Ibanez has taken their Ingenuity and design of the RG series to create the RG8 8-string guitar.
The mysteries of the 8-string have beckoned players everywhere, but until recently such exploration was the privilege of a lucky few. Now Ibanez, the leader in 8-string electric guitar development, brings the experience to the left-handed player.
Black as midnight finish cloaking its basswood body, a 27 inch scale neck opens up a plethora of downtuning possibilities. Its rosewood fingerboard with classic pearl dot inlays complete the visuals, and the jumbo frets grant license for all the string-bending you can bring.
As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard II-8 is yet another achievement for the Ibanez designers in terms of player comfort—comfort that translates into maximizing player performance. The proprietary IBZ humbucker are designed to thrive in the downtuned netherworld and yield a whole palette of thick, distorted tone textures.
