Ibanez RGIF8 Fan Fret Electric Guitar 8 String w/ hard case
While the trapezoidal 27.2/25.5 scale, Multi-scale pattern of the RGIF8 may initially seem strange or intimidating to the novice, initiates quickly take to how this design optimizes individual string tension to create a more open or alive tone that not only expands harmonic complexity, but also offers a more comfortable playing experience.
The RGIF8 features an ash body finished in a transparent stain that allows the natural markings of the woods grain to emerge, creating a dark, dramatic effect. Matched with a Nitro Wizard 5-piece Maple/Bubinga neck, these diverse woods work together to create a brighter tone that brings both clarity and definition to even the deepest notes of the lower spectrum.
Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed, the RGIF8 features a spacious bound Rosewood fretboard that both enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation. Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings and facilitates flawless intonation. Highly responsive EMG 909X active pickups offer a beefed-up low-end and a super-tight overall distortion sound thats both articulate and responsive.
