The S5528LW 8-string features an exotic African Black Limba capped Mahogany body and super-rigid Ibanez Ultra-8 neck—constructed of five, glued, solid pieces of Maple/Wenge—to accommodate 27” scale string tension, and maintain superior tone and sustain. Electronics include a pair of US made DiMarzio D Activator 8 high-output pickups for strong, percussive, low notes with balanced highs that ‘cut’ without being ‘piercing.’
The original low-profile Gibraltar Standard II-8 Bridge, designed for precise intonation adjustment, playing comfort, and great sustain, combine with super smooth Gotoh MG-T locking tuners for superior tuning stability.
