Apparently it only comes in black in Canada, so I got it in black I likely would have anyway, I prefer the matching headstock over a specific colour. I ordered it from my local shop a couple months ago, and it came in while I was at work today.
It plays great. The first thing I did was play every note, and the fretwork seems solid. I like pretty much everything about it more than my RGA8. It sounds punchier than the RGA8, too, and the notes ring out more clearly. When I have some extra cash, or if I sell my RGA8, it'll get either an 808x set or X-Bars.
Apologies for the bad cell phone pictures, whenever I overhaul it I'll borrow my buddy's SLR and take some decent ones. Work was rough today, I was too lazy to wipe the fingerprints off, let alone restring it and drive to get a camera
