The RG8570Z features an African Mahogany body with a superior warm tone and rich resonance, topped with a stunning 4mm AAA Flamed Maple. Ibanez j.custom guitars are manufactured by an elite group of highly skilled luthiers trained to produce instruments of uncompromised quality. The j.custom designation represents every advance in design and technology Ibanez has developed over the decades: the best woods, neck, fret treatments, perfect pickup combinations, and reliable hardware. Each j.custom guitar is masterfully crafted to the highest standards to ensure unparalleled sound, maximum playability and exquisite beauty.
The Selected Rosewood fretboard features the iconic Tree-of-Life inlay. The Super Wizard 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck provides exceptional playability and rock solid stability even under the most extreme playing conditions, and the Velvetouch finish on neck back and j.custom fret edge treatment ensures just right feel and ease of playing.
The Edge-Zero tremolo bridge features a lower profile design for playing comfort and a stud lock function for superior tuning stability – plus, the ZPS3 Zero Point System further enhances tuning stability and ease of tuning. The DiMarzio Air Norton, True Velvet, and Tone Zone pickups offer depth, warmth, and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch. Also included are Gotoh strap locks. A hard-shell case is included.
