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. Whether you favor a hardtail (fixed) bridge or our industry-leading locking tremolo system, the RG is a precision instrument. Made for modern metal guitarists, the RG8 features a custom 27" neck with lowered factory tuning to handle the increased string stress. IBZ-8 pickups and a Wizard II-8 neck add to the tonal possibilities of this screaming 8-string guitar.

Fast, flat and slim 5pc Maple/Walnut neck.

IBZ-8 pickups
