    Hey guys, hope you don't mind me posting this up, more of a lurker than a poster. Anyway, I'm selling my Ibanez RG2228, plays great, got it a couple of years ago but never really got on with 8 strings. Strung with 10-80 D'addarios, also has a reversible 18v EMG mod. Good condition, no dents on...

    Been GASing hard for an 8 string recently after listening to too much Meshuggah, was shopping around for an RG8 to test the water as I've only ever played 7s before but this thing came up for a good price so I jumped on it. It's a 2008, fairly good condition for it's age - just the one ding on...

    So I have posted a few times about a project guitar I'm doing up with a RG8 and using a area51 body. I'm getting a swirl placed on the body by a chap in the UK which is going to cost a fair bit.
