The Ibanez M80M Meshuggah 8-String Electric delivers superior low-end power but with plenty of balance and clarity thanks to its exceptional features.
The M80M was designed by both Martin and Fredrik of Meshuggah to create an 8-string with 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 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. This is a killer 8-string and highly-recommended to anyone considering one.

M80M BeastBy: Dwight Kostusik on 13 March 2017What a great instrument. Coming from a 6 string, this thing is quite intimidating but worth the effort (physical and mental). I tried a few other 8's but this thing really makes your gooseberries rattle with the amazing resonance. I now know why bass players have that slightly docile, pre climax expression when they are playing...It is the instrument hitting their g spot! Things to note 1. 29.4" scale length will punish your hand for the first week. 2. The light guage strings can be left in the shop. I have some EB 9-80's. Also regular tuning F# B E A D G B E. 3. The MP8 humbucker and positioning give a very dry, flat tone. Made for metal and metalesque cleans. I do some jazzy chords with a bassy driven sound, reverb, etc and this is respectable. I guess I was surprised if anything about the versatility. 4. I have not found a use for the tone pot yet. It is kind of like a lofi dial? 5. The neck is super thin. It is an Ibanez. I'm finding my thumb needs retraining. 6. Fixed bridge. 7. The soft case is good but you will need a more robust case for gigging. If you can tackle the size and in the market for something different, demand a play of the beasty. A fantastic guitar.
