What we say:
This imposing instrument is the new Signature model for Meshuggah's Fredrik Thordendal. Meshuggah are widely known to have completely rewritten the rulebook on modern metal and this 8 string behemoth is the kind of equipment Fredrik needs to do just that.
This large 27" scale length beast has neck-through construction for awesome amounts of power and sustain. The neck is made from 7 pieces of Maple and Walnut, joined by two Ash 'wings' to make up the original shape body. This type of build is increasingly normal with contemporary metal axes: the strength and precision required by the genres require such efforts. The fingerboard is Rosewood and has 24 jumbo frets and no fret markers.
Thordendal has long been a user of Lundgren pickups and this model features a pair of M8 open coil models. These are ceramic and have real power and clarity to them. Harmonics just spill out whilst low end notes preserve their attack. They are just perfect for Meshuggah-style riffing in fact!
Guitarists paying close attention to this guitar are in no doubt about what it's for and who uses it: this is the axe of the mighty Meshuggah! Anyone who loves modern metal will have this on their wish list already!
There is a ding to the edge of the body, located on the back of the bass side wing. Also a few much lighter dings and marks across the body. In great condition otherwise, and comes with original Ibanez hard gig bag, manual and guitar lead.
