Hello People Ill be purchasing an 8 string at some point this week, however, I would appreciate some input/advice as to the model etc since I have no one to ask Willing to spend up to £1800 or about $2700. Potentials include Ibanez RG2228m, Ibanez RG852LW-HAB or Jackson USA Select B8 Satin Black - any other suggestions? Is there much difference between the first two Ibanez models? Few hundred difference in price range Im a fan of the some sub-genres of metal such as Djent (forgive for using this term haha), progressive metal, experimental etc. I love classical as well and some jazz. Primarily influenced by Tosin Abasi, Misha Mansoor, Meshuggah, classical guitar, classical Spanish guitar. Not sure what else to say, I use an Axe Fx 2 through KRK studio monitors. Cheers in advance.
