They call it Mr Clean!
Yeah, it was an F key if I remember right, at least on the green screen. I would tell the clerk to hit it for me every time, and they had a "?" over their heads every time.
Congrats. I picked up an RG2228 as my first 8 string and still haven't "upgraded" to anything else. I have a pair of Abasi Fluences sitting at home waiting to be installed to replace the EMG 808s. I also picked mine up as a steal, it was $900 CAD at a local guitar because it had been used by one of their guitar instructors and he had already bought it at a discount. Basically flawless other than a small chip, and already had the 18V mod on the EMG.
Despite not playing 8s anymore, I do miss my 2228 frequently. Hell of a workhorse. HNGD, m8!
I’m obsessed with this guitar
I can’t put it down
I have severe gas for the white one with maple board. Congrats
How is the neck profile on these? C or D shape? Overall thickness? I’ve been curious about the 2228 for a while now. HNGD!
Definitely a very flat D. The back has very little curvature to it, and then it only curves up at the ends. It's also extremely thin, for an 8 string. I find it really comfortable to play, but takes some adjustment in technique from playing a 6 or even 7 string.
It feels like a Wizard 8
The post above is accurate
It’s extremely thin, by far the thinnest 8 string neck I’ve felt or heard of (besides high end custom guitars )
It’s actually in between a C And D like just when it’s about to be a strong D it curves ever so slightly
The real flat D would be the M80M IMHO
Actually the M80M neck feels as good but just the playability is slightly more agile on my guitar IMHO
hope that helps
Yeah it's so wide and thin you don't really notice the shoulders much IMO. Only other 8s I've found with necks that feel similar is Aristides.
Hmm thanks for the response guy's. From pictures they have always looked a little bit more curved but its hard to tell unless it's in your hand. I didn't like the profile of an old 7321 I had. It essentially had a flat back but the 7620 I liked because it was more curved and a little bit thicker. I'll have to try to find one locally somewhere that I can return it if I don't like it.
It is curved man. It’s weird though because of the nature of the width and feel of the wizard it doesn’t “feel” curved, but your eyes are accurate
Not a “D” shape at all. That requires shoulders. The 2228 is a shallow, thin C, all day long.
I actually had this one for a bit but was frustrated at Sam Ash for their inept description and ignoring the hanger damage and the missing fine tuner. When I returned they apologized up and down and commented on how they do their very best to describe everything blah, blah. Then they repost with same exact, none description.
It’s a good one. You got a good deal and I’m stoked an SSOer rescued this one. I ended up with a slightly cleaner but less lively one.
Enjoy man, you done well, it’s a good one.
The fine tuner is in so no problem there
The hangar damage is luckily beyond the playing area so it’s like nicks on the back of a guitar who cares u know
But yeah I mean $625 for a guitar with nearly mint condition (just the hangar scrapes ofc) I’m happy
What did they charge you ? Before Returning .?
750 which wasn't really a bad deal
Thanks for returning it in great condition lol lol rofl
It’s so loud you had to put the cans on.
HAHAHAHAH ur a funny muthaf@@A man
