Hi guys, I'm looking for a nice Ibanez 8 string and I figured Jemsite would be the place to look for anything Ibby related.
I can budget up to around £450 or so, depending on what's on offer.
Any 8 string is a go except for anything with multiscale as I've never played one before and don't...
Got an RGA8 cheap.
First thing to do, put in some decent pickups. Whats the pickup of choice?
I was thinking of getting the Tosin Abasi Dimarzios, though most 8-strings tend to come with actives. Is there an advantage of actives over passives on an 8 string?
I'm selling my Ibanez RGA8. I upgraded the pickups to Seymour Duncan blackouts. The guitar is in mint condition. I'm going to stick to 7 string guitars which is why I'm selling it.
Pictures at link below. Includes hard shell case and original stock pick ups as well. (DiMarzio strap NOT included)...
Hey all, I'm getting my Ibanez RGA8 customized. I left it at a luthier, and I'm getting it refinished and let him put on a new bridge (simply because the fixed Edge 8 bridge popped out of the body like most of them do).
I'll update this thread when new pics arrive from him. Here are the first.
hey guys i have this barely used, amazing conditioned ibanez rga8 8 string guitar upgraded with Seymour Duncan Blackouts. this guitar blew my mind whe i first played it, the transition from my ibanez universe was so easy, the necks were very similar. the majority of this guitars specs correlate...
so i just got my BRAND NEW RGA8 today, and i know its not the best model out there, but for bout 800 bucks, i was expecting something much better than this...
1.) B string chimes plucked open, with nut locked, not with nut unlocked.
2.) Whole setup was pretty awful outta the box...
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...
Just received my RGA8 :D
the guitar is awesome, well finished. The only low points are the cheapo knob and the lack of case.
here's a group shot, sorry for the low quality pic :)
gonna play that monster now hahehe
Hello everyone. I recently picked up an RGA8 from another forum to try it out and have decided it's not for me.
I'd like to get $700 plus shipping to your location. It's in almost new condition with only a few light pick scratches and some light handling scratches (black guitar). Nothing that...
