Electronics include a pair of US made DiMarzio D Activator 8 high-output pickups for strong, percussive, low notes with balanced highs that cut without being piercing. A 5-way switch allows for a variety of tone options.
The original low-profile Gibraltar Standard II-8 bridge, designed for precise intonation adjustment, playing comfort, and great sustain, combine with super smooth Gotoh MG-T locking tuners for superior tuning stability. Hardshell case included.

Comments about Ibanez S5528LW Prestige S Series 8 String Electric Guitar:
This is my dream guitar. It has an amazing tone, and great feel. I understand some players do not like thin necks, but for those who do, myself included, this guitar is perfect. It is lighter than my friend's six string Strat. if you are planning to get a nice eight string, this is perfect. My only problem was that I like light top/heavy bottom strings on my extended range guitars, and this one does not come with them, but once I got new strings, the guitar was simply perfect.
