    I'd buy one instantly if there were. But, I'm going to guess that there won't be, because the world hates us 8 string Floyd lovers.

    BC rich seems like a company crazy enough to actually do something (gasp) out of the ordinary and not mainstream

    Holloway is it you that has been asking for an 8 string with Floyd for 2.76+ years? Time to pony up brah. Time to put your titanium block where your mouf is.

    It is really amazing how much better a black cherry quilt veneer abalone hellraiser would look just by changing the cross inlays to diamonds.

    Oh man. I've been wanting a Stealth almost as much as a Warlock II. Will be keeping my eye out on these for sure.

    i hope they stop using abalone. Abalone should be left in 2002. But I welcome this comeback for 2019. Nice to see more pointy guitars!

    They even confirmed the return of the Chuck schuldiner Stealth in a comment on instagram.

    Normally I don't care when a guitar does or doesn't have pickup rings

    But this looks so much better without them.

    Haha, yes, it is. I died a little inside when I saw all the abalone, but I’d still buy one if the price isn’t ridiculous. My Agile 8 is the only Floyd 8 I’ve ever played, and it’s the best $350 I’ve spent. I’d love a higher quality guitar to add to my collection of 1.

    How the fuck did you get an Agile with a Floyd!? All the 8s listed on their page have Kahlers

    Because they change options and models all the time as they get made.

    Fair shout. Still hanging out for the dream that is the Lo Pro 8. Sneaking suspicion that the heat death of the universe will come before that one.

    You haven't tried the hellraiser c8 fr? It's a legit guitar man, should give it a spin if you get a chance. Schecter just discontinued them so if ya want a new one, now's the time. Or just wait for this BC beast haha. I've never really even given BC Rich a look until now but as long as it's not hugely priced, I will have one of their 8s with Floyd.
