Is there anyone who has experience with this 8 string guitar? If so, how would you compare it to the RG 2228 (or w/e the type number is)? I might be in the market for buying this guitar but its fairly hard to get, hence my asking for opinions.
My Gear:

Ibanez RG 7 EXFX (27'' scale, 2x EMG 707)

Mesa/Boogie Studio .20 Caliber

Line 6 Studio POD GX
