Has anyone tried one of these? No one seems to mention them.
Its got the Stephens cutaway for upper fret access (like the N4)

Thoughts?

the Proto on Ebay looks like the pu's were mounted for a 25.5 scale.

Someone who bought a proto said it wasn't really good at all, so it was probably just a test batch or something.

I definitely see what you're gettin at. The 808's do seem rather close together considering the 28" scale. The front pickup is awful close to the fretboard as well. It looks like a 28" neck bolted on to a body with 25.5" bridge placement and pup routing (perhaps not really 28"?)... or something :scratch: It only has 24 frets....

IDK. I'd have to pick one up then measure it :lol:

I kinda liked my old Washburn VW16 G11. I'd definitely be interested in tryin one of these out :hbang:

I thought the Washburn 8-string was 27''?

But yeah, the pickups ARE really close together, while the mockups they posted showed them far apart.

I do like the headstock on these...although if it was reversed it'd be perfect.

Anyone know how much these are gonna sell for?
