New Guitar Day: Ibanez Iron Label 8-string RG

WOO! It's here! Bought this from the Ibanez Guitar Centre in Adelaide, after trying to find one here in Melbourne with no luck (only one local store even bothered to reply to my email, can you believe it?). So far so awesome! I've already noticed that it's bringing things out of my playing that I don't do on my 7-strings, especially in terms of extended chord voices and fingerpicky things.

I'll be replacing the stock EMG 808s with a Seymour Duncan Pegasus and Sentient soon, althoguh I'll hang on to the EMGs for the occasional recording session. I can't recommend this guitar highly enough.

Wow, I wouldnt know what to do with an 8 string - I have a hard enough time playing a 6 ...but if I was going to try an 8 string that looks like an awesome guitar...congratulations!!!

Very cool man! Happy NGD! Hope to see a vid soon .

P.S. It's true about the local Australian stores. Especially here in Sydney. I've experienced nothing but disappointment, and that's with actually going into the stores ready to spend money. It's as though the sales people don't really give a rats about service or wanting to sell anymore.

Congratulations Petie and cannot wait to hear what you do with it.

I'm glad my local music store actually has great salespeople who are also fairly knowledgeable for the most part.
