So a hyperdrive 8, huh? Curious to see the proportions
Double the counterweights, though...that existing weight is 1.3lbs. I'm not sure how much weight it's displacing, but means that the 8-string will automatically be probably 1lb heavier than the 7-string, not even including the wider/heavier neck and fretboard wood and extra tuner, in the name of balance. You can take them out, and you can even order the guitar without the added weights and no cavity...but sheesh...not sure about that one. The weight is also not as far-out on the point, so it'll have much less of an impact.
Granted, this is a "prototype" and maybe their supplier can provide a low-volume production of a single, larger weight for a final production design...but, still.
Always happy to see their 8-string pointy headstock, though. It's not seen very often.
Holy beans!! That's a hit record!
Yeah, agreed. I wasn’t thrilled with the counter weight in the first place, much less two of them. But I’d LOVE an inline 8 HS! But I’d prefer the hyperdrive be headless, and let me put that badass HS on an Aries or something.
You just missed an in-stock less than a week ago.
"Only seen one 3 other models!"
Wow, what a selling point...
Seeing them hype up the "k logo" never fails to amuse me. Do they really think that's a big selling point for people?
But, it’s a k. That’s capitalized.
I did enjoy reading the comments on that Facebook post. Most of their posts get disturbingly overly positive responses, so this really stood out. 90% are "wtf is that" or "can you reverse it?"
When you can't tell if it's a meme or actual advertising copy.
It looks like somebody made a mini guitar out of a Washburn Dime neck. I can't unsee it now.
You might be on to something here
It would be for people who don't want to pay the $500 charge to not have the "Kiesel" name on it.
This is gold.
Damn. This made me just walked into my room and look at my DC800 (with the 4x4 HS) and shake my head at it like a disappointed father.
Is it like that to stop neck dive?
I WOULD ORDER HYPERDRIVE 8. NEED FOR MY TRIP TO THE MOON.
caps sorry guys. Been on the GME game too much
And if you've been long for a while, I'm sure you can afford to make quite a few Hyperdrive 8s.
