they are 1,499.99 on samash.com,heres a link http://www.samash.com/catalog/showitem.asp?ItemPos=301&TempID=2&STRID=19959&Method=2&CategoryID=0&BrandID=1380&PriceRangeID=0&PageNum=30&DepartmentID=0&pagesize=10&SortMethod=2&SearchPhrase=&Contains=&Search_Type=SEARCH&GroupCode=

the new jem is on there too,i dont think that guitar is worth 4999.99,some one has already bought one,and left a review on it,but 5000 bux for acrylic,i no its 20th anniversery,and it has special pickups that sound good with the body,and only 200 are gonna be made in the us,but c'mon,some stuff needs to be priced better...

Argh, why!? There is no plausible reason you'd need eight strings. Most people can't even handle six...

There is a "plausible" reason, just because you can't think of one, doesn't mean there isn't one.

some people can,but i asked why,and most people said for more ariations for chords and runs,and for solo and heavy rythems,and that was only about .5% of people,and the rest of the 99.5% that said sumpthan to me said either b/c rusty colley plays one or the guys from messugah(sp?)...but people will never have an end for how many strings they want,ive seen a 24 string bass b4,the neck was so big,the dude couldnt pick it,it was all double tap,and he didnt use most of the strings....some stuff is jus to out there...but it personal preference relle,so wat ever makes someone happy...
