The Ibanez RGMS8 8-String Electric Guitar in Black delivers the raw power that Ibanez 8-strings are known for, with a truly dark finish to match. The graceful playability of this extended range guitar is truly outstanding, and testament to Ibanez's ability to craft exceptional guitars. This guitar isn't just for down-tuned metallers or Djent enthusiasts, the smooth timbre and tonality of the RGMS8 suits any and every genre you can imagine.
The mahogany body of the Ibanez RGMS8 8-String Electric Guitar is carved into the highly recognisable RG-shape, with its dual-cutaway profile, and contoured slopes that give unprecedented access to the upper register. The mahogany gives the guitar rich warmth that permeates each and every note. Married to the mahogany is a gorgeous poplar burl top that has been treated to a divine black finish, giving the guitar an aesthetic worthy enough to match its luxurious timbre. The finish is protected by a slender yet highly resilient layer of urethane, guaranteeing the exquisite paintwork lasts for as long as possible.
Joined to the Ibanez RGMS8’s body is a five-piece maple/walnut Wizard III-8 neck that has been strengthened with KTS Titanium Reinforcement rods, and carved to a fast, flat and slim profile. The guitar’s extra-long scale of 27” offers clear articulation and long sustain, while the factory-set down tuning of 1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, 8F really opens up the tonal possibilities. The neck of the Ibanez RGMS8 is topped by a Jatoba fingerboard with jumbo frets and adorned with white dot inlays.
Equipped for thunder
The RGMS8 is equipped with a pair of Array-8 pickups, fitted in the neck and bridge positions. This fantastic combination translates the warm character of the body with absolute transparency, whilst retaining the superb articulation infused into each note thanks to the neck and fingerboard partnership. Control over your tone comes in the form of a three-way selector switch, and master volume and master tone control knobs.
Ibanez’s fixed bridge 8 creates a seamless connection between the strings and body, allowing it to uphold intonation with absolute precision. The black tuning machines maintain tuning integrity throughout the most vigorous of performances.
