    Here is mine I got in early fall. I am trying to figure out which pickups to put it in right now. I'm leaning towards juggs but I'm gonna wait and weigh out my options. This guitar has got me back into playing so much so that I feel my skills actually starting to improve. God these guitars are perfect!

    Anyone have pickup suggestions that give that Jugg clarity? Something for straight rhythm based tones for a bridge pickup?

    Had issues with a DCM100 but should have another on the way.

    I suddenly really want an RGD7UC, too...

    I figured this would be the best place for a discussion like this - how much further do you guys think Ibanez will take the RGD line? Seeing as its beloved brother, the RGA, was almost entirely discontinued, do you think it will go the way of the white rhino, or will we see more finishes next year? I personally love the satin finish, but do you think we'll get gloss+ibanez galaxy colors, or are they going to stay with bat mobile-sleekness?

    wow Cardinal, thats a bummer, i hope everything turns out fine man ;)
    and @GiveUpGuitar, i really hope they expand the RGD line with new colours and more models in general, i also hope they bring back Prestige RGAs (6s and 7s), that would be so awesome, but lets wait for NAMM, lets see what they really come up with.

    Not produced by Ibanez but people into the RGD shape might appreciate it.

    RGD8 I built last year:

    Mine is a stock 2127z, but I did just add a Fender Active Halo guitar wall hanger!

    I did add a graphite Couch seatbelt strap too!

    I don't even know what this elastic band thing is, but it is great for muting the strings behind the nut!

    It's not really an RGD mod, but I did get it a 3727 as a friend!

    I'm DYING to get my hands on a RGD 6 string. I'd love them to bring those back as well as more matte colors. I think it looks great on the RGDs. I love the Dino Red color (even if I don't think I've ever heard a FF song before) and I wasn't huge on the Purple on the other RGD2127 so I'm hoping they get a nice upgrade this upcoming year for sure!

    I fear this thread will get locked if it goes down the wish-list road. But man I hope they switch to the Lo Pro 7 next year.

    And I haven't heard a Fear Factory song in 15 years, but I still love the Dino sig.

    Surely 500k unless they used the BKP pots which are slightly higher, I think. But they wouldn't use 250k with regular humbuckers
