    Grabbed an RG8 the other week from my local guiturd center, and it finally showed up today! I haven't had much time with it, so no real opinions yet! Though I can say that it is NOTABLY smaller and lighter than my Agile, though the shorter scale is a bit weird for me at the moment.
    I plan on refretting, replacing the tuning pegs and pickups, and maybe even getting the beast swirled!
    I'm thinking I'll do some clips and maybe a video with it, so I'll put them up here when I do them!
    Anyways here are some pictures:

    More updates soon!

    EDIT: dude at guitar center goes "alright, just a bit more paperwork, and you're ready to go home and get your meshuggah on!"
    bout a minute later "alright, you're all set to get djentin!"

    what a day it's been

    Oh, and if you can find one, replace the bridge on her. If you can't find a bridge, get a new saddle set. It'll make a hell of a difference.

    Happy NGD! I hope you have as much fun with your RG8 as I'm having with mine! Also, a friend of mine introduced me to your music a few weeks ago and I've been rocking it since...that metal cover of "What Makes You Beautiful" gets stuck in my head on quite a regular basis. \m/

    Refretting doesn't make sense unless you want frets made from a different material, or you really want your frets to be larger.

    Monsieur Stalin, your Wave of Babies clip sounds very good. You really know how to make sounds.
