  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    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. I've been planning on grabbing a bridge from ibanez parts which also ain't cheap. So at this point...

    This was going to be a story about re-winding the factory RG8 pickups, but, as I quickly discovered, they are cast in an epoxy resin. Then I remembered reading about Wolfetones's new P-90 pickups that fit humbucker cavities and I wondered why that was significant. Thus followed some research...

    So, I figured I'd snatch one of these up because it had good bones for a modding. I added Hipshot locking tuners, a Hipshot 8-string hardtail, and a pair of EMGs :yesway:

    I do enjoy my 8 but I'm just not jiving with the white. I would like to repaint it but what color? Looking for suggestions... It has a white pearloid pickgaurd, I've been thinking black, but I am capable of any color really.

    So I decided to sand my rg8 back and heel contours to stain them or do something (I actually kinda like the natural basswood) and there was cracks and dinks all over the contours, here's the most noticeable one: I had to sand it right down to the wood through thick ass paint coats and lacquer...

  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Anyone know if there is a difference between the two? I need one for a s8 but they seem the same, at least on the ibanez site the specs are the same.

    I'll post this here first ;) During my latest visit to Meshuggah's studio, we decided to make a comparison vid showing the basic tonal differences between their trusty workhorse LACS RG8, the M8M signature, and the prototype of the upcoming new M80M signature model. The results are surprisingly...
