RG Prestige with Eight Strings of Tonal RangeThe Ibanez RG2228M eight-string solidbody electric guitar is perfect when you want to expand your tonal options further than a 6- or 7-string guitar will allow. Like all RG Series guitars, the RG2228M is primed for metal with a fast 5-piece Wizard neck. The basswood body and maple fingerboard give a tone that's warm with a good deal of attack - perfect for everything from heavy chords to fast-shredding riffs. And with a fixed Edge III-8 bridge and active EMG 808 humbucking pickups, you'll get top-notch performance from the Ibanez RG2228M eight-string solidbody electric guitar.
Ibanez RG2228M Eight-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Custom 8-string humbucking pickups for articulate, aggressive tone
The Ibanez RG2228M is fitted with two active EMG 808 humbucking pickups. When you're deploying a low F-string, there's no use even trying a passive pickup. Designed specifically for 8-string guitars, the 808 gives you the clearest, fattest low end you've ever felt from a guitar pickup. It's this kind of tonal versatility that makes the Ibanez RG2228M ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.
Fixed-bridge stability for low tunings
The Ibanez RG2228M sports a fixed bridge, which means no more tuning hassles due to a floating tremolo. Your lowered tunings will be more stable, and the string tension will feel pleasantly looser. When you change tunings at the gig, you'll be ready to go without messing with the tremolo or loosening locking nuts.
A tried-and-true rock machine
The Ibanez RG Prestige Series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks in no small part to the effortless playability of its Wizard neck profile. You also get a ton of wide-ranging tone, and scorching hot looks to boot! The Ibanez RG2228M combines the best design and features of the RG Prestige series for a guitar you can count on for a lifetime.
