Here’s the first appearance of Fredrik’s beautiful, self-designed LACS custom 8 string, currently nicknamed the “Stoneman”, which is a hybrid design of three Ibanez models: the 1970′s Firebrand, the Iceman and the Destroyer. He had been working on and refining this design for some time, finally commissioning the Ibanez custom shop to make it a reality. It must be mentioned again that this is a first prototype, and that the name Stoneman isn’t the official model name yet.
