Alright, I believe this sort of thing goes here, not in the ERG section. If I'm wrong, I apologize. I'm looking for suggestions for 8 string guitars. This is more to supplement the stuff I've looked at. For a budget I have about 1000$ maximum, can't do any more. I've looked at Esp/Ltd but don't like their short scale necks. Ibanez has the 2228, but I'm having issues finding one used or one that scrapes my price range. The RGA 8 seems ok, but I'm to fond of the fact that I will need to change the pups. Agile has the nicest stuff for my range. Ebony boards, long scales, 28" is my idea length as I hate flab or the dull thud created by short scale lengths. Schecter has the same issue as Esp/Ltd. I just don't think a 26" scale is long enough (It might be 26.5" but still) I've been reading into this stuff for a while and just want to know about any options I could have missed. Cheers.
