What Ibanez Say:
Ibanez is pleased to introduce a RGMS8-BK which features the multiscale.
Using the trapezoidal 27.26"/25.5" scale, the multiscale neck construction provides an equalized tension that creates a lively, open tone. Designed for playability, the slants are matched with the player's hand angles to facilitate quick playing along with the flatling on the 12th fret. By setting the horizontal point close to bridge's side, shredding in high frets is easy.
The super-slim, ultra-comfortable 5pc Maple/Walnut Wizard III neck provides solid stability for the increased tension of the extra strings, and the spacious Baked Jatoba fingerboard enhances playing agility and optimizes articulation. Designed for both stability and sustain, the innovative Ibanez Mono-Rail bridge minimizes cross-talk between strings and facilitates flawless intonation.
New Ibanez Array 8 MS pickups perfectly fit the bill not only in size fitted to the slanted mounting angle but also in sound. Proven performers for down-tuning, their highly responsive, super-tight and low noise growl is a superb match for this metal machine.
