NGD RGA-8

Got it yesterday! It's really easy to adapt, if you're already used to 7 strings.

Love the archtop!

Neck may not be prestige, but it feels nice and it's really comfortable. Pickups are not great, but for now they're really nice (maybe blackouts in the future).

No complains about Indonesian craftsmaship so far, BUT there is a fine tuner that needs to be replaced, as it "jams" in the upper registry (no better way to describe this). I hope that it won't damage the brigde 'till then.

Now to the pics









and a pic with its "older brother"

Amazingly clear! Exactly what I wanted. Distortion's great too, but not as hot as I would like (thus the D-Activator on the bridge). Hopefully, by next week, I'll have two or three new tracks uploaded on my band's Myspace (myspace.com/humangus), so that you'll hear it in action.

Re: NGD RGA-8

Hmm... the strings don't seem to sag under their own weight. Clearly you aren't tuned low enough.

It just takes a while to find good sounds out of my Boss GT-8 that suits to the low notes
The pups are a bit muddy and not so high output, but gotta manage with them now.

I find the pickups muddy too (q-tuners spoiled me lol). I'm going for SD Blackouts in a couple of months (hopefully).
