    You mean Bore, right?
    (Apologies for the Dad joke.)



    That reverse cockstock looks great.

    :agreed:

    I'm not really a cockstock fan, but it works beautifully here.

    Wondering myself too. I spent like 3 mins Googling didn't find out so I gave up on that.

    Anyone wanna measure their 9 string pickup cover and do some photoshopping measurements to estimate the scale length?

    Considering Schecter and Ibanez have production 9s and I'm guessing soon to be ESP/LTD based on this, it wouldn't be too far off. Hell Bareknuckle have been doing 10 string pickups on request.

    Fishman shared the pic on their Instagram page, so there's a possibility that they might mass-produce some 9-string pickups at some point.

    I've considered Bareknuckle, but I honestly don't trust passives at the tunings I'm in. Higher output passives, IME, tend to be either shrill in the high end or muffled in the low end when you get dialed in down at A0. My 909s actually work pretty well, but I like the idea of having a few different voicings in the same guitar at least for recording purposes, so some readily available Fluence 9-string pickups that fit active routes would be ( . )( . ).

    Anyone else thought that Deftones is now likely to become one of the 1st bands (if not the first!) to have gone more than one full octave below their initial tuning? :lol:

    They're not even a full octave below standard yet.

    As someone who loves 9s, I hope he helps open more people up to 9s, that way the market will expand for them. I'd love to have more readily available aftermarket pickups and more high quality 9s, specifically the return of the RG90, but without BKPs driving the cost up.

    If ESP makes a production model like the RG9 then I will literally buy it and replace my RG9 and get the fishman pickups as well ;)

    I hope its 30 inch scale but it's not my guitar so wutever. I'm going to guess its 28 inch scale. Could be 27... yuck I hope it's not though. 28 at least.

    I’m quite sure there’s a deep state conspiracy against Floyd 8s. There is no other reasonable expectation as to why the world won’t give me what I want. (Schecter and Agile, you get a pass. The rest of you? In my office. NOW!)

    Forget about an 8 string floyd with a piezo; that you just do yourself.

    I fucking wish that I could sit in on Deftones writing sessions, watch all three string players and the keyboardist figure out what a c is on every instrument haha
