The RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength. The Ibanez RG8 8-string electric guitar is no different.

The Ibanez RG8 features a fast, flat, and slim Wizard II-8 5-piece maple/walnut neck with KTS Titanium Reinforcement rods. IBZ-8 pickups that deliver deep, warm tone without muddiness, even when down-tuned, and a 27-inch scale neck for clear articulation, long sustain, and a broad range of tonal possibilities. This guitar comes set for down-tuning from the factory (1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, 8F).

Other features include a basswood body, rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlay and jumbo frets, and black hardware. Case not included.

I love this guitar.


PROS: Cost. Great value, well worth it at the price point. Neck. Awesome neck shape and speed. Easy to reach the top string because of the neck shape. Hardware. Good smooth feel with the tuning pegs. Love the black bridge, it's easy to adjust and looks great. Body. Surprisingly, it's way lighter than I expected. I have a couple 6-strings that are much heavier. Pickups. Good to start out with. I'll keep them for a while. Visually. The white model is very attractive. The black hardware contrasts it beautifully. And, the 5-piece maple/walnut neck is gorgeous. CONS: Strings. The stings that came on it are unusable, very floppy, barely bigger than what I use on one of my 6-strings. Pickups. The pickups will need to be changed at some point, but if you're not needing to play shows with it immediately, they're good enough. Visually. This is more a nit picky thing. In the pictures the fretboard looks a lot darker than it does in person. It could just be a trick of the eye with it being on a white background. Also, there is a dark smudge on the top of my headstock, but to be honest I haven't taken any guitar cleaner to it. I've only tried to clean it with my finger and with a paper towel. FINAL THOUGHTS: I love this guitar.

Awesome choice for someone interested in trying out an 8 string. Ibanez doesn't disappoint with the RG 8 Model. Great tone at lower tunings, doesn't mud up. Great playability. This is a hands on review from Dylan @ Sam Ash Sarasota
