    I like both of them, but Javier's guitar appeals more to me personally. Not a big fan of the huge block inlays I guess. :lol:

    Not really doing much for me, though I'm intrigued by the single-coil middle pickup - maybe this could be a springboard toward wider availability of 8-string singles?

    Also: Tosin's *really* rocking the 1987 Vernon Reid look in that photo. Maybe we need him to do a guest spot on the next Living Colour record? A Tosin/Vernon guitar battle would be *epic*.

    I like the block inlays, especially since they are color-matched with the body and headstock :shrug:

    It's nice, but it looks too similar to his white LACS, I'd hate to have two guitars that are basically the same. One of them will always become more favoured, and that leaves the other one sitting around.
    Thinking about it, i much prefer the simplicity of his white 8, he should have just gone for a different look here.

    It's beautiful. I wonder what the other switch is for. Ibanez need to make an AAL guitar if not a Tosin guitar.

    It's nice to see some RG8s that are vastly different. Tosin's is particularly awesome.

    Javier is becoming much classier than Tosin, while Tosin is looking more like Gerald from Hey Arnold. :lol:

    The gold and the blue (or whatever the hell colour that is) kills it for me. Do not want.


    The block inlays are surprising but they're at least interesting. Not my cup of tea though.


    At least we know Ibanez can do the edge FX-8 in other colours other than black now. :lol:


    Bring on a cosmo or chrome one. :D

    Is it me or does Tosin's LACS have a rosewood neck or something? Look at the joint.

    If Tosin's had a different pickgaurd Id dig it but the gold and flamed sea foamish blue/white looks juicy. Looks like something Steve Vai would play, minus the monkey grip of course.

    Also I thought that pudgy bald dude behind Tosin was Rick from Pawn Stars for at first glance. :lol:
