Product Description

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.

Awesome Guitar!!!
Your general opinion of this product.
I am very very pleased with this 8 string. I have been playing 7 string guitars for the past 10 years and decided it was time to move up another string (or down...whatever lol). I was trying to save for a prestige then Ibanez unveiled this one. I bought it immediately and could not be happier.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
So far I have not had a problem with this guitar at all. The hardware all works fine and I haven't had any problems with the electronics. I'd say this is a great instrument for people who can't afford a prestige but still want good quality.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I'm usually not a fan of active pickups but the EMG 808 humbuckers in this guitar are very clean and evenly voiced. The F# doesn't sound muddy at all. Had considered swapping for Dimarzio but I think I'll stick with these for now. Much better than what comes in the cheaper 8 strings.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish on this guitar was amazing. From the rosewood fretboard to the gloss black paint and the white binding. Looks awesome!!! Wish they would make one inverted that's white with black binding but still very pleased with the way this guitar looks.
