8-string Multiscale RGD from Ibanez Axe Design Lab.

With the Ibanez Axe Design Lab Standard RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver Matte, Ibanez sends an 8-string electric guitar perfectly tailored to the adept playing techniques and tight tones of modern metal. While the well-known RGD design with flat Nyatoh body and fast "Wizard III-8" neck promises excellent playing characteristics, the multiscale construction with extra-long scales for each string and active Fishman Fluence pickups create the basis for tight and multifaceted metal sounds with contemporary sound character. Last but not least, Ibanez completes the Axe Design Lab Standard RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver matte electric guitar with reliable attachments in the form of tuning-stable Gotoh locking tuners and eight mono-rail bridges.

IBANEZ Axe Design Lab Standard RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver Matte
Excellent handling and tight sound: As a contemporary 8-string guitar for modern metal, the Ibanez Axe Design Lab Standard RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver Matte relies on a multiscale construction and Fishman Fluence pickups.

The sleek RGD design with wide body cutaways, all access neck joint and a flat "Wizard III-8" neck promises first class playing characteristics.

Multimensur construction with first-class handling.

In designing the Axe Design Lab RGDMS8, Ibanez pays special attention to agile playing characteristics and a directly responsive sound with tight representation of each string. The trendy multiscale construction with increasing scale lengths between 25.5" and 27.25" (648 mm and 692 mm) gives each string optimal tension so that even deep tunings penetrate the ear with razor-sharp articulation. While the sleek design of the Nyatoh body relies on a large-scale and ergonomic shape to achieve a snug playing position with perfect balance, wide cutaways and the flowing All Access Neck Joint allow unobstructed access to the highest registers of the bolt-on maple-walnut neck. With its wide, but pleasantly flat "Wizard III-8" profile, it creates the best conditions for the easiest implementation of the most accomplished playing techniques.

Fishman Fluence Modern pickups with two voicings and the additional option to coil split provide diverse guitar tones for the styles of modern metal.

Fishman Fluence Modern pickup

In order to elicit adequate metal sounds from the guitar amplifier with a contemporary powerful sound character, Ibanez equips the RGDMS8 eight-stringer from the Axe Design Lab with a Set of innovative Fishman Fluence pickups. With two distinct voicings each and the additional option for coil split, the Fishman Fluence Modern Alnico pickup placed on the neck and the Fishman Fluence Modern Ceramic pickup in the bridge position deliver a particularly diverse sound that ranges from crisp distortion sounds of modern character to rich traditional tones and glassy single coils, and also presents the deepest tunings with razor-sharp articulation. In addition to the 3-way toggle switch for pickup selection and the mini switch for coil split mode, the 8-string electric guitar's straightforward circuitry features a master volume pot that also houses the push/pull switch for changing pickup voicings.

IBANEZ Axe Design Lab Standard RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver Matte Headstock
Gold-plated Gotoh MG-T locking tuners securely hold each string of the RGDMS8 8-string guitar in the correct tuning.

Reliable attachments

Of course, Ibanez completes the Axe Design Lab RGDMS8-CSM Classic Silver matte with reliable attachments that are optimally matched to the characteristics of the 8-string guitar. To support the guitar's upright sound, the Ibanez Mono-Rail single bridges anchor the strings bomb-proof in the wood of the body. The generous adjustment possibilities of the single bridges also guarantee exact intonation and comfortably playable string action. On the headstock, Gotoh MG-T Locking tuners provide unshakable tuning stability and string changes at record speed.
