I've been looking into getting an 8 string for christmas, but I want one with a FR Trem. Anyone know where I can get one? I've seen 7 strings with FR, but can't find an 8.

You cant.

closest would be the 8 string Khalher.

That bridge is more expensive than the 8 string I had in mind!

There's a reason for that.

Probably. .. Thanks for the insight though. Seems like I'll be getting that in about 4 years.

Frankly, having a trem on an 8-string just seems like a bad idea. You're already dealing with flubflubflubiness, why exacerbate it with divebombs xD

I want an 8 string with a floyd so I can tape down the floyd and play dubstep.

I just wanna have a large range of versatility with one guitar.

dubstep is too mainstream.

You're too hip to function. I'm surprised breathing isn't too mainstream for you.

They do make them... but I've only seen them on Ibanez LACS guitars, and I saw someone that got a custom one welded and assembled with individual saddles he had bought.

Short story shorter: They aren't commercially made, and if the Kahler 2228 bridge is more expensive than the guitar you want to buy, chances are you can't afford a custom 8 string Floyd Rose style bridge unless you have the machines and experience to make one yourself.

Agile makes an 8 string model with a Kahler system. That's your best bet. To my knowledge there is no 8 string Floyd rose tremolo. Kahler's are nice though. You can't abuse them like you can a Floyd but the level at which you can fine tune them is incredible. Plus you can lock them into a fixed bridge when you want, which is a favorite feature of mine and I'd actually use a lot for an 8 string.

+1 Thought for an 8 String I would suggest the one with the khaler instead of FR since when you dont need it you can lock it.
