The Ibanez Prestige RG5328 8-string electric is a metal and rock player's dream. The all-ash body of the RG5328 is resonant, lightweight, and, with a beautiful satin finish, stunning to look at. A 5-piece maple/wenge neck with a Macassar ebony fingerboard and Wizard-8 profile is incredibly playable and responsive, ideal for shredding. In addition, a pair of DiMarzio Fusion Edge 7 Humbucker pickups kicks out smoking-hot humbucker tone.
To give the RG5328 unbeatable stability and sustain, Ibanez turned to their time-tested Gibraltar Standard II-8 bridge. This simple fixed bridge design anchors solidly to the body, providing maximum string-to-body transfer. It also features a super-low profile and a smooth surface, making the RG5328 super comfortable to play and giving your picking hand an optimal degree of clearance for speed picking techniques. For high-performance guitar playing, the Gibraltar Standard II-8 is definitely a favorite at Sweetwater.
Ibanez's Prestige series is filled with amazing instruments â€” all with high-quality components through and through. With the RG5328, you get a well-balanced, resonant ash body plus a lightning-fast Wizard-8 neck, dressed with the ultra-smooth Prestige fret-edge treatment. Factor in DiMarzio pickups (a popular after-market upgrade for many players), and the acclaimed Gibraltar bridge, and it's clear the RG5328 is a premium instrument for serious players.
