Jordan is getting an 8 string guitar

Caption for picture reads, "@druzkowskiguitars is making great progress on my custom 8 string guitar. Inlay complete!"

Another caption for a previous picture on his Instagram feed reads, "@druzkowskiguitars is working on my custom guitar. This is the wizard inlay, designed by Mr. Fastfinger @mikafastfinger. At the moment all the parts are cut and separated and now itís time to start inlaying it into the fingerboard. Prior to that there is the preparation of the fingerboard and making the cuts in the hole . Once this is done and the inlay is glued in, all will be flattened and oiled . Stay tuned"

I am curious if this guitar will be is for his personal (solo, home studio) or professional (DT) use.

^ Very cool, but I can pretty much guarantee you it'll be for personal use. JR will not be playing guitar in DT. JP has made it VERY clear in the past he's not into the keys/secondary guitar all in one thing.

Source for that statement?

Yeah, given JP's statements in the past, that's a safe bet.  But you never know.  Opinions can change.  It's been a pretty long time since he said that.

I'd have to dig around for the source, JP talked about it a long time ago. I think other members also talked about JP not wanting DS to play second guitar along with keys during his time with the band.

That could make JP want an 8 string even more (or maybe he hates it and decides to drop all the plans for an EBMM JP 8 string guitar :biggrin:)

I see him using this guitar for demos for DT and for his solo stuff.

Yeah, I remember Neil Peart stating he would never use electronic drums, so anything is possible.

JR said he's gonna use it in his solo stuff... MM said he's writing solo stuff... WHAT IF: The next DT album will be a collection of songs/music brought individually by all the five members and each one gets the "executive producer" role to their own songs? Something like what Periphery did in Clear EP.

Back on topic, assuming it will be similar to the guitar JR played and recorded a video announcing his custom model, it'll kick ass!

Or! Or! What if each member makes their own ALBUM and they package them together? DT14 will be FIVE discs!

Didn't Petrucci already say he would use an 8-string on the next album?

He said there's plans for it and that he hopes to have it by the time they enter the studio for the next album, but he wasn't completely sure about it.

Ok. I thought it was a definite thing. I wonder how that will turn out. Good I hope!

Lame.

Let me know when he gets an 18 string.

I was at JPs Sam Ash thing in Hollywood last year, and Sterling Ball said the 8 string was in development and that he thought everyone would really be a "fan" of it (emphasis on the word fan), which, to me, was an obvious hint at it being a fanned fret guitar.

Or Bruce Dickinson ripping on synths in metal

Honestly, I get why JP wouldn't want another guitarist in the band, but maybe for a song having JR play with him would be really cool and add some new sounds to DT and I wish JP wouldn't limit the band from exploring this option on the new album if the music calls for it.

I think if it gets used for DT it will either be for studio / demos only, or maybe 1 or 2 songs live. It'd be pretty awesome if JR played guitar live for a song or 2, he's surprisingly good at it too!

Yea I think it would be really cool to, like instead of a keytar part he brings out an actual guitar and does some cool harmonies with JP. Would add a new element to the live show.

I really like it, looks really awesome! It's funny that he got one before JP.

I hope I can get a 8 string guitar someday.
