  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've got no interest in getting an 8 string whatsoever but I figured someone on here might. For 50 bucks more than an RG8 it's definitely a pretty good deal. Ibanez RGA8 - Black | Sweetwater.com
  2. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Okay, I cleaned this up and was planning on keeping it, but my Custom 24-7 GAS is too great :lol: so it has to go. It's either the RGA8 or RG8, and I like the fatter neck on the RG8 more, and I just bought it haha, so RGA it is. It's got some small nicks, and it's missing the truss rod and...
  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm talking to Rich from Ibanez Rules about ordering some parts for my RGA8, and I asked him about possibly getting a regular nut to replace the locking one (the source of my frustration with that guitar). He said that he can order in an RG8 nut. Is it worth ordering one of those to try, or is...
  4. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I caved and ordered an RG8. I really don't get along with the locking bridge on this thing. It's been played and is in pretty good shape. It's got a DA8 bridge and PAF8 neck. I shielded the control cavity with a StewMac shielding kit. In the interest of full disclosure: aside from a couple...
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've had the guitar for months, but it's finally done. Sounds good, plays pretty well. It's been more trouble than it's worth, but at least it's useable now and will give me something to play and record with until I can afford a DC800. I talk more about the pickups here...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    And it sounds quite bad ass. I got a shielding kit from StewMac and used the downtime today to sit down with my dad (who's way better at wiring than me) and shield the boobs out of the cavities and totally rewire this thing. The D Activator in the bridge sound amazing for cleans. If I didn't...

    Spotted it here. Ibanez RGA8-WH - Thomann UK Cyberstore Shame the photoshopping sucks.
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    There's a chance I might be picking up an RGA8 soon (yes Chris, I know :lol:) and it already has an EMG 808X in the bridge. I've heard that the regular 808's pretty well suck (not as bad as stocks but still), so I'm trying to decide on the best pickups for the guitar. 27" scale, bolt on maple...
  9. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I have an Ibanez RGA8, in great condition. Has an EMG808x on the bridge. Only problem is that the neck pickup needs to get soldered, and one of the locking nuts are missing (bought it like that). Other than that its an amazing guitar! It plays like a beast. I'll let it go for 650 plus shipping...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    Got a new song idea me and my friend have been working on for a couple of days! Logic's coming in the mail soon so I'm going to finish it up completely and work out all the bugs when I get that. The guitar was my RGA8 with BKP Aftermaths tuned to E B E B E F# B e. Lemme know what you think...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Returned Ibanez RGA8! "That BUZZ"!! Schecter Damien 8 or Agile Intrepid Pro Dual? This is my second post and I still don't have an 8 and I still don't know what to choose :wallbash: Yesterday, I went to my trusted guitar shop to get the Ibanez RGA8 I've ordered. After, a general euphoria for a...
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Schecter C-8, or Ibanez RGA8? Screw ESP, Agile or anything else, what are your opinions of these two if you had a choice of one or the other? They're both mahogany, gorgeous, and I can't decide between them!! Whichever it ends up being, I'll be shoehorning in EMG 808x's, and GraphTech piezo's...

    Just getting it's own thread, since there may be more people curious.
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Everyone's seen this, but here's the RGA8 from Matt. Thanks again dude! :metal: I just got back from a golf tourney and only played it for about 20 seconds, but it's definitely a fun little toy. :D Will post some thought on it once I have time to fiddle with it a bit!
  15. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    So I've come to the realization that perhaps 8-strings are just not for me. So I am looking for a Ibanez 7 to trade this guitar for. I'm looking for a Prestige level Ibanez, I wanna go all out here. Think RG1527/RG1527M, K-7, 1077XL, UV777, RG2027, or RGD2127 level. Maybe, MAYBE an...
  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I've set up my guitars for quite a long time, but I wanted some outside input to maybe get a fresh perspective. On my RGA8 I've been using the following string gauges from high to low: 9-12-15-22-30-40-54-72, which tension wise is great and feels very even across the board. All this time I've...
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I haven't really still tested the pickups properly through my real rig yet, but more than likely I will want to upgrade the pickups in this guitar eventually. My question to you folks is this: I like active pickups, what pickups should I get to replace the stock pickups? Seymour Duncan...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Okay, so it's not exactly new guitar day seeing as I've had this for a few days now, but what the hell! :lol: I didn't want to take pics of the whole unboxing thing, so I just took various pictures out of the box which you may see below: And as far as a brief review so far...this...
