Was kinda hoping for an 8. Maybe next year.
I was hoping for this too, but if it didn't happen now, I don't see it happening for a while. Seemingly, the only reason for JP to go with an 8 is to write new material (why play non 8-string stuff on an 8-string? Especially considering he doesn't play 6 string stuff on a 7). Seeing as a massive undertaking is just about to be unleashed on us, I think it's accurate to say it's gonna be a bit until JP gets back to writing. I imagine they'll tour this album for quite a while. Maybe for the next album? Probably best not to hold our breaths.
for those who keep thinking the jp16 is an ibanez you are really off base....when they hit the stores lay one on top it is not even close....I guess it has 6 strings
JP doesnt play 8 string when he does it will be made for him
