Blast out aggressive 8-string madness with this Japanese-made Prestige. A pair of powerful DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups add beef while retaining clarity.

"Amazing 8 String"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am a big fan of the RG guitar series by Ibanez, and I've wanted to dive into 8 string playing for the metal and tapping options. I must say the trickiest thing about this guitar is just finding out how to make tones (probably the same for most 8-strings). You really just have to cut out the bass a bit. Aside from the learning curve of tone-making, the playability and the coil tap are amazing features on this. The neck is quick, like most RG's, and the finish is more interesting than a normal, matte black. This thing is one of my favorite guitars to play!
Metal, Jazz, Fusion, Rock, anything with a Groove
