The RG series is a proven performer, now the highly responsive RGMS8 Multi Scale guitar is designed for down-tuning with a super-tight growl. Using the trapezoidal 27.2”/25.5” scale, the multi-scale neck construction provides an equalized tension that creates a lively, open tone.
Designed for playability, the slants are matched with the player’s hand angles to facilitate quick playing along with the flatling on the 12th fret. By setting the horizontal point close to bridge’s side, shredding in high frets is easy. The super-slim, ultra-comfortable 5-piece Maple/Walnut Wizard III neck provides solid stability for the increased tension of the extra strings, and the spacious Jatoba fingerboard 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. Ibanez original Array 8 MS pickups perfectly fit the bill not only in size fitted to the slanted mounting angle but also in sound.
