    That's it, we all bought or think about buying a RGA8 and then heavily mod it, so take some pictures and get some descriptions and fire them um and show us!

    I will post mine as soon as I have pics

    Here's mine. Some may have seen it already.

    It's got an alder body and a dimarzio d-activator.

    Here's my two:

    [​IMG]

    White one has emg's & the black has blackouts (Blackouts ftw).

    Both have had the back of the neck painted.

    Never had any issues with the nut or bridge popping out either.

    Recently acquired a Rg2228 & I can honestly say once you mod out a Rga8 it's just as good if not better.

    :yesway:

    I've been seriously considering picking up an RGA8 and putting in some BKPs. Although unless I can find a good used one fairly cheap I'd be spending nearly as much as a RAN Crusher 8, which I can spec with BKPs as a no-cost option. So I might just do that instead. :cool:

    Here is mine. Only neck and bridge are stock.

    Couldn't disagree more. The neck shape and finish is way superior to the RGA8, not to mention the overall quality. It sets up and plays easier, too.

    That white one is a total winner for me!!! This thing is so sexy!! Too bad that in Europe you have to wait for years until you get the white 808s...

    If you guys wouldn't mind me asking, about how much did the new bodies run you guys?
    As a lefty, I'm very interested in the RGA8, because I played a right-handed one, and I love the bridge, and the locking nut. My 8-string has a Hipshot bridge, and doesn't lock at the bridge, nut, or tuners, and my low Eb is always going out of tune, so I'd love to pick up an RGA8, and just comission a nice, new body if it was affordable. Otherwise I'd just buy another Agile.
