The Ibanez RG8 RG 8 String Electric Guitar in Black is all the great quality you would expect from an Ibanez guitar at a great quality price. Its Wizard II-8 five piece neck, a mixture of maple and walnut, provides comfortable and fast playability - perfect for an 8-string guitar. A set of IBZ-8 Pickups give this guitar an intense tone without making it sound dense, even in down tuning. The RG8 has a 27" Scale neck allowing a wider range of octaves. At such a great price it would be a shame to miss out on this guitar.
