    Got my first 8 string for christmas and this thing is AMAZING! It is super comfortable while playing and the only gripes i have about it are the emg 808s (ALTHOUGH they arent as bad as people make them out to be, they do lack the dynamics and response that the Nazgul i have in my 7 and the pegasus i have in my 6 string guitars) , and the "shorter" 26.5 scale length. I do plan on swapping out the emgs for either a set of covered bkp nailbombs or juggs, the Lundgren m8c, or either the Fishman Stephen carpenter Fluences/ New tosin abasi Fluences (when they finally go on sale since they were announced the other day).:hbang:

    Congrats man, I had one in the same finish some years ago. Regret selling it, liked the feel much more than the rg8 I have now.

    Definitely not the worst pickups as they actually are AMAZING for cleans, but they're also not the best.

    Nice score, I have one in red. Fretboard gets super dark after you get it cleaned up and oiled.

    I swapped the 808s out for d-activators in this and I noticed the same thing... the 808 cleans are actually really good. The lack of background noise does them favors there.
