Good quality guitar but is not for me.
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is solid and well made but the neck did not seem comfortable for me. I have never been a fan of thin profile necks, which may be suitable for lead playing but not too much for rhythm. This problem is more noticeable in 7 and 8 string guitars. Fretting the added lower strings seems easier on a modern c-style neck. This is for my hand type and may be very different for you. Also, the pickups are very weak and do not give justice to the potential of this instrument, but swapping out pickups is very common practice for any level of guitar. Positives of this guitar are fit, finish, and construction; a great price that allows you to upgrade it later on, and is light in weight and good looking.

good price break on blemished RG8
What is your opinion of this product?
I was concerned about blemished model but price was good so I went for it. The high e edge of fret board between nut and first fret was a little roughed up. The string ferals in body were a little out of alignment (c#). The walnut strips in neck are a little leaning to one side. Other than that, the guitar set up quick with just string height and pickup adjust. Plays very nice and workmanship is not bad other than what i mentioned...

Fantastic Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
This is not only the best value around for an 8-string, but it surpasses guitars beyond this price range. A lot of review say "best for the money," but it's not just that. It's a great guitar on its own merit. This is a guitar that should be the standard for 8-string guitars.

Good Starting Point
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a good cheap guitar if you are looking into your first 8 sting guitar. For the price its hard to beat. Very few large name companies are using extended scale guitars, so this is a nice fit, if you're looking for that.

Kharmuh guitarist reviews the Ibanez RG8
Your general opinion of this product.
I love the feel of the RG8. Being a 7 string player for the past 12 years, I knew it would take a little while to get used to the wider fretboard. After a day, I was used to it and using the RG8 to replace my main guitar.
