This is the Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature 8-String Electric Guitar. Meshuggah's music is crushing. It is driven by tight low end poly rhythms that shake will destroy all in its path. To deliver this kind of tone you need an istrument of brutality that only Ibanez can deliver. Marten Hagstrom of Meshuggah teamed up with Ibanez to deliver the most crushing 8 string guitar ever built. And they succeeded. The body of the M80M is crafted from lightweight Ash, which contributes to this guitars tight low end, sweet highs and incredible sustain. With a 29.4" scale length its extended scale is more like that of a bass guitar to deliver the extra stability tightness of the strings that you need for this type of instrument. The neck is a gorgeous 5-piece Maple/Walnut bolt-on neck. The M80M neck also employs a Rosewood fingerboard and is topped off with 24 jumbo frets, which is ideal for high velocity shredding and facilitates effortless string bending. The M80M is set up with a specific down tuning which allows for consistent string tension and delivers a linear response down to the lowest note.
The M80M houses a single humbucker in the bridge position, specifically voiced for 8-string guitars. Handmade in Sweden, the Lundgren M8P pickup was designed to give each and every note superior definition and deliver the best possible tone quality in the lower frequencies to reproduce staccato attacks with military precision. The sound of the M8P can be easily shaped with the simplistic tone and volume control knobs.
The Ash body has a weathered look on its Black finish which is actually the natural grain of the wood and it is accented with all black hardware including black tuning machines, black control knobs and a black bridge. The Fixed Edge III-8 bridge gives the M80M improved tuning stability and increased sustain.
An Ibanez hardshell case is included with your purchase of the M80M 8-String Guitar for superior protection.
