Ibanez RG8 Standard, 8 String, White
The Ibanez RG8 features a 27in scale-length neck, unveiling a plethora of down-tuning possibilities. The RG8's Jatoba fingerboard, inlaid with classic white dots, enhances the RG8’s visuals and its jumbo frets enable all the wild string-bending you can manage. As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard II-8 neck is yet another achievement for the Ibanez design team in terms of comfort—comfort that translates into maximising player performance. Ibanez's proprietary, moderate output IBZ-8 pickups are designed to thrive in the down-tuned netherworld, while still delivering notable clarity. The Fixed-8 bridge boasts a low profile design, allowing plenty of picking hand freedom while optimising tuning stability.
The mysteries of the 8-string guitar beckon musically adventurous players from all over the world, but, until recently, such exploration was the privilege of only a lucky few. Now, Ibanez, the leader in 8-string electric guitar development, offers a high quality, yet affordable, 8-string experience. Behold, the RG8.
