.
Based solely on the fact I can’t seem to find many 8 options with 25.5-27 fans, I think I should probably pull the trigger if there are any left.
Because at least the Schaller supposedly does something. Its design has a functional justification, like how no one complains about the size of the Edge III FX on the earlier Ibanez 8s because it had functionality.
The Majesty trem on the other hand is already just a more ornate (needlessly big) version of the bridge on the JP guitars and those are all whammy bars. This is just a big bridge that is adding to the cost and nothing to the functionality, instead of a single saddle modular bridge design.
Guitar looks sick! Great specs! I ordered! Fan is solid, bridge design is great and the piezo switch is gold
Multiscale definitely works well with the Majesty shape
Already see they're sold out on the website.
Did it go on sale already? I thought this was just an announcement. Living in a completely other worldy timezone apparently I was hours to late to try buy one. Advanced announcement would have been nice to let people get their sh*t together. Who got one?
It went up for sale about 30 hours ago with the announcement. Seemed to sell out some time in the last 12 hours.
Yup all out. Just wait a month for them to hit reverb at dumb prices when people realize not everyone likes 8 strings. I will be waiting.
If you want an 8 string hardtail, you literally have hundreds of choices already at or below this price point. If it had a trem and you wanted it, but didn't want to use the trem, you could very simply just not use the trem or even block it. You're entitled to your opinion, but I disagree, and therefore, your opinion is bad.
Still waiting for a Stef B8 shell pink trem release
