Ibanez wrote the book on production 8-string guitars

8-string guitars are a breed apart, and can bring an otherworldly intensity to your music. To prove the point, check out Animals As Leaders to hear dueling Ibanez 8-strings, as majestically wielded by Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes. Why Ibanez? Well, the company pretty much wrote the book on production 7- and 8-string electric guitars. 'Nuff said.

Your fingers will fly on this super-fast Nitro Wizard neck

One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the Nitro Wizard neck on the 8-RGIR28FE Iron Label is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords. From the first time your fingers let loose on the 8-RGIR28FE's Nitro Wizard-8 neck, you'll know you've got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

RG playability, with fixed-bridge stability

While you may expect to see a vibrato tailpiece on an Ibanez RG, the RGIR20FE Iron Label sports a Gibraltar Standard fixed bridge - a dream come true if you prefer a hardtail axe. The Gibraltar has an ultra-low profile to give you the comfort of a traditional RG floating trem, with the exceptional stability and reliability you can only get from a fixed bridge. If you've always wanted an RG-series guitar, but prefer not to mess with a floating bridge, the RGIR20FE was made just for you.

Active EMGs onboard, for serious tone

The Ibanez 8-RGIR28FE Iron Label is fitted with a pair of hot EMG 808 active humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. There's a reason top metal guitarists use active pickups: they rock. Hard. Stirred with a 5-way blade and poured through volume and tone pots, this heady brew is a veritable tonefest that gives you everything from chimey cleans to searing hot shred - and all points in between.
