Overview

As the legion of converts to the “made-for-metal” Iron Label Series continues to grow, Ibanez continues to work at providing new instruments for those guitarists who choose to take the road less traveled. In keeping with this objective, Ibanez has, once again, broken new ground with the introduction of the RGIM8MH.

While the trapezoidal 27.2 in./25.5 in. scale, multi-scale pattern of the RGIM8MH may initially seem strange or intimidating to the novice, initiates quickly take to how this design optimizes individual string tension to create a more “open” or “alive” tone that not only expands harmonic complexity, but also offers a more comfortable playing experience.

The RGIM8MH features a mahogany body for a fat sound, and matched with a Nitro Wizard 5-piece maple/bubinga neck, these diverse woods work together to create a brighter tone that brings both clarity and definition to even the deepest notes of the lower spectrum.

Working from the philosophy that playing comfort translates into speed, the RGIM8MH features a spacious rosewood fretboard that both 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.

Highly responsive EMG 909 active pickups offer a beefed-up low-end and a super-tight overall distortion sound that’s both articulate and responsive. Simply put: the RGIM8MH represents the obvious, ultimate choice for guitarists ready to plumb new depths in metal and beyond. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Ibanez RG Iron Label Multi-Scale 8-string Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is perfect! It's everything I wanted in a 8 string guitar. I played the rgif8 and this is an exact copy. Only difference is the body is a different wood. Still really light though. Even lighter than my Ibanez k7. My only gripe is in wish they would if made the nut or if something stronger. It seems after a while of changing strings and drop tunning it will file down some and cause unwanted string buzz. Make a stainless steel replacement Ibanez and I'll buy it!!! The emgs sound great as well!!! The low 80 gugae handles F,E, and E flat really nicely. It's too light on this guitar for G flat though. So if you wanna do standard tunning use 74 to 9. I'm about to upgrade the 7 strings to 10 to 59 for f standard tunning. I feel like the 9s are too thin. But 80 is good for e flat as well. I put the link to a song I made in e flat to showcase this. Thanks for reading!

    Service and delivery comments:

    I picked it up from the local guitar center after waiting a few months for it to come out. Well worth the wait!!
