    One of the reasons I don’t think I’d really like an 8-string is that I’m not terribly fond of extended scale lengths. Tuned to standard pitch on the top strings, the top strings sound a bit zingy, and I spend the vast majority of my time on the top six strings.

    A multiscales 8 might help that, but there aren’t many options for a tremolo then.

    One likely and reasonable scenario is that I get an LTD 1008M and if I actually end up playing it, I can throw a Kahler on it.
