    Look cool. Can't say I dig the looks of the bridge :spock: - saddles looks just fine, though..
    Now, when are Ibanez going to come up with a multiscaled No.9?

    :shred: Nice to hear/read some comparison. I honestly have no idea if I could use a 9 string but a huge part of me wants to get one for the hell of it. They both look mean and would be so much fun to noodle around on.

    I've been trying to stop myself buying one for a few weeks now... to use it for a kind of "narrower tuning" like minor 3rds or something like that...

    This post is not helping... nope nope nope... my wallet is running away from me...

    That RG9 looks sick for the price.

    I wish they would make that exact same spec as an eight string. I dig everything about the RG90 apart from the ninth string. A prestige RG80BKPISH would be badass. One of the things that always irked me with the factory RG eight strings is how they used the 27 inch scale but left the bridge in the position of a 25.5 inch scale which moved everything forward making the horns fatter and the guitars more neck heavy.

    Thanks for sharing dude, they both look awesome. I honestly found my RG8 to be an amazing sounding and playing guitar, so it's good to hear that the RG9 is even nicer. May pick one up just to play with.

    Side note: I saw some dude named simonXsludge liked a couple of my photos on Instagram, had no idea you were someone from SSO. :lol:

    I didn't even think I could use a 9-string, but that RG90 is realllllly tempting....

    My local GC got an RG9, first thing I noticed (besides the huge neck) was the fretboard radius. It's essentially flat (37") and felt unusual but I liked it. If I had unlimited funds I would probably pick one of these up and use it for tapping in a close interval tuning.

    Damn, I like the RG90 but I don't know if I could Justify spending $3000 on it just for novelty purposes (For me anyways I know people can make them sound amazing lol) I was thinking about the Quilted RG9 though.

    The RG9 ships with the hard case shown in the pics. It's one of the nicest cases I've ever had, really chunky. Had to show the shop where I bought it the fact that their website said "hard case included" before they were prepared to go and dig it out for me, though.

    sorry for bumping this thread, after reading specs I wonder myself where will you find that 0.090 guitar string that need the 9th?? The most thick D'Addario FOR GUITAR is a 0.080NW...

    The RG9 C# tuning machine can take bass strings, as can the bridge.
    But yes, Kalium. All the way.

    Even though a 9 is way too much for me, that RG90 is so lush.
