I just picked mine up again since a couple of months in the case. It had fresh strings on it, which I had not been really played on. Gave it a little tune, and WOW. I know I had completely given it the full Gorgomyte and lemon oil treatment a couple of months earlier, and expected it to be nice... but this is something incredible! The neck just plays itself, and tbh, for a weird reason, it almost feels like a neck of a 7 to me. It feels so effortless! It inspires me a lot and I'm writing some fresh stuff. The Lundgren pickup just fits the tonality perfectly and totally crushes it on the tone department. Even though these guitars are very hit-or miss due to the shoddy QC (especially back in 2015 when I got mine), when you get a good specimen, it's something truly special. I just think this scale length and type of design is how an 8-string should be. It's massive and menacing, but also simple and effortless. Just needed to share, it almost feels like I just entered a new honeymoon with this one!
