    Hantug will make a Lo-Pro 8, but get your wallet ready, you're looking at almost a grand.

    They're definitely cool!

    I don't buy the whole Titanium = Tone thing, at least from playing regular OFRs with titanium bits, and even the fancy full titanium OFR. But the Hantug look very, very well done.

    Your guitar, though, NEEDS to have it burried. Not because of any aesthetic reasons, but because look at how low your fretboard height is in relation to the top of the guitar. That's a pretty low-profile fretboard compared to some other guitars. your pickups are also way lower down in the body than on many other guitars. You almost couldn't even use pickup rings if you wanted to. :p If you surface-mounted a trem like you can on some other models, you'd end up with 1/4"h action. :lol:

    Yup my beast is a razor. in order to attain the neck thickness I wanted, lots of R&D was done. And no, no pickup ring will find its way on any of my guitars.

    I really dig the current iteration of the 8-string Floyd (granted it took a bit of work to get the piezo wire slots cut) and don't think there's much of a market for anything different. I have a VS100 on a 6 string guitar with a strange tuning and it works quite well - I wouldn't mind a Wilkinson 8 string trem to be honest.
