IBANEZ RGMS8 MULTISCALE 8 STRING IN BLACK
The Ibanez RG is the most recognizable and distinctive guitar in the Ibanez line. Three decades of metal have forged this high-performance machine, honing it for both speed and strength.
- Multi scale: Equalized tension helps to create a more “alive”, open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player’s hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
- Mono-rail bridge: The Mono-Rail bridge delivers the ultimate in string-to-string isolation, meaning that each string vibrates optimally without be affected by the others.
Multi-scale frets for comfort, tension, and tone
Multi-scale frets are an exciting trend in guitar design aimed at down-tuned and technical playing. Matched to your fretting hand’s natural angle of movement, you get a longer scale length on the bass side of the instrument and a shorter scale on the treble side. Not only does this offer you better intonation across all eight strings, but the higher tension on the low strings adds muscle and punch to your tone. The multi-scale neck construction of this 8-string guitar equalizes that tension, resulting in a vibrant, open tone. At the same time, the higher strings have a familiar scale length for great single-string performance. While getting used to them may seem intimidating, guitarists at Je Matt Guitar have found that it’s a very natural transition.
