As the legion of converts to the "made-for-metal" Iron Label series continues to grow, Ibanez continues to work at providing new instruments for those guitarists who choose to take the road less traveled. In keeping with this objective, Ibanez has, once again, broken new ground with the introduction of the RGIF8--the first ever production multi-scale 8-string electric.
While the trapezoidal 27.2"/25.5" scale, multi-scale pattern of the RGIF8 may initially seem strange or intimidating to the novice, initiates quickly take to how this design optimizes individual string tension to create a more "open" or "alive" tone that not only expands harmonic complexity, but also offers a more comfortable playing experience.
The RGIF8 features an Ash body finished in a transparent stain that allows the natural markings of the wood's grain to emerge, creating a dark, dramatic effect. Matched with a Nitro Wizard 5-piece Maple/Bubinga neck, these diverse woods work together to create a brighter tone that brings both clarity and definition to even the deepest notes of the lower spectrum.
Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed, the RGIF8 features a spacious bound Rosewood fretboard that both enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation. Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes "cross-talk" between strings and facilitates flawless intonation. Highly responsive EMG 909X active pickups offer a beefed-up low-end and a super-tight overall distortion sound that's both articulate and responsive.
Simply put: the RGIF8 represents the obvious, ultimate choice for guitarists ready to plumb new depths in metal and beyond.
