I finally finished up my RG8 I got back in November (i think). I still may add binding but not totally sure right now. Here is a list of what was done to it:

EMG 808xs in Ivory
"Ivory" Switch Tip (trying to find a better one to match the PUPs)
Knobs (Black with Ivory dot)
Locking Tuners w/ Pearloid buttons
Strap Locks
Custom Hand Cut Antiqued Ivory Pickguard

Strings are Special K 11-86 Gauge

I usually don't like that style pickguard but it really works on this RG8. It looks awesome man, congrats on finishing the project.

Ridiculously awesome man :yesway:

edit: Anyone think the ivory EMGs would look good against a stock black RG8? I'm torn between white and ivory haha.

Thanks for all the kind words, I'm beyond happy with it. Makes me smile every time I open the case.

I liked the Ivory against it if you could find something else to accent it with, if not I'd go with the white. Ivory by itself sort of looks. . . dirty.

What an awesome and refined look!
Did you cut the pickguard yourself?
Im looking into setting my DC800 with one and any info would be greatly appreciated :D

I did not, a local tech did (well formerly local, I moved recently). I just ordered a blank from AllParts and he did the rest. Spectacular job.

That's what I was thinking. This is killer, though, my favourite RG8 yet :)
