In Last 25 years RG series of solid bodied electric guitars is maybe the most successful one on the entire market. RG arsenal is oriented mainly towards metal and players who prefer shred styles of playing. RG is divided into several sub-series, the Prestige, Premium, Tremolo and Fixed. Prestige is the top series, with Premium right next to it. Tremolo and Fixed serve as entry level series with tremolo and fixed bridges, respectively. This time around Ibanez introduces a fixed bridge juggernaut with 8 strings and 27" scale, it`s name is RG8. It comes with a solid and flat double cut body made of basswood.
