Custom-designed with Martin and Fredrik of Meshuggah.

The Ibanez M80M Meshuggah 8-String Electric Guitar is perfectly balanced to deliver a truly great 8-string experience. Martin and Fredrik of Meshuggah worked with Ibanez to achieve this special guitar. The M80M has a 29.4" extra-long scale neck with preset downtuning. This emits a tight and consistant sound all the way down to the lowest note without ever losing playability. The ash body enhances the defined tone even in downtuning.

The Lundgren Model M8P pickup was designed specifically for this guitar and, at the expense of being slightly low-output, delivers an extremely well-defined and balanced tone across the fingerboard, even when playing with a high-gain setting amplifier. The FX Edge III-8 bridge combines a fixed bridge sustain and double-locking tuning stability. Includes hardshell case.

  • M80M ERG

    As reviewed by Dave Lipnicky on 3/8/2014

    Let me start off with this and move on. The entire experience in getting this guitar from GC was a total nightmare. But I?m here to review the guitar itself not the corp. process. This guitar is as close to everything I could want in an ERG with a few exceptions. Let?s start with construction. The tone wood used for the body (ash) is exceptional with a bright crisp tone. I love the unusual grain and the worn black finish. The neck is made of maple and walnut with a titanium truss rod and to speaks to something Ibanez does very well (necks)! Frets are smooth and finished on the ends well. The 29.4? scale length accommodates many types of drop tuning. I did feel the stock strings sucked and swapped them out for more balanced set giving the proper tension yet keeping things playable. The Ludgren pickup, while being of medium output is a perfect match for the tone wood and performs well under high gain in addition to clean tones. The pots that are installed are of high quality and feel very solid, not at all sloppy or loose. The FX Edge III-8 bridge is stellar and having the ability to lock down this beast and fine tune is an awesome option. Overall the guitar is not very heavy and is very comfortable and well balanced. I have logged many hours on it now and can also say this guitar is not a one trip pony. Am I a Meshuggah fan? Yes! Is their signature model the reason I purchased? No! It?s based totally on specs alone. This guitar is not by any stretch a one trick pony.

  • This Guitar is a Powerhouse of Awesome

    As reviewed by Jeremy Royer on 12/6/2013

    My first initial thought when ordering this through my local GC, was "is it going to be any good?" Once I received it, my answer was an absolute and resounding "YES!" You can actually FEEL the difference in play-ability with the 29.4" scale length. It feels so comfortable to play, even with my unusually small hands. The sound and tone really benefits with the length, too. Every note played is crisp, tight, and well-pronounced. Even played acoustically, it's one of the only 8-strings I've played that you are able hear the low F# beautifully. The Lundgren M8P is hands down the best sounding PUP I've played on. Really versatile with both cleans and leads. Ibanez's premium Indonesia factory (where this was built) really did a great job with this build. A buddy of mine in Germany, ordered one as well, and he and I both agree that the quality is very high. If nobody told you the M80M was built in Indonesia, you'd think it came from their Japanese factory. The look and feel of the ash body is nothing short of sexy. All in all, I would absolutely recommend this instrument to anyone looking for the "Djent" monster, or the progressive player; even with the missing neck pickup. I am extremely happy with this purchase.
