Heavy Metal Heritage Ibanez RG electric guitars have decades of heavy metal street cred. If you're looking to crack some skulls at your next head-banger, try adding the raw depth of an eighth string to your scales. Dual EMG 808 humbucking pickups -- the first production 8-string pickups ever made -- add that rich fullness to riffs that metalheads crave. In addition to the standard volume knob and 3-way selector switch, the RGIR28FE is equipped with a kill switch that's not only useful for taming a runaway effects loop, but can be utilized for a stunning strobe-like effect too.
One Heck of a Neck Designing a 27" scale neck for an 8-string electric guitar is no simple task, but that's exactly what Ibanez has achieved with the Nitro Wizard-8 five-piece maple and walnut neck. While understandably wider than your typical lesser-stringed model, the RGIR28FE's neck is thin and sports a large 15.75" fingerboard radius so it's comfortable to play, despite its size in the upper octave. It's also got a sleek polyurethane finish to reduce friction as you're blazing up and down eight strings of glory. And it's reinforced with a titanium truss rod, so can pitch-bend with a brick and it won't bend the neck -- though of course you'd never do that to your 24 unmarked jumbo frets and rosewood fingerboard.
