Ibanez also based on that guitar custom models for Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah) , Ihsahn (Emperor), Tony Macalpine and James “Munky” Shaffer (Korn) as at the very begining there was nothing on market like 8-string guitar . In many sources you can read that RG2228 started this whole revolution in music so if you are looking for something worth investment – maybe it is good to invest in world’s first mass produced 8-string model which defined new genres. 

As for the string I recommand to use the hardest ones (as Fredrik has) as the stock strings are too soft . Once You have the proper strings - you don't need the longer scale length. 

Mine guitar looks and plays great for 13 years old guitar . There is only one small harm after last fret, on the edge of the fretboard, but this could happen in factory (many Ibanezs have it in this place). The input jack can be changed in future as it doesn't operate perfect. 

The bridge has some signs of use (due to muting the strings and regulation of it). If you work on it you can easily adjust the bridge to your favorite setting with very low action. This type of bridge is not a floating trem like Floyd Rose , it is fixed , like in old Mick Thomson signature model, but it is very good for that kind of guitar.

Original custom case made for this model is also included. Key not included.
