Manufacturer's ID: ML18-RS-LNR
The original idea here was to make an 8 string that isn't simply geared towards making metal but a wide array of genres with metal included. Sing you to sleep, bring the funk, djent your face off, it would excel with all these while looking the part.
With inspiration from the ML-7S, I wanted a mahogany body base with similar pickups. But what I love mahogany for its look and tone I didn't love its weight. So I decided to put swamp ash wings on the side to take off that weight. And that's where the racing stripe kind of look came from.
OK, I could talk about these for hours so maybe I'll just stop here... I'm so proud of these guitars.
