Meet Ibanez's 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- and 8-string production guitars, Ibanez is considered the premiere innovator of technology and development for down-tuned performance instruments.
The RGIT28FE features a ash wing body with 7-piece maple/walnut "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.
With metal and nothing but metal in mind, Ibanez modded and tweaked until they got to the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability they took their legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard - as fast and comfortable but with added road-tested durability. Whether it's a 6-, 7- or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG or DiMarzio pickups. Purposefully Spartan, you won't find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead.
