Another proud RG2228 owner here
Bought it in late 2010 and received it just before christmas. It was mostly for ....z'n'gigglez, because I've been getting seriously into music which features 8 string guitars over the last year and a half. Before I got it I was mainly playing 7 strings, therefore I quickly adapted to having 8 strings. The neck surprised me a lot and fits my semi-small hands perfectly!
It has since become my main axe! ^^
