first act 9 string?

how much would it cost to get one of these. i really like 12 strings but i still want to play metal songs, but have that chorusy sound with the first 3 strings. i want a silverburst one like brent hinds...even one like matt pike would be nice. but how much do guys you think one of these would cost?

First Act the company makes 9 strings? I'd be leery of those if they do. Custom 9ers would run you a pretty penny. (Normal custom guitars do anyway)

Just from googling around there's a dude on Harmony Central trying to sell one for $2800 OBO.

so basically you what Matt PIke has, a 9 string from First Act
i know its epics but they wont just make you one and you need ALOT of mula to pay for one let alone itll take a long time to get their pro shop number as well


For all those wondering TS is talking about the type of guitar Matt Pike from High On Fire has, check out for morer info (btw his is a 9 string First Act)

You'd be hard pressed to find one, for that price you could probably find a luthier who would build you a custom one for a lot less than the $2800 that guy on HC is asking for his First Act.
