    I'd kill for an 8 string guitar version of that bass. The Ibanez Thordendal sig is similar but too clunky looking. Keep the same size body and it might even balance decently!

    Not a hope in hell of ever getting one as they are even rarer than the LNG jem777's tho

    and putting the good ol Ivanez logo that was mocked up on here on it. I may be on a Ibanez kick lately

    The martian burl tops coming for a small Ormsby run have all my attention. I've been whoring that brand as of late. Thanks, bad life decisions which have freed up my wallet restrictions.

    Also seriously GAS'ing for a 90's Jackson Warrior Pro. Mmmm Hmmm.

    Me too, until I bought a NG2, now I'm a bass owner. Thing is, knowing what you like to play, if you picked up a used NG2 it would likely take a month to wipe the smile off your face....so fun.

    I keep convincing myself that I don't need an ng2 or combustion even though I've been obsessed with nolly/jon from karnivool's bass tones

    What the fuck is wrong with me? Why do I dig this ridiculous shape? Why am I very likely going to get the top one within the year?

    Help me, SSO :(

    Uh.... you want to play shredding riffs while plowing a field?

    Idk it kinda cool but that lower horn just makes me think oxen strapped to it. Do you man I've looked at stranger guitars...

    The overall vibe of the shape is pretty cool to me, but can you really live with either of those headstocks?

    Something about how wild ESP Japan is with what they're willing to make a production shape just speaks to me - it's like they never left a parallel universe 80's. At this point I've got 2 Japan only signatures left (including the sibling model to the black one posted above) and they both play very well. The headstocks are definitely the biggest mental hurdle, but realistically I've compromised on more significant features. Moreover I know damn well it'll play fantastically, every Kiso built I've had from that production era has been absolutely killer. The fretwork (and how consistent it is) is mythical. The used marked for the black one isn't crazy, either. I've seen acceptable condition models go for just over $2k CAD recently, and playability-wise you're essentially getting an Original series Horizon.

    Maybe collecting a bunch of weird Japan only signature ESPs is my calling?

    Visual kei, man. The j-rock genre is in some parallel 80s universe and ESP just caters to the market :)

    I was recently offered a quick guest solo and some upcoming jobs to be tuned to Eb. I currently have my S540 tuned to that but I felt like playing an RG instead. I was planning the next purchase to be an AZ, but I've come to terms that I'm just an RG guy through and through.

    And I've been looking at the RG550 genesis purple neon lately.

    I've played it recently as well. Looks better in person and plays really well. I might just grab this, put some green Dimarzios, designate it as my Eb guitar, and call it a day.

    Looks great even in the stock photo. But green DiMarzios? Better be an Evangelion gig.

    Funny that, the gig isn't Evangelion themed but the Eva-01 scheme is exactly what I was thinking for this guitar. :lol:

    8 string tele gas is a little out of control at the moment...

    something like this:
    SC 15026 22.jpg

    But with black body and ivory binding, something like this:

    SC 15018 04.jpg

    Why are there no production models of simple tele 8 strings???? I know of the michael kelly 8 strings but never seeing them in Europa.
    Thinking of going custom, anyone any tips who builds great 8 string tele's in Europe, beside from blackat?

    I've never liked the Ibanez headstock until I saw it reversed, heh.
