Ibanez wrote the book on production 8-string guitars
8-string guitars are a breed apart, and they can bring an otherworldly intensity to your music. To prove the point, check out Animals As Leaders to hear dueling Ibanez 8-strings as majestically wielded by Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes. Why Ibanez? Well, the company pretty much wrote the book on production 7- and 8-string electric guitars. The Ibanez RG8 sports an ideal 27" scale that keeps your low strings sounding nice and tight, even with dropped tunings. Ibanez's 8-string design and construction techniques (a 5-piece neck and a string-through-body fixed bridge) contribute to the RG8's unique, authoritative, eminently musical voice.
IBZ-8 humbuckers deliver articulation, sustain, and tonal versatility
The Ibanez RG8 is fitted with two IBZ-8 humbucking pickups. Regardless of the tuning you're employing, you get clear articulation, long sustain, and awesome tonal versatility. Designed specifically for 8-string guitars, the IBZ-8 gives you the clearest, fattest low end you've ever felt from a guitar pickup, along with sparkling highs. It's this kind of tonal versatility that makes the Ibanez RG8 ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.
A universe of tuning options lets you forge your signature sound
There are quite a few ways to tune an 8-string guitar. The Ibanez RG8 comes to you with a factory drop tuning of 1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, and 8F. Where you go from there is your business. Tune in major thirds. Bracket your standard 6-string guitar tuning with a low B and a high G or A. The possibilities are enticing, aren't they? Ibanez RG8 is an affordable opportunity to forge your signature sound. Go for it.
