This Eight-string Beast is Not for the Faint of Heart

Pummel your fans with the Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature 8-string electric guitar - don't worry, they'll come back for more. You'll command aggressive down-tuned tone that's incredibly punchy and defined. The M80M Meshuggah Signature's 5-piece neck is ultra-rigid and ready to withstand years of aggressive playing. It also sports the FX Edge III-8 bridge, a double-locking design that was specifically created for Ibanez's 8-string axes. If you want to shred like Marten Hagstrom and Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah, then Sweetwater has your weapon of choice - the Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature 8-string guitar.

Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature 8-string Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Fast, smooth feel from the 5-piece neck
  • Custom Lundgren Model M8P pickup gives you amazingly balanced and detailed tone
  • FX Edge III-8 bridge helps you stay in tune no matter what
Fast, smooth feel from the 5-piece neck

The Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature packs a 5-piece maple/walnut neck with a 29.4" scale length and KTS titanium reinforcement rods, so you can already tell it's primed for down-tuned metal mayhem. Best of all, the M80M Meshuggah Signature's frets have received Ibanez's Prestige fret edge treatment, which rounds their ends off so smoothly that you'll barely know they're there. In other words, you can shred all night without actually shredding your hands.

Custom Lundgren Model M8P pickup gives you amazingly balanced and detailed tone

Consider that an 8-string guitar's output has a very wide tonal range, and you'll see why Ibanez started from scratch with the M80M Meshuggah Signature's single humbucker. They worked with Lundgren to create a low-output pickup that will hit your amplifier with brutal authority. The lower output helps capture the full range of the M80M Meshuggah Signature, which means that you're driving your amp with a well-balanced tone that's pounding, punchy, and clear.

FX Edge III-8 bridge helps you stay in tune no matter what

Even guitars with fixed tailpieces can lose their tuning during a full metal assault, requiring you to retune many times throughout a gig. That's why Ibanez added the double-locking FX Edge III-8 bridge to the M80M Meshuggah Signature, which was designed by Ibanez specifically for their ultra-aggressive 8-string guitars. Lock in your tuning at the start of the gig, and you may not have to touch it again during your whole set.

Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature 8-string Electric Guitar Features:
  • Aggressive 8-string guitar designed for Marten Hagstrom and Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah
  • 5-piece maple/walnut neck with KTS titanium reinforcement rods is very rigid for lifelong performance
  • Longer 29.4" scale length gives you string tension that's perfect for down-tuned metal
  • FX Edge III-8 bridge's double-locking design gives you superior tuning stability and reliability
  • Lundgren Model M8P humbucker captures defined, well-balanced tone
  • Factory tuning (high to low): 1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, 8F
  • Hard case included
Conjure epic aggressive tone with the Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signature!

THIS THING IS OUT OF CONTROL AMAZING. I AM SERIOUSLY GOING TO BUY A 2ND ONE WHEN I HAVE MY FIRST ONE PAID DOWN TO A TOLERABLE AMOUNT. YOU JUST CANT UNDERSTAND THE SOUND, THE TONE THE GROWL THIS BEAST HAS UNTIL YOU PLAY ONE. LISTENING TO MESHUGGAH DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE YOU HAVE TO PLAY ONE.
