Very nice!
I'm just getting acquainted with 7 strings and wonder whether an eighth string would still more complicate life or be just a small leap...

That it does Rob.
Sounds like you got a deal there with the Ibanez.
Thanks for the music.
Getting better bit by bit, day by day.

Rojaro - once you have seven you, want eight. Once you have eight, ten looks useful. Once you have ten, you need 14 for Bach! The lute players have been down this road already, and in some ways it led to the death of their instrument. Eight will do me...for a while...

Guitar-ded - my pleasure. Glad you like it.

For a while is quite true. Look at the insects ... they also want to have more and more legs!!!
