Ibanez RG8 8-String Electric Guitar
The Ibanez RG8 is an eight-string electric guitar that features all the classic marks of the company's RG series such as the renowned slim, fast-paced and extremely playable Wizard neck. The RG8 also consists of a basswood body with standard through-body stringing and a fixed bridge. This allows a maximum sustain effect while the Ibanez AH-18 and AH-28 neck and bridge humbucker pickups provide an evenly-distributed tone that is rich and full.
What makes the Ibanez RG8 stand out from its peers is the affordable price; it can easily be argued that this is the single most affordable 8-string guitar on the market, and don't think that overall performance is lagging behind the company's top models because of this, because the tone has all the crunchiness, punch and force that a healthy guitarist needs. As most 8-string guitars, the Ibanez RG8 is most commonly used within the metal domain, and guitar-heavy vibe is clearly an area in which it excels the most. Additional features include black hardware to add that extra sleek feel in the esthetic department. If you're looking to extend your guitar range but just aren't certain about delving into the pricey models, RG8 is the perfect choice.
