Granted I could get a lot out of this if my fingers were a tad longer:

I wonder how much the case for this thing costs, I guess they would have to prototype that too.

The 2 tn the Photo are 8 Strings, the one in the link is a 9 string Prototype that is on display at Musikmesse. Either way 6 is enough for me, can't imagine going up the neck with a flurry with any of those.

Be more than 8 bars and these days your lucky if you get to solo with the music going the way it is.

When I played professionally I played a 5 string Bass in a Rock and Blues Trio(I still it use it for recording), it was great to be able to stay in the box and go up a string to the fifth instead of over and not to mention the low B for a bowel moving fifth in the key of E.

I miss those day's of filling holes and syncing in with a great Drummer.

I had a 7 string ibanez some time ago for the low B string. I have a Peavey Predator Plus 6 string down-tuned to A (Evoken album prior to their latest was in A, I think the last one was as well) and my old band tuned down to B on their guitars/bassist uses 5 string active pickups.

My fingers aren't super long and the 7 string was a bit of a stretch for bar chord at top of neck...(even 6 string is a pita for me for that and I kind of gave up learning to play guitar anyways....confusing compared to a keyboard!). But an 8 string I'd rather strap em to my feet and use them for skiing! (the necks that is) but you can get some sick low end off them....and a 9 string would even be more brutal.

Meshuggah played 8 strings for some time and are sick live, their drummer is amazing too...

I almost want to say a chapman stick? Whatever is it he is playing he's doing it wicked! Impressive to say the least if you can master one of them things anyways.

This have been a trend for some years now and there is a many awesome players in the scene using 8 (and even more) string guitars. Tosin Abasi is probably the best known one.
