The Ibanez RGIR28FE Iron Label 8-String Electric Guitar is designed for heavy metal guitarists who desire eight string beef! With a basic design of the RG series, Ibanez applied their expertise as leaders in 8-string guitar luthiery, modded and tweaked their way to building the perfect 8-string metal machine. A basswood body, rosewood fingerboard and 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, Ibanez equips the RGIR28FE Iron Label 8 string with the Nitro Wizard-8 neck which reaches a new level in terms of player comfort. The increased mass that eight strings require has been ingeniously shaped to feel as natural as possible to the six-string trained player.
The EMG 808 pickups in both bridge and neck positions are a favorite in the 8-string world for their well-earned reputation of producing amazingly layered textures of distortion. And the performance enhancing killswitch puts you in command of a head-turning strobe effect. With the purposefully Spartan Iron Label, you won’t find a feature here that doesn’t contribute directly to waking the dead.
