That's it. Buying the hell out of one of these bad boys as soon as I can!
Sooo dang tempting!
I posted some pictures of mine on pg 23. This is my first 8, what kind of strings do you guys recommend for this guitar?
I only changed the 8th string...
I have a 7 string pack and I think I'm gonna take the bottom 6 of that and put em on my 6er that needs some love. I'll save the 9 for a rainy day (I tend to break those from time to time).
OK, I'm dead set on buying one of these in the next few weeks or so. A practical question for those that have them. What's a decent hard case that fits them? I'd assume there's a case available for them from Ibanez, but I'm not opposed to going off-brand so long as it fits. I don't do guitars without cases anymore.
Anybody have a recommendation?
You got some killer neck flame and rosewood on yours! Mine has no flame at all and average looking rosewood...
a hardcase for a PBass.
Thanks! I was really surprised with the bit of flame on the neck and I absolutely love the rosewood they choose for this guitar. It has a similar richness to the fretboard on my js1200. I think that's kind of awesome
So after having attempted to record these I realized they're a bit muddier than I initially noticed just jammin' in the room. They're still decent for noodling around, but if I'm going to record with this thing they have to go I think.
Chords are done on the bridge pup... First run is on the neck pup and the second is on the bridge. I apologize in advance for the slop...

Played one at Guitar Center today!
Stayed in tune great (though I noticed that the tuners weren't very fine. You had to tune very slow to get accurate), sounded decent (lacked a bit of power and clarity but not horrible), finish was good, frets were leveled well, it played well, etc. Though the rosewood used for the fretboard was ugly. Nothing some black leather dye can't fix
The neck, however, was WONDERFUL! Even better than the RGA8!
I'll definitely be getting one!
Nice! I looked online and it appears not a single GC in Florida has one in stock. These sales guys bitch about 7s and 8s not selling well, but it's because they never have any in the store!
and I did a little test clip. I think it sucks but i had to show a friend quickly

The stock pickups arent all that bad
dang...lots of rg8 ngd threads. anyways here's mine w/lots of photos & more to come.
how the truss rod cover works...
Just bought a black one form Crazy Daves Music on Ebay. Total was 388 Euro shipped to Ireland and it should be here by 17th of December!
My lady is in the US over christmas, she is gonna try get me one
Just got a reply from a Swedish music shop called Deluxe Music in Stockholm. They said they're getting the RG8 in jan/feb, and they're hoping for a price of about 5000 sek. That's $749 and only about 70 bucks less than what the RGA8 goes for...
Now that the NGDs have come in... I wait for the pickup swap pics. A lot of people are talking about d-activators and lace pickups. Gonna be cool to see what people do (colors, pickup rings, pick guards, etc.)
Just catching up on some post here, and I figured I'd throw in a thought. I've got both RGA8's QM and BK... First week I got each, I gutted them, put new electronics and they play like a dream.
With that said... I compared the ones I have and this new one. If that store is going to only sell you for $70 difference. FIND A NEW STORE... they're taking your money. Big diffreences:
RGA8-Bk or QM (Arch top, locking hardware, mahogany body)
RG9-Bk or Wh (Flat top, standard bridge, no locking nut, "Basswood body")
Time to find an online retailer who will sell at a fair price...
The new Ibanez RG8 is awesome, just one drawback... only one truss rod! Does anyone know if this is going to cause a problem?
