Ibanez RGMS8 overview

  • 1Description

Styled in black, the Ibanez RG Series RGMS8 is an eight-string electric guitar with a mahogany body and sleek, double-cutaway design. The guitar's five-piece, Wizard III-8 neck is fashioned out of maple and walnut, with a scale measuring 25.5 to 27.3". This multi-scale design accommodates the different hand positions guitarists naturally assume when moving around the neck, resulting in a more comfortable experience. Also, its ultimate 27.3" length improves the tone of typical metal down-tuning, ensuring a thicker, richer timbre than a shorter scale would. 

The instrument's jatoba fingerboard features 24 jumbo frets as well as offset white dot inlays that switch positions after the 12th fret. This makes for a striking, esoteric look.

For electronics, the RGMS8 offers two Array-8 MS humbucking pickups, one in the neck and the other in the bridge. A volume knob dictates the overall level, a tone knob controls your timbre, and a five-position pickup selector switches between different pickup configurations, including series and parallel wirings. Strings are affixed to the body by means of the fixed Mono-rail bridge, which isolates each string's vibration and fosters a precise sound.

Multi-Scale Neck
Equalized tension helps to create a more alive and open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi-scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
Fixed Mono-Rail Bridge
The Mono-rail bridge delivers excellent string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without affecting by the others.
