See, it’s stuff like this that ensures I remain an Ibanez geek even though I have guitars by a few different brands now. Ibanez has unveiled the RG8, an 8-string addition to their RG Fixed line, available in white or black. It’s a full 27″ 8-string (which comes factory tuned 1D#, 2A#, 3F#, 4C#, 5G#, 6D#, 7A#, 8F) with passive Ibanez humbuckers which will quite easily come out to make way for replacements if you wish to upgrade. That’s what I’m planning to do: I’ve been looking for an 8-string so I could do pickup reviews, but everything’s way out of my non-existent price range. Not these though! You can pick these bad boys up for $399 from Musician’s Friend! Here are some links to do just that:
