We have a 2011 RGA8 and I was honestly blown away by it. We have a 2228 in the shop too and this is our 4th RGA8 and when I went to set it up I was expecting it to play like cheesewire on a skateboard like the last few but it was a lot better. The little toggle switch it still useless, and the pickups still just awful, but it plays significantly better than previous models.

I'd still take the 2228 though. The neck is so significantly better that's it's worth paying the extra IMHO. Better guitar, better bridge, plays better, sounds better out of the box, nice case....

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!

Just got a 2228, and it's just nice straight off the bat.

If you are on a budget never buy new, always get second hand as iif you don't like it you can sell it on.

I'd basically try to find a place to try both out. I love the 2228 I got, it's very cool. But, also played a schecter damien 8 the other day, and that is well worth looking at as well.

LTD RA-600 VS PRS SE TORERO

I'm gassing hard for the ltd ra-600. I currently own the PRS SE Torero. As far as specs go they're almost identical. Original floyd. EMG's, neck through etc... Just wanna know what guitar you would prefer over the other and why. I'm going to check out the ra-600 today at the local tom lee. It''s been hanging on the wall for over two years, so I'm going to go see if they want to move it for real low cheap....

The LTD is pretty sweet, but the SE stuff is phenomenal. The Torero looks classier, too.

the torrero wins for having the neck pickup
but the LTD wins for, in my opinion, looking more classy...

and at the same time, the torrero has a ....ing HUGE neck which can cause for a lot of cramping and awkward hand positions. from the 3 i tried, i wasn't really impressed.

Both looks nice. I am an ESP guy through and through, but judging by looks alone I vote for the PRS.

What happened to Jeff? Funny how he dropped off the radar now that the entire Western world disagrees with his right wing bullshit.

I've heard EMGs sound different in guitars that I've owned. But more importantly...

That little sticker that says "Prestige" happens to mean that it was made by hand by awesome luthiers, instead of on an assembly line by underpaid randoms.

I wasn't impressed with the Torero I played. I know you all love them, but the few PRS SE guitars I have played have had little things wrong with them, like the screws for the tuners being loose and such, just little things, but it makes you wonder, if they can't get a tuner on properly, what else is wrong with it.

I like the Rob Arnold guitar and I've played both, I'm not big on sig series guitars. As much of a Chimaira fan as I am I would get neither. Look at the M1000 deluxe or M300fr, both are within your price range and IMO a better guitar. I own the M300 I bought it the same day I played the Prs which I was excited about till a played it.

I love the PRS Toreros. Came from playing an ESP MH-1000, and I have played the real deal KHs, M-II's, Horizon's and others from ESP and the LTD lines. I like the neck shape of the Torero better, and it has a neck p/u. Both of my Toreros were put together nicely, and neither have fallen apart after some pretty extensive touring with them last year. I play them pretty freaking hard to. They hold up well, hold tune great and sound great both live and in the studio. The ESP neck wasn't quite as comfortable to my hand. it seemed narrower, where as the wide-thin PRS profile is just right. Just my $.02

I've honestly been in the same exact boat as you NUMEROUS times with the SAME guitars. I over time came to a conclusion to get both
BUT the first one i'm getting is the red one rofl. Are you gettting the 25.5" or 27" ?

Pros and Cons of Agile std MN?

Hello forums,
Im looking to buy me a new 7s and ive been doing alot of research on them. I have it between an ibanez RG and the agile std mn. Im liking the reviews ive been seeing on the agiles. Does anyone have a rant or list of pros and cons of these guitars? Im a intermediate-high level player if that matters at all.
Thanks!

Agiles do make good guitars but i will always recommend the pro models as the standard ones tend to have a couple of flaws for example finish blemishes but that wouldn't bother me one bit, another thing to take heed of are those cepheus pickups they use people almost allways replace them as they complain about muddiness but i dont have a problem with them as i have a friend who owns tons of them at least 6 he has 2 6s 2 7s and 2 8's so he's pretty loaded and can afford it but he hasn't changed the pickups as he has a good rig to play them through, so it's all down to personal choice.

Wrong section.

But to answer your question, we need a lot more info. Ran customs are going to run much higher than the RGA8. What is your budget? What specs will you be getting on the Ran? If the Ran ends up costing around $1500, you could have just bought the RGA8 and thrown some pickups in it with some money left over.

Well the Ran will almost certainly be the better guitar, but it's not really fair to compare the two. One is made by a custom-shop in Poland, the other comes off an assembly line in Indonesia. One also costs twice as much as the other. If money isn't an issue, I would definitely go with the Ran.
