Ibanez RGDMS8 Multi-Scale Electric Guitar, 8-String

With a longer scale for deep, thick low notes, the Ibanez RGDMS8 is perfect for metal, with a fast neck and balanced string tension, even when down-tuned.

My first 8 string multiscale and I've been waiting for this guitar to be available for over a year. It was well worth the wait. I did get another 8 string while I waited but this one definitely tops the one I bought months before. It's aggressive looking, the Fishmans are lethal, it's lighter than most 8 strings I've played, and stays in tune very well. I will say that I was disappointed when I took it out of the box. The strings were cut way too short when the factory installed them. Not even wrapped around the post once, just halfway through. I do buy new strings when I buy new guitars but still.. The post for the 8th string is too short for it to wrap around it when tuning, and the 8th string (.80) doesn't go all the way through the post hole. Besides that, it's a solid built guitar.
I was afraid that the 8th string was going to be muddy especially with 9 string pickups, but no. I have it tuned to drop F# and the 8th string is very clear and not muddy at all. It chuggs and shreds.
Very versatile with only 1 knob and a bottom voicing switch.
The guitar was made well minus the string and post issue.
Definitely is. I think it's worth more than the listed price.
