Shred with Prestige on This 8-string

The Ibanez Prestige RG852MPB solidbody electric is one killer 8-string guitar. It all starts with the distinctively sculpted, resonant, and beautifully balanced basswood RG body with a Mappa Burl top. It's a prime combination for stellar tone, and you also can't deny that it looks pretty sweet, too. For outstanding shredability, the Prestige RG852MPB gives you an alarmingly fast Wizard-8 Prestige neck and a flatter-than-Kansas birdseye maple fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets. You'll be able to conjure a range of aggressive tones from your amplifier with a pair of DiMarzio PAF-8 humbucking pickups, custom-designed for down-tuning. Get your hands on the magnificent Ibanez Prestige RG852MPB and prepare to shred!

Ibanez Prestige RG852MPB 8-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Wicked-fast Ultra-8 Prestige neck
  • Gibraltar Standard 8 bridge delivers monumental sustain and rock-solid tuning stability
  • Step up to the top-of-the-line RG Prestige Series
Wicked-fast Ultra-8 Prestige neck

Ibanez put production 8-string guitars on the map, largely thanks to the effortless playability of their Ultra-8 Precise neck. The Prestige RG852MPB takes that 8-string mojo to the max! The RG852MPB's wicked-fast Ultra-8 Prestige neck lets you execute lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons with silken ease, but it still gives you the substance you need for comfortable chording.

Gibraltar Standard 8 bridge delivers monumental sustain and rock-solid tuning stability

To give the Prestige RG852MPB unbeatable stability and sustain, Ibanez turned to their time-tested Gibraltar Standard 8 bridge. This simple fixed bridge design anchors solidly to the body, providing maximum string-to-string transfer. It also features a super-low profile and a smooth surface, making the RG852MPB super-comfortable to play and giving your picking hand an optimal degree of clearance for speed picking techniques. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love this bridge, and we think you will, too.

Picture doesn't do it justice

I own 2 other rg852 prestiges (Galaxy black) and they are just amazing guitars, the neck is the thinnest you will find on an 8 string PERIOD! I got this model for the different pick ups, the other 2 have EMGs (which I totally love) but I wanted my cleans to have more girth, and at 1st I wasn't sure about the paf8s but now I'm in love, they give each string it's own clarity, that is different from any 8 string I've owned or played. And the fret board is just fantastic, if you want to have a different guitar that will make your friends jellous, this is it!! Ibanez did s fantastic job making this guitar I'm in luv with it!! When you open the case you will b shocked at the look of the guitar and the beautiful molded case that it comes in. The price is worth what u get with this thing. Thank u ibanez and sweetwater for such an amazing guitar!!!
