Smile NGD (Ibanez prestige 8 string content)

Got this yesterday, it's an RG2228A,
awesome guitar! :rawk:

now I gotta learn how to play that thing....

at first I was a bit worried about 2 frets that were not filled/sealed 100% with wood filler, but looks like this won't cause any problems. I made a thread about it here:

Congratz on the new guitar, very cool indeed!! I wouldn't even know where to start with that.

How do you play an F chord with that guitar?

Re: NGD (Ibanez prestige 8 string content)

I tried playing an 8 string (Ibanez, Scheter, ESP) a couple of weeks ago.. I never felt so lost..


It was like a brand new instrument... I was able to adapt to a 7 string relatively quickly.. But an 8 stringer is a whole different animal..

Good luck!!!!

Lovely guitar dude!

But get some thicker strings! Something tells me you only have the .09-.64 set on there. That's nowhere close to being enough

Congrats!! I hope you'll have no problem adapting to an 8! It should be fun!

I second the notion of thicker strings. You may end up with the lowest string near an .80. I have a normal Artcore in standard, and my low E is still a .52.

Re: NGD (Ibanez prestige 8 string content)

Thanks everyone!

I think I will stick with these strings.
I have another 8 string (Agile) which has thicker string on it. Downside of that is that is it very hard to do bendings (the Agile also has a longer scale than the 2228 ).

Re: NGD (Ibanez prestige 8 string content)

What are the string?

G - B - E - A - D - G - B - E ?

B - E - A - D - G - B - E - A ?

I've never seen an 8 string in person.

Why can't you get these with a trem like Macalpine's. If you could I would consider it.

Imagine a white 8 string with original EDGE8
