Cloaked in a blacker than black finish, the Ibanez S8 8-string leads the pack with form and function. Featuring pearl dot inlays which accent its rosewood fretboard, the S8 is fast playing with plenty of tone. Lurking beneath the S Series graceful 3-D shape is mahogany specifically chosen for this S Series guitar. Light enough to amaze in terms of comfort, heavy enough to provide the tone and sustain that the S Series players have come to expect.
As the originators of the thin, fast neck, the Wizard-8 27 inch neck is another point of pride with the Ibanez designers. The increased mass that eight strings require has been ingeniously shaped to feel as natural as possible to the six-string trained player. The AH series humbuckers provide an impressive palette of tone textures, leaning particularly toward the gritty side of town. The Gibraltar Standard 8 bridge provides an super-stable anchor, and minimizes string contact.
