Get the 8-string experience in a quality affordable package with the Ibanez RG8 electric guitar. 8 string electric guitars maintain a certain level of intrigue when it comes to the tones guitarists can achieve. Previously players on a budget would have been hard pressed to find an instrument that meets their criteria without breaking the bank.
The basswood body and flamed maple top lets the RG8’s 27 neck open up to a myriad of different down-tuning possibilities. The design of the rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with classic pearl dots, makes the RG8 easy on the eyes. Guitarists that like aggressive string bending will enjoy the jumbo frets. A player’s comfort with the style of neck is paramount to finding the right guitar for them, and the fast and thin neck called the Wizard II-8 made by the Ibanez design team is unmatched in terms of comfort, which directly correlates with superior performance. Proprietary IBZ-8 pickups are designed to thrive in the down-tuned netherworld and yield a whole new palette of thick, distorted tone textures.
