Anyone have any idea what standard tuning is on this?

Standard on the lower 6, then add a B for the 7th string, and F# for the 8th

G-B-E-A-D-G-B-E was just my guess...

But looking around the inter net proves me wrong again.
F#,B,E,A,D,G,B,E

Here is an interesting suggestion...
"B-E-A-D-G-B-E-A...............This gives you a high A on top and a low B on the bottom. – user3419 Dec 23 '12"
But you would need a thin string like an Octave G string for your high string -- .008" or so.

I have enough trouble with standard tuning on 6-strings.

(and Damon answered while I was searching for that info )
