I currently own a Dean 8 string. I always wanted a Schecter 8 though. Ive never had any issues with my 8 string. I just don't see Deans very often so wasnt sure what people thought of them. What do you guys think of Dean 8 strings and which company has good 8 strings? I'm trying to decide between an Ibanez or schecter, but am interested in other brands as well.
