Experience New Offerings from Ibanez - The Ibanez RGD Axe Design Lab RGDMS8 Multi-Scale 8-String Electric Guitar in Classic Silver Matte

The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5" scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a "fast" neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.

Axe Design Lab

Ibanez has been creating innovations which do not only fit the unique demands of players from that period, but also eventually turn into industrial standards, such as 7 string, 8 string and Multi scale guitars. All these started from their attitude to be "Innovative, Cutting-Edge and Pioneer". Axe Design Lab is the series fully represents this attitude.

Wizard III 5-Piece Maple/Walnut Neck

Ibanez's thin, flat and fast Wizard neck is strong and sturdy and offers unlimited playability and features a two-octave 24-fret fretboard for a wide tonal range.

Macassar Ebony Fretboard

Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.

Jumbo Frets

Jumbo frets contribute to smooth playability, especially for single-note playing.

Nyatoh Body

Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.

Fishman® Fluence™ Modern Humbucker Alnico / Fluence™ Modern Humbucker Ceramic Pickups

The Fishman® Fluence™ Modern Humbucker pickups provide an aggressive tone and a powerful attack without excess noise.

Gotoh® MG-T Locking Machine Heads

The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.

Mono-Rail Bridge

Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings

Fishman® Fluence™ Voicing Switch On Volume Control (Push/Pull)

The Voicing switch allows the pickups to switch from a modern, active high output sound to a crisp, clean and fluid sound.

Coil-Tap Switch

The coil tap switch adds sound and tonal variations for both pickups.
