8-string Glory Meets S Series Performance!

The Ibanez S8 solidbody electric guitar lets you take a headfirst plunge into the 8-string world of hard rock and metal shredding. With the hot-rod-style performance that Ibanez's S Series is know for, the slim and sleek S8 combines fixed-bridge stability with an ultra-thin Wizard II-8 neck for the kind of response you need to run clear across the fretboard at blinding speed. The S8 also comes loaded with a set of IBZ-8 humbuckers, which deliver mind-blowing note definition from ground zero into the tonal stratosphere. When it come to 8-string power with classic rock and metal tone, the Ibanez S8 is your ticket to ride.

Ibanez S8 S Series 8-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Wizard II-8 neck delivers the ultra-fast action that will step up any shredder's game
  • Ibanez IBZ-8 humbuckers provide tight, warm, and aggressive tone
  • Get the rock-solid tuning stability you demand from a Gibraltar Standard-8 bridge
Wizard II-8 neck delivers the ultra-fast action that will step up any shredder's game

Flat, slim, and built for breakneck speed, the Ibanez S8's Wizard II-8 neck is any rock or metal shredder's fantasy incarnate. This 5-piece maple and walnut neck gives you all the bending room you could ask for plus plenty of space so you won't end up tripping over your fingers. A set of KTS titanium reinforcement rods complete the picture, lending the S8 the kind of tuning stability and solidity that holds up to years of hardcore playing.

Ibanez IBZ-8 humbuckers provide tight, warm, and aggressive tone

Eight strings is hardly an advantage, unless you've got the kind pickups that can handle such a broad range of tone. That's why Ibanez loaded this S8 electric guitar with a set of IBZ-8 humbuckers. From the lowest growl to the highest scream, every note you play on your S8 will cut through loud and clear with all the warmth and definition you'd expect from any pair of hard-rocking humbuckers.

Get the rock-solid tuning stability you demand from a Gibraltar Standard-8 bridge

To give the S8 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 S8 super-comfortable to play and giving you picking hand an optimal degree of clearance for speed picking techniques.
