NGD.. I got a new guitar

Postby BetterOffShred » Sat Oct 21, 2017 12:05 am

Fuck Yeah!!! I got my RG852... It's the bomb!! :!!!: :!!!:
Seriously I love this thing. It's the 4th Ibanez I have and the only 8 string but it's a real winner. The volume knob is greased light ing and I've been running my reverberation machine and doing eerie volume swells with bright mode ambiance all night.

I refuse to buy an 8 string because I would stop playing all other music than Meshuggah covers. Would probably lose my job, neglect my family... it would just be

It's actually a satin finish. And the "holes" in the burl are not filled. It's kind of nutty, but I like it :drool: Sometimes when I'm really into it I lay my ear against the upper horn while I play.. And this guitar is basically almost deafening it resonates so much. It's bananas!! :joy:

These are all good points. I have wanted a blue Ibanez 8 string since I went back to school and I finally could afford it .. so I bought one. It's really cool man. I honestly haven't Chugged on it yet. Well.. a few gallops on the low E (Ebeadgbe) I've been using my reverberation machine and the Polypus Supreme, and then the Boneshaker, but basically all of my pedals are still in a box since I moved. It's pulling strange sounds out of me, I need to go unpack a delay or 5.

This is my first 8 string, though I have visited a few at the local guitar center numerous times.. but it feels like going to a massage parlor, without the happy ending. And then your hand smells like fish and rusted metal when you leave. I have pretty big hands, so the neck isn't really that much different than either of my 7 strings. The upper strings have more tension so the bends take a little more mustard to crank like a full step on the b strong at like the 14th fret, but no different than the 10's on my standard tuned 7620.

I got a set of 9-80 Ernie ball I want to put on today to see if I like it. I definitely like the E and B tuning on the extra 2 strings.

The pickups sound pretty good but I won't say much till I've cranked it up through the Rectumfrier with the tubescreamer. The bridge PU with the Bright Star mode on the RM and the gain turned up to about 2:00 and blend at about 11:00 is really fun.

And yes I'm an asshole for starting my own NGD thread rather than posting in an existing thread.. but as we all know the search function here leaves something to be desired :no:

Thanks for looking guys :thumb:
