First thing I must advise is not to believe those who claim that 26.5 is not a proper scale for an eight-string guitar! On the contrary, it is ideal unless you have Steve Vai-like fingers to play a 28 scale.
Once you install thicker 7th and 8th strings everything will go flawlessly on this guitar.
With the default strings and set-up it was impossible to intonate the eighth string so I decided immediately to change the strings.
I put D'Addarios NYXL 0.009 - 0.074 (tuned the guitar in "standard" E-B-G-D-A-B-F# tuning). I (re)set-up the guitar very easily then, lowered a bit the action for all the strings.
For a drop E (on the eight string) one might need to use a 0.080" string I presume, as the .074 is a bit flappy for this operation.

Now, about the instrument:
- the two SD humbuckers are a big surprise, have a great dynamic range, very balanced, sound awesome and the tone is full of character. I tested them by playing some mild progressive metal, rock, jazz, electric blues and clean arpeggios. (I don't play/like heavily distorted metal)
- the neck is sleek and intelligently crafted - the thickness curves, the compound radius, the frets - much better than of similar instruments as Schecter and Ibanez.
- the sustain is crazy (probably due to the neck-through design)
- the playability is very good, I would say fantastic! (mind that I own 11 guitars, some of them very expensive)
- the finish of the guitar is stellar, considering its price.
- the body weight is low considering the size of the monster (basswood is a great choice here)
- the quilted maple face is eye catchy but the grey color is not on my taste (I would prefer a sunburst, red or green)
- only one negative aspect: the tuning machines are under-average, cheap Chinese stuff, it doesn't stay in tune , they are far for being precise. I plan to change them ASAP with decent locking tuners but it's a bit difficult to find a set of 4L + 4R locking tuners - at least, Thomann doesn't sell these.
I didn't find out yet if the nut is in graphite or plastic and I cannot find on the Jackson website the detailed specs of this precise model; the original cardboard box didn't contain any details sheet in it. By the way, it came without any user manual, warranty manufacturer paper or any other document. In its original box I found only a pair of hex keys for set-up. Thomann claims that it came like this from the manufacturer... I have some doubts about this.

Anyhow, I just love this instrument!
