    If you had $2kUSD for a custom 8 string, what would you get?

    So if you had 2kUSD for a custom or semi custom 8 string, what would you go with. The lower 2k opens it up to used stuff obviously and some smaller brands. Keep in mind this is specific to a custom or semi custom although somebody is bound to miss the point and mention an Ibanez Prestige for...

    NGD - 2015 Carvin/Kiesel DC800

    So I’ve wanted a Carvin DC800 for years now but always had other stuff pop up or didn’t have the funds, etc. I had a few other 8 strings that I personally hated (usually the neck) for one reason or another (Agile Intrepid and an RG8) and ended up selling so I figured I’d finally get myself a...

Not looking for anything outside of these parameters as I’m looking to have this one as more of a workhorse guitar less studio. My daily is a Schecter SLS Elite (Ash/26.5) but the neck thru is touchy in dry...

    6 string bridge humbucker decision - Passive

    I’m rebuilding a Carvin Bolt I’ve owned for years to gear it more towards what I’m writing and I’m trying to decide on the bridge pickup. I also have a mahogany body using a Dimarzio Titan so I don’t want to go with an identical tone. Here’s the specs on the Carvin: Alder Body Ebony Fretboard...
