The RGIM8MH represents the obvious, ultimate choice for guitarists ready to plumb new depths in metal and beyond. While the trapezoidal 27.2”/25.5” scale, multi scale pattern of the RGIM8MH may initially seem strange or intimidating to the novice, initiates quickly take to how this design optimizes individual string tension to create a more open or alive tone that not only expands harmonic complexity, but also offers a more comfortable playing experience.
Ibanez Iron Label RG8MH 8-STring Electric Guitar Features
- Mahogany body
- Nitro Wizard 5-piece Maple/Bubinga neck
- Rosewood fretboard
- Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge
- EMG 909 active pickups
The RGIM8MH features a mahogany body for a fat sound, and matched with a Nitro Wizard 5-piece maple/bubinga neck, these diverse woods work together to create a brighter tone that brings both clarity and definition to even the deepest notes of the lower spectrum. Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed, the RGIM8MH features a spacious rosewood fretboard that both enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation. Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings and facilitates flawless intonation. Highly responsive EMG 909 active pickups offer a beefed-up low-end and a super-tight overall distortion sound that’s both articulate and responsive.
As the legion of converts to the made-for-metal Iron Label series continues to grow, Ibanez continues to work at providing new instruments for those guitarists who choose to take the road less traveled. In keeping with this objective, Ibanez has, once again, broken new ground with the introduction of the RGIM8MH.
