OVERVIEW

Custom-designed with Martin and Fredrik of Meshuggah.

The Ibanez M80M Meshuggah 8-String Electric Guitar is perfectly balanced to deliver a truly great 8-string experience. Martin and Fredrik of Meshuggah worked with Ibanez to achieve this special guitar. The M80M has a 29.4" extra-long scale neck with preset downtuning. This emits a tight and consistant sound all the way down to the lowest note without ever losing playability. The ash body enhances the defined tone even in downtuning.

The Lundgren Model M8P pickup was designed specifically for this guitar and, at the expense of being slightly low-output, delivers an extremely well-defined and balanced tone across the fingerboard, even when playing with a high-gain setting amplifier. The FX Edge III-8 bridge combines a fixed bridge sustain and double-locking tuning stability. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Ibanez M80M 8-String Meshuggah Signature Electric Guitar:

    This guitar truly has it all. Starting with the solid ash body that brings a bright snappy tone to the lower register along with the maple and walnut neck with titanium truss rod the action is fast and stable for such a long but well suited scale length. At 29.4 it gives the player the perfect amount of tension when drop tuning that's never flabby or mudded. Add the Lundgren mid output passive pup and the uber stable FX Edge 111 Bridge. Awesome fretwork top it all off. This guitar truly has the mixture right when it comes to an eight string just a small tweak out of the box and you'll be lost for hours on end challenging your creativity. IMO the best production 8 on the market, hands down!

      Comments about Ibanez M80M 8-String Meshuggah Signature Electric Guitar:

      I've always struggled to play above the 12th fret. My hands are huge. FINALLY there is a guitar with a scale length that I can actually shred, where my fingers just hit into each other on other guitars. Not only that but it's amazing how versatile one pickup can be. With its medium output it will blend into any sound you want; you just have to know how to use your amp. Blues. Check. Metal. Check. Jazz. Check. Country. Check. The neck looks like the deck of an aircraft carrier, but it feels just like any other Ibanez - fast. The build is top notch. If you told me it was a prestige I might believe you. No matter what you play if you have always found normal necks too short for comfort, buy this. If you want an 8 string to chug with, buy this. If you want to shred, buy this. If you want a mellow ambient guitar, buy this.

      Comments about Ibanez M80M 8-String Meshuggah Signature Electric Guitar:

      This is a fun guitar to play and it has a really nice sound. The finish on the wood by the pickup where I rest my pinky shows serious wear in only 6 months. Shame because it's a really cool matte finish, but where my pinky has worn it down is shiny.
      The guitar came with a defected lock screw that broke off inside when trying to unscrew it. Cost an extra hundo to get that shipped back to Ibanez. Slightly annoying, but no big deal. The other lock screws have a "cheap" feel to them.
      Other than those minor things its a fun instrument. If you haven't played an eight, get ready to stretch your fingers out.
