Player's Perspective

The Ibanez RG5328 is a take-no-prisoners 8-string shredder that will melt faces, and is built in Japan with the kind of quality and craftsmanship that inspires you to pick your instrument and play more often.

Ibanez's Prestige series guitars offer some of the best bang-for-your-buck value in the hard rock/metal guitar world. This RG is perfect for anyone who wants superior craftsmanship and incredible playability on an 8-string guitar. The design is simple but effective: two great humbuckers, a bridge that'll give you immense sustain, and a simple finish. The sound of this axe is incendiary. It has tone that is crunchy, smooth, snarling and articulate even if it's covered in loads of saturation. The DiMarzio Fusion Edge 8 Pickups are hot and aggressive and they'll cut like none other, even when heavily soaked with tons of distortion.

The neck has that super fast, comfortable feel that Ibanez has perfected over the years. The extended scale length keeps the perfect tension on all of the strings, even if you're drop-tuning. The fretwork is immaculate to help you achieve super low action for lightning shredding. If you need a guitar that won't slow you down, especially in the mid to upper registers, you'll love how the fingerboard responds. This can easily become your next lifelong shredder axe!


Macassar Ebony fretboard

Gibraltar Standard II Bridge

DiMarzio® Fusion Edge Pickups

Through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio® Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range.

Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads
