Modded and tweaked with the heaviest of metal in mind.
Meet Ibanez' made-for-metal guitar series, Iron Label. Working from the chassis of their famous RG, Ibanez luthiers modded and tweaked with the heaviest of metal in mind. A classic in its own right, the RG series is a cornerstone of the Ibanez legacy.
As the industry leader in 7 & 8-string production guitars, Ibanez is considered the premiere innovator of technology and development for down-tuned performance instruments.
The RGIR28FE features a basswood body with 5-pc Nitro Wizard-8 neck with a 27 scale to accommodate the added string tension and maintain superior tone and sustain. Electronics include a pair of US made EMG 808 pickups for a responsive, super-tight low end and exceptional articulation, and a 3-way selector switch.
The original low-profile Gibraltar Standard II-8 bridge is designed for precise intonation adjustment, playing comfort and optimum sustain. Sports a pristine high gloss finish and Cosmo Black hardware.
