An exceptional value with its string-through design, fixed bridge and slim Wizard II-8 neck.

It features all of the advantages of the Ibanez RG series including the famous slim, fast, and ultra-playable Wizard neck. Its basswood body has through-body stringing and a fixed bridge for maximum sustain while specially-designed Ibanez AH-18 and AH-28 humbucking pickups evenly reproduce all of the wide frequencies of which this 8-string is capable.

    Comments about Ibanez RG8 8-String Electric Guitar:

    While the 8-strings might attract you, be cautious. The RG8 is cheaply made and slapped together. The necks are indeed comfortable, but are known to have issues, such as warping and bulges that render the guitar useless. The pickups are not designed to properly accommodate this guitar, and the RG8 seems to have been designed in mind that most owners will simply swap them out for something much better.

    If you luck out and get a decent neck, then great, but again be careful as these are cheap and are known to have serious problems. Ibanez customer support is also shaky at best.

    Comments about Ibanez RG8 8-String Electric Guitar:

    Very cheaply made. The RG8 got had a bad neck and had to send it back to Ibanez. Buzzes horribly and can't be set up properly to eliminate buzz. Pickups are horrible and require a p/u swap. Cheaply made and slapped together. Save your $$$ and get a higher end 8--this thing is bad.
