Any one have any experience playing them? I have a 7 string, but I would really like try out an 8 string and try to get that super low heavy edge. If you've played them, tell me a.) what you think. and b.) the best brand for one. and no I cant afford the awesome Ibanez prestige 8 string.

The best deal in the 8 string world is Agile hands down. They also offer the best options. Now if you want an overpriced black 8 string with EMG's look no further than Ibanez or ESP.

Agile is good for getting what are typically higher priced specs at a lower price.

That being said, no Agile plays like an Ibanez does.


I didn't really like the 8-string Ibanez neck But my Agile neck is gooooood stuff.

I haven't tried a 6 or 7 by Agile though...

I swear, I can't understand 8 strings. I could never play one. But Meshuggah make them sound Daaaamn good.


Anywho, try the ERG thread, there are some 8 string players there.

I'm stuck at six string, *sadface*

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

+1 Agile

Since there is no such thing as perfect tone, and every rig has differences (however slight they may be), I hereby declare this claim as bullshit.

Thats bull crap. I know of several guys who had both the Intrepid and the RG2228. Most of them sold the Ibby and kept the Agile.
