Ibanez J Custom RG8870 Electric Guitar - Black Rutile

Product Description:

Straight out of Ibanez's Axe Design Lab, the J Custom RG8870 is packed to the gills with exclusive features. It all starts with an alder body, which is chambered for lighter weight and extra resonance, and topped with eye-grabbing flamed maple. The back of the RG8870's 5-piece Super Wizard AS neck features a Velvetouch finish for super-smooth playability, and it's capped by a Macassar ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets, which are finished using Ibanez's J Custom fret edge treatment. Reaching the upper frets on this solidbody electric guitar feels effortless, thanks to its deep, beveled lower horn scoop and all-access neck joint. DiMarzio's Tone Zone, True Velvet, and PAF 36th Anniversary pickups push your amp to get crunchy rhythms and hot leads, with a coil-tap switch thrown in for maximum sonic versatility. Beyond that, you can bend, twist, and dive-bomb with impunity, courtesy of an Edge-Zero tremolo. Gotoh machine heads and strap lock pins put the perfect finishing touches on the Ibanez J Custom RG8870.

Incredibly fast J Custom Super Wizard AS neck

Ibanez Wizard necks are thin and built for speed, and they enable effortless playability and comfort. The RG8870 takes that design to the next level with its 5-piece maple/wenge J Custom Super Wizard AS neck. This neck also boasts a Velvetouch finish for the ultimate in smooth playability. Capping the neck is a 24-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard, loaded with jumbo frets that have been given Ibanez's J Custom edge treatment. The RG8870 also includes a deep, beveled lower horn scoop and an all-access neck joint for multidirectional high-fret access and playability. If you're fond of lightning-fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons, you'll be blown away by the just-right feel of the RG8870.

Three DiMarzio pickups cover an expansive sonic range

There's no denying the massive range of tone that you can get out of the Ibanez RG8870's trio of DiMarzio pickups. First, there's the DiMarzio Tone Zone at the bridge — a hot humbucker with a super-wide dynamic range. It's a perfect complement to the RG8870's DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary at the neck, which offers a sweet tone, a perfect balance between warmth and clarity, and the ability to go from clean to distorted with a mere change in your picking attack. Finally, a DiMarzio True Velvet in the middle position offers up clean, punchy high and midrange tones. You'll love this ultra-flexible pickup trio. Beyond that, you get a coil-tap switch, which unlocks even more sonic textures.

Palm muting never felt so good with the Edge-Zero tremolo

Whether you palm mute with precision or simply have a wild strumming style, few things are worse than getting hung up on your bridge during a furious performance. Guitar players at Sweetwater all agree the Ibanez Edge-Zero bridge gets out of the way of your playing while still serving up maximum expression and tuning stability. You'll barely know it's there, thanks to its streamlined profile and recessed fine tuners. And locking studs give you additional tuning stability.
